By Jerry B. Jenkins
A boy with a troubled childhood . . . becomes a reluctant criminal . . . becomes a broken man on death row who just wants to die. A failed pastor . . . rejected by those he only wants to help . . . finds a new calling. Thomas Carey and Brady Wayne Darby couldn’t be more different. One is a washed-up pastor hoping desperately to make a difference; the other is a criminal who’s worst crime is always the one he’s about to commit. One diligently serves God; the other diligently serves himself. And yet . . . both are sinners in need of grace. So take the first step on a journey to transformation. Join the murderer and the chaplain. Choose between a life of crime and a life of purpose and prepare to leave the ranks of the hopelessly lost and find the One who can save even the most troubled soul.
I started this book several years ago, when it first came out. For various reasons (not the quality of the writing), I put it down, hoping to resume it at a later date. That date, at the urging of my daughter (who is Jerry’s biggest fan), has come.
