A Latino Gangbanger’s Miraculous Escape From a Life of Violence to a New Life in Christ
Casey Diaz with Mike Yorkey
A visceral insider’s look at the violent world of gangs and prison life, the book is a remarkable demonstration of God’s unending grace and desire to reach even the worst of sinners—no matter where they are. The son of El Salvadorian immigrants, Casey Diaz was brought to Los Angeles at the age of two. An abusive, impoverished family life propelled Casey at only eleven years of age into the Rockwood Street Locos gang. Casey was willing to do anything to be number one, but years of chasing rival gang members led to a dramatic ambush and arrest by the Los Angeles Police Department.
At just sixteen, Casey was sentenced to more than twelve years in solitary confinement in California’s toughest prison as one of the state’s most violent offenders. He thought his life was over. Yet, when a determined elderly woman paid Casey a visit, a whole new world began to unfold this youthful-in-isolation prisoner. Casey scoffed as his visitor quietly insisted God was going to use him. As the days in solitary wore on, Casey realized Someone else was calling the shots. What happened next can only be described as a miracle.
The closing chapter offers very useful advice and tips to readers for keeping youth out of gangs life. Paperback, 224 pages
