Faith changes everything. In the early 1960s, his mother was an eighteen-year-old prostitute for an underworld figure in Cleveland, Ohio, when she became pregnant—a hazard of the trade. A back-alley abortion failed, and Ron came into this world as a neglected afterthought. He was abused by a babysitter, teased unmercifully by classmates for his constant stuttering, and neglected at home. At age ten, he put a loaded snub-nosed revolver to his head and pulled the trigger.
The gun didn’t fire.
With the help of a heroic teacher who introduced him to the Bible, Ron discovered Jesus Christ and finally found his voice. Now a celebrated public speaker, Ron reaches out to others who are in despair, sharing the hope that can only come from God. In What Belief Can Do, you too can discover how God can transform your pain into power—and your tragedy into triumph.
