The press called Martin's actions a "crime spree." Already convicted of armed robbery, Martin was facing the death penalty. In less than two weeks the jury would decide his fate.

Walking Through the Valley of the Shadows of Death Book Description :

If you have ever played an organized sport, you know that to beat your opponent, you not only need to have a good team and proven skills - you also need a game plan or strategy BEFORE you enter the game. The same is true in the "game of life" - especially with regards to those situations that look like they could ruin you financially, emotionally, physically, or spiritually.

This book offers a "game plan" in this area of preparing yourself for life-threatening, life-changing situations. Using these principles, God has blessed me to overcome some unsurmountable obstacles: ...
