The much-beloved and acclaimed Christian fiction author delivers a redemptive delight with the story of an ex-con who learns the hard way that it's better to be with God than without Him. Deon "Rocky" Rockford is released after serving nearly twenty five years in jail. He may have been "saved" on the inside, but now that his term, originally a life sentence, has been overturned, and he's free from the shackles of the prayers of the men's ministry of the New Hope Church, he wants only to focus on himself. As fearless as he is strong, this big, brawny guy won many brawls behind bars, and feels ready to forge a new life in the infamous community of Shelton Heights. But he soon starts to see that the only "rock" he can count on is God.

display_description After spending nearly a quarter of a century in prison, the felon known only as "Rocky" is finally a free man. He knows that the overturning of his life sentence was largely due to the prayers of the men's ministry at New Hope Church, but when he is released, Rocky only intends to live for good ... not for God. Trying to live holy comes with its price too, however, and as Rocky connects with his new friend in the infamous community of Shelton Heights, his world turns upside down for reasons he can't explain--P. [4] of cover.
