Overview

Short Description:
From Bible college to life in prison. Scott takes readers through an emotional roller coaster from his addiction to porn at only nine years old to nearly murdering a relative and all the ominous details from his time in prison. But this book isn't entirely dark. There's an amazing plot twist when Scott meets an unusual ex-con named, Jesus. Get ready for a wild read that you'll never forget. Ever.

Long Description:
In August 1999, Scott Smith enrolled in Bible College with aspirations to become a minister for Jesus . . . Wait! That's not actually true. He only attended for the girls.

A few years later, after engaging in a string of criminal activities, Scott found himself in a much different institution after being sentenced to life in prison-and the only "girls" were the HIV-positive transvestites.

Within the first few days locked behind 60-foot high walls, Inmate #461419 quickly realized he wasn't prepared for the rampant gang violence, corrupt guards, and suicides. He was in a new type of hell on earth that his religious textbooks never mentioned.

In this captivating memoir, Scott takes readers behind the walls by sharing entries from his secret prison journal. He also reveals the intimate details that led to his life sentence.

In Jesus the Ex-Con, you will laugh, cry, and even wince, but it is not entirely dark and sinister. You will also encounter a miraculous plot twist when Scott shares how he met an unusual convict who taught him how to escape the hell he created for himself.

Although his story is filled with drama and pain, it's also laced with hope and redemption-and it will touch every reader's life! Get ready for a true story you'll never forget!
