Editorial Reviews

Review

"Tragic Redemption gives a great insight as to how to break life patterns of guilt and shame so you can lead a more positive life and walk with the Lord. It is a must read!" --Bobby Bowden; former Florida State University Head Football Coach

Review

"Hiram Johnson' experience reminds me of a guy precariously backed up and pinned against his own goal line. Through a series of penalties, fumbles, and mistakes, he was on the verge of being knocked out and losing the game. But upon further review, he called upon the Holy Spirit to enter the game and to quarterback the team. The Spirit not only gets the team away from the looming shadows of their own goalpost, but more importantly, He begins to use Hiram as His loving vessel to show others how to rally their team to victory. Through an incredibly difficult set of circumstances, God reveals His mighty grace and forgiveness." --Bill McCartney, Promise Keepers Founder

Format: Paperback
This poignant story unfolds as a fun loving college student is driving a car full of other fun loving students. The carefree students live in the trust of an innocent bubble where life is good and the future is bright. Their bubble is suddenly punctured when the driver loses control of the car which results in the death of a young high school student, Tina. Author Hiram Johnson's heartbreaking experiences prove the power that tragedy has to shape one's life.

In a state of emotional spasms, Johnson battles his way through a laundry list of therapies, medications, alcohol, and finally a suicide attempt. The author states that for him "faith was just a mere option on my crowded menu of coping behaviors". Yet, through his trials and quest for hope, he discovered his deep faith and found the hope he had been seeking. He recognized he had discovered a complete plan for reducing guilt while developing personal growth.

The book is succinct, easy to read, and dispenses constructive and effective detailed advice. Tragic Redemption is for those who feel like they have been through the wringer as well as for professionals who are looking for a way to help alleviate the suffering of those they serve. The beneficial guide will steer you toward finding your own clarity and finding what is true for you in your heart.

This book was tremendous. I saw the author on God's Learning Channel being interviewed and had to have the book. He's walk through the process of emotional healing is at times very difficult to read, but very eye-opening for anyone that needs help understanding and dealing with different types of tragedies.

Tragic Redemption: Healing The Guilt and Shame
By Hiram Johnson, Austin, Texas: LangMarc Publishing, 2006. 181 pages, paperback.
Reviewed by James W. Pruett, Ph.D.
In his reflective autobiography Hiram Johnson tells his story with both courage and transparency but also models how to reframe the "dark side" of personality in order to claim redemption. His story mirrors everyone's search for wholeness, meaning, purpose, and hope.
The autobiography begins with Johnson as a college junior drinking and driving and getting distracted by a friend. The result was a tragic accident in which a high school girl was killed. Johnson resultantly experienced sustained depression, shame, guilt, doubt, and recapitulated family of origin issues that led to psychiatric hospitalization. Midst his "dark night of the soul" Johnson found grace, his deeper Self, transformation, re-contextualization of life, and both personal and professional formation.
The author models the value of engaging the forbidden at new depths of the soul while finding new insights regarding how God is actively present in the process. He describes his fears, loneliness, questions, and emptiness drawing the reader into his chaos, confusion, and pain. He finds meaning by utilizing Christian scriptures, stories of others such as Abraham Lincoln, and writings of theologians. Pertinent themes addressed include the role of alcoholism, the need for God's power, guilt as bondage with unconscious payoffs, conquering shame and receiving the blessing, common grace, forgiveness midst self confrontation at the cross, positive responses to adversity, and meaningful suffering.
This reader experienced tears of sadness and joy connecting with the writer's soul and inspired by his reflections on his journey.

Hiram Johnson has been there! He faced a tragedy early in his life that paralyzed him in many ways and nearly took away any meaning and purpose his life might have had.

Instead God taught him how to overcome while still facing that his struggle was not going to be fixed overnight. This book is well-written, compelling and practical for anyone dealing with personal guilt and shame for whatever the reason.
