A former mob member comes to Christ in this riveting book.
-Publisher

Experience the riveting true story that has inspired and Touched Hearts around the World. Author R.K. Jensen has written a graphic first-hand account of growing up in a family deeply involved in the mob. R.K's dad is a founding member of the Mob and lived on the run from the F.B.I. for drug smuggling, bank robberies, and counterfeiting money. R.K. and his older brother Bob suffered severe child abuse in the 1960's and '70's, and thereafter joined a Los Angeles area street gang. Bob became an Assassin for the Mafia, ended up in and out of jail, and became the target of a mafia hit as a result. As a youth R.K. was attacked by adult gang members and left to die, yet miraculously survived through a personal encounter with Jesus Christ. Through many surgeries, a coma, and insurmountable obstacles, R.K. experienced a series of divine miracles, breaking down the barriers to a life filled with meaning and purpose. R.K. Jensen received the U.S. Army's Commanding General's Award of Merit for his work with youth. R.K. Jensen is a Speaker, Author, Actor, an award winning Artist, and a former Publisher with Freedom Communications. His story has aired world-wide on the radio, and he has been the guest of Youth Direct, Focus on the Family, New Life Church, Teen Challenge, Promise Keepers, juvenile halls, and prisons. As an actor R.K. has appeared several times on NBC's The History Channel. R.K and his wife are the proud parents of three wonderful children, a Basset Hound puppy named Isabelle, and a Dachshund named Theodore. Publishers Commentary Aaron Communications III "A powerful story well told of struggle, defeat, & ultimate triumph. This generation's New biography of a different type of'Switchblade' while still under the shadow of the same Old Rugged Cross." Dennis Mansfield, CBS TV Commentator; State Director, Promise Keepers "Mr. Jensen, I served in the Marine Corp. and I've seen and been through some terrible things. As a POW (Prisoner of War) in Iran I learned how to truly hate people. I would like to tell you that your book, Left for Dead - Faith, Family, & the Mob, has touched something inside me I didn't believe was there. Your book has made me want a relationship with God." R.D.P., Retired United States Marine "See how the most hopeless trials can be turned to Gold. Definitely a book that you cannot put down from page one." Pastor Brad Ormonde, Harvest Christian Fellowship (Calvary Chapel - Riverside) "God can have a profound effect on people from all walks of life.God does not turn His back on anyone, not even gang bangers." Lisa Taylor-Austin, MS Ed., NCC, LPC, Forensic Gang Expert Witness "R.K.'s story goes beyond mere survival of severe child abuse, parental neglect, and addiction, his story is an inspiration to us all and sheds great insight for professionals and others who work with today's at-risk youth." Kathy Silbert-Sanders, Ph.D., L.C.S.W., Psychiatric Social Worker "Kids and teens will really be inspired by this book. This amazing story shows how your surroundings don't create who you are. Dreams are not just for those with a "fairy-tale" life, but also for kids who grow up hurting." Erin Sanders, Professional Teen Actress, Hollywood, CA
