"A true story of racial reconciliation and radical forgiveness. With all the disturbing news about race relations in America, here's a true story of reconciliation and the redemptive power of the gospel. How can you possibly forgive the man who falsely arrested you for a crime you did not commit? After years in prison, during a chance encounter with the crooked police officer, a young African American man named Jameel McGee faced such a dilemma: Would he violently take revenge or peacefully walk away? Mulling the agonizing choice, Jameel heard the now familiar whisper in his soul--let it go. He listened and chose forgiveness, setting in motion a transforming miracle. In the days and months that followed, the men first achieved reconciliation, then through the power of Christ-like love, became friends. This stunning true story provides a path forward for all who desire the healing, hope, and respect for others that have eluded our nation far too long."--Jacket.

This is a well written book that goes back and forth between the two main characters - a crooked cop and a man that he sent to prison. I found it very easy to read and enjoyed the story overall. It is based on a true story. Forgiveness is something that we know that we should do but that doesn't come easy for us. This story shows true forgiveness and renewal - God's forgiveness and man's forgiveness. Check it out!
