Review of "Street God" by Dimas Salaberrios with Dr. Angela Hunt

From a very young age, Dimas Salaberrios was a drug dealer, convict, and eventual addict. He maintained a certain twisted morality, but did not shy away from violence to defend himself or protect his turf. This memoir is full of story after story of drug encounters and violence and all around disreputable behavior - but looking back, he knew the hand of God was on his life. Eventually Dimas (or Daylight as he was known on the street) was transformed by his relationship with Jesus and began to serve him wholeheartedly. To date, he pastors a church and continues to serve Jesus along with his wife Tiffany.

I usually love a good memoir and this definitely did not disappoint. This is not an area that I have much life experience with and I found his story to be fascinating. It is also a great example of how God can truly change a life and give true calling, passion, and purpose, no matter your background.

I was provided a free copy from Tyndale Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
