About this title

Synopsis:

A convicted criminal relates how he found God and how his conversion affected his life.

From the Back Cover:

Richard David Coss was a hardened convict and habitual criminal, listed by the FBI as "dangerous and incorrigible." The son of alcoholic parents, he committed his first crime at the age of nine and quit school at fifteen. He became a drug addict, and by the age of twenty-five he had accumulated twenty-eight convictions and spent nine years behind bars.

Prison psychologists, social workers, rehabilitation experts, and sociologists all failed to change him. Coss seemed destined for a life in jail. But one afternoon a group of Baptist deacons confronted him with the message of Jesus Christ, and his life was instantly and permanently changed.

Coss became a new person, was paroled, and in 1975 received one of three Presidential Pardons from Gerald Ford.

In the years that followed, he experienced his share of gains and losses, yet no loss was as severe as that suffered on April 19, 1995--the day of the Oklahoma City bombing. Coss, a grandfather at the time, would describe that day as "the worst day of my life." Yet he and his remaining family survived with the support of each other and the strength of their faith.

Richard Coss is an ordained minister and lectures in prisons and schools throughout the country. Wanted tells the moving story of how his life was changed, while also pointing the way for others in similar situations.
