Those who do not have eyes to see and ears to hear may dismiss such a fantastic testimony, especially certain coincidences like seeing his sister in church the very day he just happens to have the exact amount of money he once stole from her. I, on the other hand, am no stranger to such events and co-incidences.
Though I am older than the author and grew up north of NYC, his depiction of that era is, sadly, accurate. I recall buying weed in Manhattan, heroin and coke through holes in the walls in Queens and Brooklyn, or scoring some "Crazy Eddie" angel dust in the Bronx. But of course God's sovereign grace prevails. Despite my knowing, blasphemous resentment of his intervention, the Hound of Heaven always acquires his prey.
Blessings upon you, Dimas Salaberrios, my brother.
The book is an interesting tale, but focuses more on the events , rather than his internal struggles. I would've appreciated more of an understanding of how his mindset was transforming. Most of the events talked about various back stabbings , new ventures, and making new business partners.
The second half of the book focuses a lot on his ministry afterwards . The two seem disjointed, but that's the way many true life experiences sometimes are.
I'm sorry that I don't rate books the way most people do. I very rarely give five stars. A four-star book has to be very well-written and memorable. To me, a three-star book is a good book, but not necessarily memorable.
How much can one person be used when he is seeking riotousness and willing to do whatever he is inspired to do in the name of the collective good? How many lives can be transformed and inspired by one man loving the fatherless in a way that our Heavenly Father intended them to be loved?
Dimas’s transformation is something to behold, but his visits to prisons and kind, consistent presence in a neighborhood forgotten and neglected by society is what brought me to tears, with the thought, “More of this, Please!”
May God continue to use Paster Salaberrios to raise up young men ready to become fathers and leaders to their generation!
I have a ministry to ladies in strip clubs and many deal with addiction. I will be purchasing this copy for many of them.
