More About Doing Time with God by MR Bill Dyer
True crime stories provide the foundation of this prison memoir. Bill Dyer was robbed and shot at an ATM. In Doing Time with God, you go into prison with him 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 victims and offenders come together and share their stories of the true crimes that have devastated their lives...and reshaped them. 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. This Amazing Process Opens the Heart, Touches the Soul, and Renews the Mind As you read about how God uses true crime drama for much greater purposes, 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. "It shows the reconciling power of God's love in our openness and vulnerability - the way to Peace. Read this book. It is a wake-up call." -Sr. Helen Prejean, csj, Author of Dead Man Walking If you like Dean Man Walking, you will love this true crime book for the moving spiritual journey that takes place in prison. Victims of violence and prison inmates search for forgiveness, hope, and the love of God...finding them in one another.
