Desperate Highway is unlike any other Christian book ever written. This book is targeted at those that are extremely disinterested in anything that has to do with Christians, Bibles, Bibles Study, Church, and unfortunately, Jesus Himself, as I once was.
Why will they, or any person, want to read it? It’s an action adventure, X rated, true story about my life; about a criminal enterprise spanning 15 years…10 years on the run as a fugitive with 24 arrests and 7 felony convictions. Then in 1987 at 40 years old, while serving time in a Federal Prison, Jesus changed everything about my life, a life that didn’t really want to change and was totally lost.
I am currently a mentor for Mr. Jones, a 26 year old man who is in prison, finishing out his 7th year. I asked him, “how many are in here.” He said, “about 700.” I asked, “how many would admit they know Jesus?” He answered, “I’ll be generous and guess 15%.” About 100… that leaves 600 with NO HOPE and extremely not interested… just as I was once. I asked him, “Would anyone of these 600 pick up a book with any well known Christian teacher’s name on it?” He said, “Get real man!”
There are millions of souls that have a curable sickness that cannot be cured any other way. We are made up of two distinct beings: the Natural (or Physical) and the Spiritual. We pour 99.9% of our effort into the Natural which is Temporal and Useless says the Lord. We ignore the Spiritual part of us which is Eternal, it seeks some-thing, and can be filled by only One, and will be made whole by its Creator… and is fulfilled and perfected when Jesus reveals Who He is.
There are 2 million plus people in prison that have little to no hope and another 20 million plus in county jails, on probation, some form of supervision or just plain ex-cons that have no hope. They are the number one target for this book. Then there are another 20 million plus people in law enforcement and another 100 million plus people who know one or more of the above… family, friends, etc.
