Few, if any, of us can say we knew ourselves before being born or give details of where we were and how we got to come to earth. But such is the true story of Don Lucado, otherwise known as Donnie Lee. Despite being sent with an auspicious assignment by Jesus Himself, the road of Don’s life took turns down alleyways of violence and addiction, meeting with blockades of rape, alcohol, and death—all the while being conversely buffeted and policed by angelic beings from both sides of the unseen.
It seems that life’s rapid twists, turns, and near misses needs divine intervention and the miraculous to avoid all out failure. Will this life that poses a challenge even for Don’s guardian angel be redeemed enough for Don to accomplish what he was sent to earth to do, or will he crash and burn?
This true story that often defies credibility is a testimony of the ultimate triumph of good over evil and makes one believe that at some point each of us was once God’s baby from Heaven.
