Power From Above: A Memoir by James Adams

"God answers prayers" is the simple yet powerful message of James Adams's autobiographical story about growing up in North Philadelphia in the 1960s and 70s.

Adams experienced his fair share of hard knocks, from growing up with an absentee father, to domestic abuse and drug abuse, to street fighting, gang wars, and tragedy. But he rose above it and always continued his "conversations" with God, who, as Adams never lets us forget, always answered his prayers. This book is stirring and uplifting.
