A Hooligan Finds The Cure
A Compelling Story of Survival and Salvation
In this dramatic work, Michael LeBus shares an incredible psychological and spiritual journey from a painful childhood and drug-centered adolescence in California, to his tumultuous attempts as a young adult to establish a family and career in Missouri, and on to a challenging environment during two decades in a state prison system, without self pity or casting blame, he candidly tells a very human story, including hisremarkable change from a person who rejected God to one who sees God as the answer to all life’s difficult questions. Reverend LeBus says that his principal motive in writing was to assure others that there is a cure, “no matter who they are or what has happened in their lives.” To carry out this purpose, he offers us a series of emotionally charged episodes that capture our attention and ultimately argue the validity of his claim.
