New book "The Minister Who Turned Gangster!" from Page Publishing Author Sam Gilbert is the story of a boy born into a family that made a name for itself through its Christian evangelism. Yet his rebellious spirit, distrust of the education system, and his keen ability to recognize that, in spite of God’s existence, something was very amiss with his creation when it came to race relations, led him down the path to self-destruction.

This collection of essays follows Sam as he makes revelations about the current and past conditions of Black people in America.

Sam Gilbert, a former minister, gangster, and a deeply spiritual soul, has completed his first book "The Minister Who Turned Gangster!", a gripping and potent journey through the trials and tribulations of a soul torn in two radically different moral directions.

"In 1946 at five years-old I was the star of the Gilbert Gospel Preachers and Singers touring the country with the biggest names in gospel music. When I was 12 years old my fame was gone and my family moved to Brooklyn, New York. By 1960 I was selling drugs and committing armed robbery. This is my story."

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Sam Gilbert’s poignant tale is the story of a life of greed and grace, vice and virtue, revelry and redemption.
