“People are not garbage. We need to see people through the eyes of Jesus rather than the eyes of their crime.”

Within the pages of Byron Elsey’s new book, Heart And Soul ($14.99, paperback, 978-1-61996-724-3; $22.99, hardcover, 978-1-61996-725-0; $7.49, e-book, 978-1-61996-726-7), the author makes it clear that to deter crime, one must target the source. Elsey has done what few have ventured to attempt, which is to truly connect to criminals and their families. This book exemplifies how to go about improving the community, which, in turn, prevents crime.
“There is hope for anyone. I see all people created by God, part of the family of man, with human emotions, some mother’s son or daughter and my responsibility,” states the author. “People are not garbage. We need to see people through the eyes of Jesus rather than the eyes of their crime.”
Dr. Elsey has experience working with hundreds of criminals and their families as a chaplain for over twenty-five years. The author has served in juvenile and adult correctional institutions, as well as working on the mean streets of his city. He knows what it is to roll out of bed at 3:00 a.m. to help someone deal with a drug, crime or violence problem.
