Publisher's Summary

His street name was Daylight. But he was a nightmare. On the streets of New York, darkness and violence reigned. Dimas "Daylight" Salaberrios began selling drugs when he was 11 years old, and by 16 he had served his first stint at the notorious Rikers Island prison. Dimas saw only one way to survive: by reigning over the streets. He would be the richest, most powerful ruler in the hood...or die trying.

Street God is the true story of one man's dangerous journey through the underworld of crime, drugs, and almost certain death. It was an encounter with the real God that saved his life - and then made it even more dangerous. Because that God sent Dimas back down the darkest streets he'd ever known - with other lives depending on it. And Dimas had to ask the question: How far am I prepared to go?

A dramatic, compelling memoir full of twists and turns, Street God delves deep into a world from which few ever emerge - and shows how a single spark of light can illuminate even the darkest existence.

    It was a good true story of a man's journey from a drug lord lifestyle to one that honours Jesus.

    "Awesome inspiring testimony"

    The kingdom of God pushing back the darkness, and brining beauty for ashes. Faith building, covicting, awe-inspiring. Didn't want to stop listening until I knew how his story ends.

    Story
    "Exceptional Adventure Biography"

    A thrilling adventure biography from cover to cover. Dimas recalls his story from adolescence to adulthood with remarkable clarity. The imagery from his youth, living in crack houses and dealing on the streets and in boarded up closets, is captivating. I found myself sitting in my car as I arrived home from work, not wanting to get out because I didn't want to stop listening to the book.

    Much of the book is about his road to Street God, or Drug Lord. But the most fascinating part of the story is how God manages to grab hold of his heart and protect him through it all. Eventually, Dimas has a miraculous transformation, and the final chapters of the book are about his amazing road back to NYC and the Projects.

    There is much to love about this book, but I loved that much of his discussion of his life back in the Projects, teaching the youth about Jesus, focused on discipleship, and actively caring for those in his community. It seems as though we Christians have gotten in the habit of thinking that being a Christian means voting a certain way and attending a local mega-church on Sunday. Dimas shows a very different kind of Christianity, one that causes the community to notice our actions more than our words, and one that doesn't require giant buildings to accomplish Kingdom goals.

    Finally, on a side note, I loved that Dimas showed how effective prayer and fasting was in his various ministries. It seems like this is an almost forgotten, or taboo, discipline in the American Church today.

    "Down to earth, real, and electrifyingly propelling."

    Charged my faith. Very real and down to earth. A present reminder that God is still active and refuses to be boxed in.
