Rod’s story is different… It demonstrates that addiction can happen to anybody. It’s an inspiring read and I totally recommend it to you. You will not be disappointed.

Barry Woodward, Author of ‘Once an Addict’

This book is refreshingly honest; it speaks of a broken young man who found healing in Christ, and a future. You will be inspired.

Rt Revd Dr David E Carr, Senior Pastor, Renewal Christian Centre

An honest and gritty story… the Real Deal reveals how God’s love, grace and true forgiveness turn not only Rod’s life around, but also some of the lives of his long-time accomplices. Altogether, a mighty powerful read.

John Kirkby, International Director, Christians Against Poverty

The Real Deal is about addiction, it is about “the sin that so easily entangles” and its about hope and the power of God to triumph in seemingly hopeless situations.

This is a must read book for anyone suffering from addiction or who has a loved one suffering from this disease. Its a grippingly honest story of a modern day prodigal.

Ian Aitken, Director of The Lighthouse Foundation

Heartwarming and hope-fuelling, this authentic, gritty book will inform and enthral, but more than that, will nudge us to our own journeys with the Lord Jesus.

Jeff Lucas, Author, Speaker, Broadcaster
