"A beautiful testimony of how our shared-life in God is renewed through story. It shows the reconciling power of God's love in our openness and vulnerability - the way to Peace. If you want to see who we are created to be for one another, read this book. It is a wake-up call."
Sr. Helen Prejean
Author of DEAD MAN WALKING
Robbed and shot at ATM. Craving revenge. Bill Dyer was locked up in anger, hatred, and resentment .Then a miracle happened. God led Bill out of darkness and into prison to share his story with inmates for unfinished business.
In Doing Time with God, you go into prison with Bill and other victims of violence to meet with convicted felons who will be facing their worst and greatest realizations, before they are released. Nothing is predictable when this unlikely group shares their stories with one another for healing, rehabilitation, and Peace.
Victim-survivors remember their losses and feel their pain. Offenders come face-to-face with the hurt they have caused, and open wounds from their own past. Walls of defensiveness and fear are knocked down by empathy and compassion, vulnerability and tears.
Raw emotions flow.
The way to peace is often intense, turbulent, and heartbreaking. Even when it’s not pretty, the journey is beautiful in its honesty… miraculous in the way it unfolds…divine in how it transforms lives.
While reading this book, you may experience these things happening in yourself. Discussion questions and an afterword by the author invite you to reflect on your own journey, discover new meaning, and expand this movement of Peace in your life.
