Dare to enter one man's Spirit-filled world that overflows with the rejuvenating power of Almighty God. Join him as he ministers to condemned men in their dungeons and testifies to God's unbridled love poured out. Walk beside him as he risks it all to reach out to the most hated man on Texas' Death Row.
I was hoping for conversations between a Chaplain and men and women on Death Row. I am totally against the death penalty however my stance on this very important subject changed only during the last few months.
Realizing that these convicts are on death row for many years I was looking forward to reading about their thoughts, feelings, how they dealt with their situation. I really felt that as Rick Anderson has such an exceptional reputation he would be most objective.
I must admit that I was initially disappointed whilst 'wading' through the first few chapters especially as it was so very, VERY religious. (Please note if you are not a Christian PLEASE hang on in there....I am in the same boat but I did keep going!)
I was so close to returning this book but I loved Josh Kilbourne's performance kept me invested.
By the time I got half way through I was 'hooked'. I really started to enjoy this volume. I admired Rick's strength and courage. Even when everything around him appeared to be falling apart he stayed true to his beliefs and to himself.
Would I have purchased this book if I had known what it was really all about? No. Do I regret it? Not at all.
Worth reading again when spirits are low.
