In order for change to take place, there has to be a physical or spiritual shift in thoughts and/or emotions to a place different than you were when you began. That's just what Chatman Payne did! He went from rebellious street tyrant to a restored son of God. Clearly God had a plan for his life. He preserved him for a specific purpose.

Each chapter walks you through some of the most significant parts of his rebellious state. The levels of pain, hurt, anger and eventual deliverance are intriguingly uncovered in the text.

Now Chatman is telling his story of near death experiences, restoration and being made whole not for personal gain, but to help countless others. What did it take for God to finally get through to him? Read his miraculous testimony of transformation from the inside out as only the hand of God could have done. Let the same power that worked for him work for you!

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Any kingdom where people fight each other will end up ruined. And a town or family that fights will soon destroy itself. Matthew 12:25, CEV

North Philadelphia was a working- class town back in the 1950's. For the African-American community that lived here, life was what they made it. Some had neither the skills nor the education to get the kind of work that would pay them decent wages. Others had dreams of becoming all that they could be, but had to hurdle stereotypes and racial prejudice to truly make their way to the success they saw in the distance.
As a child growing up, we lived in the projects. Our neighbors did handyman jobs, washed cars, unloaded supply trucks, cooked or cleaned houses for whites, worked in factories or simply bustled around seeking jobs that would help them keep body and soul together. My family did not buy into that lifestyle. Neither of my parents worked. We lived, for the most part, on welfare. Sometimes I wished one of them worked so that they would not be together so much, getting on each others nerves. They argued constantly and fought viciously. In a strange way, I think they loved each other, but they could not stay together long enough before it became a knock- down, dragged- out brawl.
I believe I hated that. I know for sure it scared me, but I had no other models on which to base family life. Sometimes I could hear my neighbors having their own fights, and I could easily visualize what it was like because I had seen so much in my own house. Yet, by the time I went downstairs to the playground, all that ugliness dissolved in the sandbox or at the now broken basketball hoops and I was free to be a child once more.
