Christopher Zoukis, an award-winning author, has published a bold spectrum of essays, articles, book reviews, and poems. However, his most recent writing endeavor is functioning as a Staff Writer for the State & Federal Criminal Law Review. Currently housed in Petersburg Federal Correctional Complex, Christopher Zoukis also serves as the Editor for the Education Behind Bars Newsletter as well as a contributing writer at Blogcritics. His first two years in the correctional institution were a time of self-loathing and chronic depression marked by both physical and mental struggles. By 2008, however, Christopher Zoukis’ self-pity faded as he began a spiritual journey, which entailed a strict routine of daily religious study and the acceptance of Jesus Christ as his personal Savior. Inspired by his spiritual transformation, Christopher Zoukis embarked on a scholarly pursuit of his newfound faith, enrolling in Global University, from which he obtained a Certified Ministrer Certificate. On the completion of his religious achievement, Zoukis then enlisted in Moody Bible Institute’s Distance Learning program, earning a certificate from the Personal Ministry and Leadership Series. While imprisoned, Christopher Zoukis also authored his first book, titled Education Behind Bars, which is scheduled for release in December 2011.
