I can't say enough about this book! Every Christian and every pastor should read this book. This is what the Christian faith should look like in America today. Christianity is going strong all over the world and the people in those other countries are sold out to Jesus Christ and believe in miracles and they receive them! We in North America are trying hard to neutralize the gospel and make it comfortable for us but that's not what it is all about. In this one part of the Bronx, NY, Dimas Salaberrios is living out the real thing. Like Nicky Cruz of The Cross and the Switchblade book by David Wilkerson, Dimas started out dealing drugs at a young age. He went through some fiery times until he finally surrendered to the call of God on his life and gave his heart and soul to Jesus Christ.
I couldn't put this book down. I was thrilled to find evidence that real faith was alive and well still here in America and that people were being told about the Gospel and were receiving it gladly. If all of us would get off our comfortable pews and go out and proclaim it, God would heal our land as promised in the scriptures. Read this one as soon as you can. It will thrill and excite you!
I received this book from Tyndale House in exchange for a fair and honest review and I am so glad I did. I've already passed my copy along to my pastor to read and will likely be buying more copies so I can pass it on to more people to read.
