Blessed and Highly Favored : Memoirs of a Multiple Felon
It is amazing how heightened one's beliefs become when faced with a crisis. Locked inside of that prison van, facing what would more than likely be the rest of my life behind bars, I felt more connected to God than at any other time in my life, believing with all my heart that the miracle I needed to save me from a life sentence would somehow be provided. For some inexplicable reason, I just felt that this was not the way God intended for my life to end, pining away in a prison cell and waiting to die. Theo Harris, a seven-time felon, is no stranger to the criminal justice system. Having spent most of his life in and out of prison as the result of an ongoing battle with substance abuse, Theo writes about his life in vivid detail. You will not only come to see and understand how crime and addiction can creep into the narrative of an all-American story but will also come to celebrate and marvel at the ultimate power of God's grace to heal and liberate. Blessed and Highly Favored was written for the currently incarcerated, the formerly incarcerated, and the at-risk population in our communities. This inspirational book is also a must-read for anyone working or teaching in the fields of criminal justice, sociology, behavioral psychology, or substance-abuse counseling. Blessed and Highly Favored is Theo's miraculous story of a seven-time felon who was given seven chances to get it right.
