Book Review: Convicted
Yesterday, Jameel McGee and Andrew Collins book Convicted was released. It is a story about forgiveness and unlikely friendship. It is a story of a crooked cop and an innocent man.
When I picked up this book, I didn't expect reading this story of forgiveness would be so hard for me. It wasn't an easy read because it was hard to see both sides of the story and how each others' decisions impact each life. It is tough to read, but it is a rewarding read. It is nice to see how redemption comes into the picture, how God's love wins out, and how the miracle of friendship occurs in spite of past circumstances.
Jameel and Andrew tell their story which presents the power of forgiveness, the act of keeping extending grace, being aware of the wrong done but not holding it against the person. The forgiveness opens the door to a friendship that both men grow from, and eventually writing this book, Convicted. God's grace is amazing, and it is neat to watch it in action in the lives of many.
If you're looking for an interesting and compelling true story to read, definitely pick up a copy of Convicted by Jameel McGee and Andrew Collins. Thanks to Waterbrook and Multnomah for sending me a copy of Convicted to review, I enjoyed reading it.
