In this entertaining autobiography, Dabbs paints an endearing image of himself: a large, African American man with an even larger heart and an important mission. This popular motivational speaker to high-school students and at-risk youth offers convincing examples of faith in action and God�s power to love and heal all wounds. Having to deal with the circumstance of his birth (he was adopted and raised by his mother�s high-school teacher) as well as his own human frailties, Dabbs discovers the power of helping others. This book asserts that people can change, that history does not have to repeat itself, and that true progress involves working through our hang-ups, not going around them. Dabbs offers several humorous and profound stories of personal transformation involving family, friends, youth, and strangers he has met along his life�s incredible journey. Bible stories with special flair and a modern voice are woven into the narrative, and work exercises at the end of each chapter are provided for individual and group reflection. This presents a unique brand of hope. --Susan DeGrane
