“HE CAME TO PAY A DEBT HE DIDN’T OWE
BECAUSE I OWED A DEBT I COULDN’T PAY.”

MURDERER. It’s a word few people ever expect to apply to them. But for fourteen-year-old Ray, it’s suddenly a reality. Provoked by a gang leader into the random shooting of an innocent guy, Ray now faces a forty-year sentence in Chicago’s infamous prison system. As far as Ray is concerned, it might as well be for life.

In prison, Ray finds his gangbanger ties difficult to escape and even necessary for survival. Just when he’s resigned himself to this new existence, though, Ray receives an unexpected gift—forgiveness. Even as he learns that the source of this forgiveness is God, Ray struggles with accepting it. And then the ultimate test comes: When faced with the man who ruined his life, can Ray extend the same forgiveness that has been handed to him?
