27 Summers : My Journey To Freedom, Forgiveness, And Redemption During My T
In one of America’s most notorious prisons, a young man sentenced to life without parole miraculously found faith, forgiveness, redemption, and restoration. In 27 Summers Ronald Olivier shares his dramatic and powerful story and offers proof that God can bring healing and hope to even the darkest circumstances.
As a teenager Ronald Olivier ran wild in the streets of New Orleans, selling drugs, stealing cars, and finally killing someone on what was supposed to be the happiest day of the year–Christmas Day. Facing the consequences of his crime, he remembered what his mother once said. “Baby, if you ever have real trouble, the kind that I can’t get you out of, you can always call on Jesus.” So he did.
Ron was sentenced to life in prison without parole. Through the agony of solitary confinement and multiple transfers into increasingly dangerous prison environments, Ron kept seeking God for healing and hope. Finally, after being locked up for twenty-seven summers at the notorious Louisiana State Penitentiary–known as Angola–Ron was miraculously released. Remarkably, he became the director of chaplains at Mississippi State Penitentiary. Today, Ron loves to combat hopelessness, wherever he finds it, by saying, “Don’t tell me what God can’t do!”
*learn new insights about faith and patience from a man who spent almost three decades in a cruel and violent environment;
*be encouraged, like Ron, to find grace and forgiveness to overcome the pain of their past; and
*find hope that God can redeem and restore anyone.
Ron’s fascinating story brilliantly displays God’s power to transform individuals, families, and communities, reminding us that there truly is nothing God can’t do.
