Overview

Robert Leon Davis was a street kid from a tough community. Raised on the brink of poverty, he and his siblings often went hungry, but with the help of a family in the neighborhood, he beat the odds and studied criminal law at Loyola
University and joined the New Orleans police department in 1975.

He began his career with aspirations of being a great cop, but before long he was exposed to a darker side of law enforcement. While partnered with a veteran, Davis first witnessed an officer violating the very laws he had vowed to uphold--and he shared in his crime. One compromise led to another, and Davis soon was caught and faced a substantial prison term. Cops in prison don't last long. He fled.

    Beautifully written, alarmingly honest, genuinely emotional, gripping!

    Running Scared by Robert Leon Davis is NOT a book for the faint of heart, mind or spirit. As I read through the pages, moving with Robert through his journey, my heart was challenged (I cried), my mind was twisted (¿Would I have done that? COULD I have done that?¿), and my spirit was tested (¿Didn¿t God get tired of ¿playing¿ with this man? Yes, God IS patient.¿) I had to, at 2 different points, force myself to stop reading. Not at all because I wanted to, but because I needed to process all that I had taken in. I had to let myself FEEL what was happening. Davis¿ writing style put me smack-dab in the middle of an amazing adventure of love, hate, physical and mental challenge, hustling, and humility. Add to that the fact that this is a true account, and the value of this work goes absolutely through the roof! We might never have heard Davis¿ story, he could have died in one of those forests or confrontations. We might have heard it from someone who pieced together bits and pieces and decided to ¿make a few dollars¿. But the beauty is that neither of those is true. We are hearing the story, directly from Davis. Not Davis, from a prison cell; but Davis from a place of absolutely liberty! Davis¿ book is a fine example for all of us, that despite whatever situation we are in, we must tackle one challenge at a time. I am thankful to read Davis¿ story - not as a work of fiction, not second-hand, and not after the person has left this earth. I am thankful that God protected Davis all those years, accepted His wayward son when he returned, and inspired Davis to share his story with us. It is beautifully written, at times alarmingly honest, genuinely emotional, and gripping throughout. A testament that life can be tough, but challenges can be overcome (despite the odds), because God is real! Bravo, Mr. Davis!

    One of the Best!

    Once in a while I read a book that not only entertains me, but causes me to think long after the final sentence. Running Scared by Robert Leon Davis is one of those books.

    I loved the transparency Robert Leon Davis uses to share his mistakes and the lessons learned. Several times I found myself talking to the pages concerning some of the decisions the author made. I celebrated the spiritual transformation and the mercy the Father extended toward him.

    I admire Mr. Davis for paying it forward by reaching out to the different age groups in the back of the book.

    I recommend this book to everyone and have made Running Scared required reading for my sons.
