Bob Turney was raised on a notorious housing estate in South London, England. At age 15 he was consigned to the scrap heap by an education system that labelled him 'educationally subnormal'. Engulfed by a life of crime from an early age, he graduated to the fringes of organized crime and spent over 20 years drifting in and out of prisons and institutions. Today Bob's life is completely different. As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, he has held many callings including Ward Mission Leader, Stake Sunday School President - and has served in an Elders' Quorum Presidency, as High Priest Group Leader and on the High Council in three Bishoprics. Working within the UK Criminal Justice System and frequently with difficult and damaged people, Bob Turney has gained a unique reputation as someone who has 'crossed over the tracks', triumphed against huge odds and become an inspiration to other people looking to do the same. Building on three earlier books, he now tells of the role that faith has played in his life and how he and his wife Sue enjoy the benefits that flow from their Temple marriage, including five children, two grandchildren - and counting!
