  If you can read the true stories in S Street Rising and not cry through some chapters and feel nauseous in others, you’re a stronger person than I am. So, you may reasonably ask, why subject oneself to these graphic descriptions of addiction, violence, and poverty? My response is that breaking through all the tales of bleak despair are tender moments of grace and reconciliation and those inspire me to say, “I want to be part of redemption stories like that.” Readers willing to follow Castaneda into the darkness discover how family, faith, and addiction recovery programs can and do support junkies struggling to break free from whatever is their drug of choice. We are also introduced to a plucky little church start-up, New Community Church, which painstakingly helps reclaim the neighborhood that had become a war-zone. I want to be a part of a church that can do that. I won’t give away the story’s ending but here’s a hint: think Easter.
