REACHING YOUR ADDICTED LOVED ONE
Answers to your toughest questions - without pulling punches
Without pulling punches or promising easy answers, Victor provides wisdom and expertise that can lead you toward freedom. God did not create your loved one to be an addict or a loser. On the contrary, God created him or her for a better life. Although, for the moment, it may seem like you are losing your loved one, they still have a God-given destiny and a purpose. No matter how bad the picture may look now, there is always hope.
Victor is the true story of Victor Torres, who moved with his family from their native Puerto Rico to Brooklyn, New York, in search of a better life. Their American dream, however, quickly faded into a nightmare when young Victor was introduced to gang life on the New York streets. Within a few years, teenage Victor had set up a lucrative drug-trafficking business in an attempt to help his financially struggling family. But Victor quickly became enslaved by his own drug addiction, as his parents, Manuel and Lila, desperately searched to find a way to help their son. Through the persistent prayers of Victor's mother and the ministry of David Wilkerson, Victor's parents realized that a faith-based rehabilitation program was their last chance to rescue their son. After a series of personal tragedies, Victor experienced a life-altering encounter with the Lord that changed everything. In this companion book to the award-winning movie of the same name, Victor Torres himself takes you through his journey, from tragedy to triumph, a living example of the power of redemptive freedom found only in Christ.
“Victor” is a classic Christian book that has influenced countless lives for Christ. Victor Torres is an excellent minister of the word of God. He is a living miracle that confirms the power of the Holy Spirit in the world today. I recommend this book for those who need hope and spiritual encounter with God in his life.”
