Item description for From Junk to Jesus: In the Blink of an Eye by John Michael Weber...
From Junk to Jesus takes a look at the journey from addiction to salvation from a firsthand perspective. A life can change in the blink of an eye, but sometimes it takes years to blink. This story is centered around one day in the life of an active addict and the insanity that is lived at the bottom of addiction. It explores what it took to get there and the love of God it took to get out. This true tale of redemption and salvation will give hope to those desperate hearts still caught in the grips of addiction and to the people in their lives who have to bear the brunt of their actions. There is hope, for as Paul says in Philippians 4: 13, aI can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.a

Powerful Apr 3, 2008
This is a very powerful testimony about being about as low as you can get then being saved by God. He probably made it short so anyone could read it but I wish it was longer because it really pulls you in. I highly recommend it for anyone with struggles of any kind or who just want hope in their life, or for anyone.
The truth hurts Dec 19, 2007
To write about something so personal, to open oneself up to scrutiny and judgement, to give livid detail to a life that few of us can understand - this is the message of a man with a gift who unflinchingly shares the dark depths of rock bottom and the salvation following. Brutal, yet tender; heartbreakingly sad, interspersed with ironic commentary...this is the work of a man on a mission to save others - if only but one person - from this despair. Cheers to you, Mike, for your bravery and the strength to pull yourself out of hell.
Insight into drug addiction Nov 20, 2007
For most of us the world of drug addiction and homelessness is a mystery. When we see people on the street with a sign we can only wonder what their lives are like. With this book Mike Weber reveals the mystery for everyone to see what it is like to live like that. We get to see not only what those people do but what they think as they go through the day. It brings them into focus as real people with families and things that matter to them. It makes their situation all the more painful so when he overcomes that life it is all the more powerful. I was especially surprised by the poetry and how good and touching it was. It was not something that I expected to find in a book about drug addiction. This book was wonderful to read and when it was over I just wished there were more chapters. I would recommend this book to everyone whether they are just curious about the life or if they are trapped in the life of an addict and want to see that there is hope. A terrific book!
An outstanding book...a rivoting read Nov 14, 2007
John Michael Weber has done a stellar job in writing this book. He is one of the first people writing about additions to reveal that additions are often about pain, not partying. He did it well.
Two words that describe his writing are HONESTY and CLARITY. He doesn't smooth over the tough parts, and while his book does contain humor, it is written very seriously. He means what he says.
The chapters are short, so, in theory, one could read it a little at a time. I say, in theory, because once I started reading, I couldn't put it down. I will say, that in spite of the short chapters, I would save this book for times when you can give it your complete attention.
Thank you, John Michael Weber, for sharing your story with us. I hope it gets shared with many, and pray for your continued success.
Review Sep 15, 2007
I personally think this is a great book, it will help families of drug addicts to understand the thoughts and struggles of a person with a drug and alcohol problem,and also help people going through their own battle, it is a great idea and takes alot of courage for my dad to write this book, revealing his own hard past in hopes that his book will help someone who might feel they don't have any hope. I'm very proud of my dad and enjoyed the book especially the parts about me ; )
