Now I Walk on Death Row by Dale Recinella

Wow...this book would be an excellent read for anyone, but people groups who come to mind would be lawyers, people interested in Wall Street and finance, people involved in prison work and Catholics.  Having said that...I am in none of the above categories and came away from the reading of this book challenged and convicted.
To me, there is nothing greater than hearing someone's experience of their relationship with Jesus.  Dale is an excellent writer and the story he tells of God's call on his life is shared with honesty and humor.
One part that stood out to me was the resistance he and his wife met from the Catholic church when trying to serve the Lord.  I found it a wonderful reminder that God calls us all to serve in His ministry...not just full-time pastors or priests.  I was glad to see the purpose the Lord had for that entire disappointing experience which led to a greater rewarding one.  So often even our best well-intentioned ideas are just not the same as God's plans for our lives.
I enjoyed seeing how God led Dale and his family each step of the way into service for Him
Such a wonderful book that I had to read it all in two nights!!!

I received a free copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
