Item description for Four Balls and Walking: Walking with Power and Peace by Richard R. Guerra...
At the tender age of eighteen Richard R. Guerra had been masquerading in the adult world as a bartender and beverage manager at an upscale resort. Richard led the life of a player with thoughts only of greed, lust, and power. One fateful night, against his will, Richard's world was turned upside down and he was made to know true power-the power of God. Richard Guerra knows how to tell a story and an amazing story he has to tell in Four Balls and Walking. Paralyzed in an accident when he was just a young man, Guerra thought his life was over. What he discovered was that his real life, his spiritual life, was just beginning. Guerra takes the reader along on his journey filled with laughter and tears and shows how, with God's help, he ultimately persevered through his darkest hours and triumphed over adversity. Alice Armstrong, columnist, copywriter

A Great Read May 5, 2009
Knowing the story ahead of time I opened the book with trepidation. Was it going to be too emotional, grief filled or even preachy? Much to my delight it was none of the above!! It was engrossing, engaging and an inspiration to read. I had a hard time putting it down. Congratulations Rich you sent the Word of God out among us with humble piety. Thank you for this wonderful look into your private struggles and your faith in God.
