FAITH, HOPE, LOVE, FORGIVENESS & RACIAL HEALINGOctober 9, 2021
HOW HE DID IT
This book has been categorized as being about crime, the flawed criminal justice system, racism, and wrongful incarceration. It is true. This book speaks to these issues.
It is also true that it speaks to the triumph of the human spirit over the most hopeless and degrading circumstances – of one man’s hellish experience of being trapped on death row for thirty years though innocent of the crime that put him there.
Perhaps what is most true, edifying, and inspiring, is that it gives a ringside seat, to those who dare take it – to “watch” the drama of the miraculous unfolding of exactly how that triumph of spirit is achieved by Anthony Ray Hinton, the book’s author and hero.
It is therefore a most intimate story – the story of a soul on a long, treacherous inward journey that parallels a long, treacherous outward one.
For those seeking a template for personal faith, hope, love, forgiveness, peace, and, possibly national racial healing, this is a must-read. For others, it is a fascinating, engaging, eye-opening story not to be missed.
