Review: "Street God"

Street God, by Dimas Salaberrios, is the author's story of how, though he was brought up in a "good" family, he turned to selling drugs for money and power, and then turned to using them himself. 

He ended up in prison several times, and escaped.  While he was on the run, he reunited with his sister who had become a Christian, and he was called to Christ as well, though changing from a drug boss to finally turning himself in and witnessing to Christ took time.  But the day came when he turned himself in and went to prison a final time, this time as a servant of Christ.

After being released from jail, he encountered Rev. Tim Keller, and together, Dimas started a church, which he pastors to this day.  (I wish he had written more about this, especially with the author's claim to "hear" God speak to him frequently.)

This is a persuasive story of how God can redeem anyone for Himself.  May God use it to encourage others to give up and surrender to Christ.
