Love of God Takes One Man on Journey from Convict to Pastor

Share Article

He is living proof that Jesus Christ is the answer to any situation. Berta Martinez's true story, Dangerous Dan (paperback, 978-1-60477-087-2), chronicles the life of her husband, who changed from a convict to a pastor six years after becoming saved.

When Danny Martinez allowed drugs and alcohol to rule his life, he found himself having to pull bigger crimes to support his habits--and these bigger crimes meant longer times in prison. It wasn't so much the crimes he got busted for on the outside; it was what he did on the inside that caused him to do 22 years behind bars. All he knew was drugs, crime, and prison--like a revolving door, it took him in the same circle year after year, until one day he discovered what he had been looking for his whole life. It was something no one dared talk to him about, but when Danny accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior, it changed his life forever. Berta Martinez's true story, Dangerous Dan (paperback, 978-1-60477-087-2), chronicles the life of her husband, who changed from a convict to a pastor six years after becoming saved.

Married to Danny for almost 30 years, Martinez watched him undergo an incredible metamorphosis due to the power Christ had upon his life, and she believes that if he can change, so can others, for all things are possible through Christ. "Many people have someone in their family [who is] on drugs or in prison," she says. "This book helps people to understand what these kind of people feel and go through."

A co-director with his wife of an outreach ministry called Project-Love for 23 years and of a men's home which was dedicated to helping men with life-controlling problems, Danny has made it his mission in life to help people with their physical and spiritual needs. Martinez attests to his miraculous change, crediting God with bringing it about: "Jesus Christ is the answer to any situation. Why? Because Danny, along with millions of other people, [is] living proof."
