After being sentenced to life in prison, Eddy had an encounter with God in a jail cell in Brooklyn. As the story unfolds his faith grows to the point that he does not believe he will be in prison long. After a year he is released. Restoring his life from a gang member and a drug addict, God also healed him of a blood disease due to intravenous drug use. As he became a certified addiction counselor/mental health professional he began working in a mental health facility, and the lessons he has learned are laid out in this memoir for the addict and the addict's family. Various kinds of fears which shape our beliefs and how we feel about a particular race or nationality or even ourselves are hardwired into our brains--this memoir addresses those fears in an introspective personal way, and by example a way to overcome them.
