Overview

Fifteen years in the making, The Love of a Father and the Journey of His Prodigal Son is more than a linear recount of life's highs and lows. In his debut memoir, author Marcus Clapper captivates readers with his salvation story, which eventually leads to his spiritual rebirth. Raised by devout Christian parents, Clapper always knew God was present, but never fully understood His presence for himself; only through the experience of his parents. With limited knowledge of God and seeking a life gratifying to himself, Clapper embarked on his own life's path only to become enthralled in addiction, crime, and advertent malfeasances. Blind to the light and hope within himself, Clapper was broken and ashamed believing his mistakes were unforgivable. Fearful, insecure, and depressed, he never believed love, joy, and peace were possible in his life. He was facing a dismal future rife with monotony, addiction, and solitary confinement. Miraculously, he survived this calamitous and murky time in his life where he slit relationships, risked his health and freedom, hurt loved ones, dented lives and livelihoods, and suffered from addiction. For years, he wrestled with, and was tormented by, the belief that he will never be forgiven or given the opportunity to make amends-until he obliged an unlikely request from an unlikely requestor. In The Love of a Father and the Journey of His Prodigal Son, Clapper's life's story is a testament of God's mercy, grace, forgiveness, and freedom-all of which are also extended to you. Regardless of your mistakes, you can begin anew-today.

About the Author

Marcus is a loving and dedicated husband, father, son and brother. His love for his family is surpassed only by his love for God. He wears many hats, but his most treasured and important role is being a stay-at-home father and husband. He has made many mistakes in his life, some of which led to being arrested multiple times. These mistakes almost cost him his life, future, and family. Miraculously, he was given a second chance and has chosen to share his story in the hopes that it touches the lives of others no matter what they have done or what they are going through. His life and testimony prove that God can use ordinary people to do extraordinary things-if only we let Him.
