Real-estate entrepreneur Bill Dallas's charmed life changed dramatically when he was charged, convicted, and sentenced to five years in prison for grand-theft embezzlement. Lessons from San Quentin tells the amazing true story of how one man's life was changed for the better due to the hardships encountered at the legendary maximum-security prison. Using stories and reflections from life on the inside, Bill teaches 12 core principles that will inspire readers to use tough times to develop the character God wants them to have.
I came across this book while searching for George Barna. The fact that there was only one very negative review was intriguing - George Barna's stuff is so solid and foundational, he wouldn't put his name with rubbish. The preview sounded good, so I bought it... and listened to it all before writing this.
The Reader is easy to listen to.
The story is well told and hooked me in from the start.
the Format is Good, with a Transformation Principle at the end of each chapter.
The Content is Strong, and Applicable.
This is an illustration of the resurrection power of Jesus to bring a broken, selfish man back to 'Life in abundance'. Chapter 14 alone is worth buying the book for.
Well done Bill Dallas, thanks for sharing your scars, I have some Youth including my son who I'm going to offer this book to. And I'm going to preach portions of this story this coming year.
And George Barna, when are we going to see some of your books on Audible?

Another awesome George Barna book narrated by Bill Dallas, whom the book is about. Very encouraging! I'll be listening to this again!
