EVERYBODY HAS A STORY
“Some may seem uneventful, others dramatic, while others are life changing. This story, Marcus’ story, is a life changer.”
The Love of a Father and the Journey of His Prodigal Son
In his debut memoir, author Marcus Clapper captivates readers with his salvation story, which eventually leads to his spiritual rebirth. Raised by devout Christian parents, Clapper always knew God was present, but never fully understood His presence for himself; only through the experience of his parents. With limited knowledge of God and seeking a life gratifying to himself, Clapper embarked on his own life's path only to become enthralled in addiction, crime and a life without boundaries. Blind to the light and hope within himself, Clapper was broken and ashamed believing his mistakes were unforgivable. Fearful, insecure, and depressed, he never believed love, joy, and peace were possible in his life.
Miraculously, he survived this murky and disastrous time in his life where he slit relationships, risked his health and freedom, hurt loved ones, dented lives and livelihoods, and suffered from addiction.
For years, he wrestled with, and was tormented by, the belief that he will never be forgiven or given the opportunity to make amends-until he obliged an unlikely request from an unlikely requestor.
