The streets knew him as Gorgeous Dre in the Hughes Brothers’ documentary, American Pimp. The Federal correctional institute knew him as number 33599-048. Now as Andre Taylor, he shares his experiences and observations, as he takes you on an expedition through the fog of hidden truths that circle, on the road to paradise. The antidote to cure man’s blindness to God’s Providence that Taylor speaks of was created through struggle and suffering. But both struggle and suffering are created by time’s delay to bring forth a happy ending and happy endings, we learn, are only perceptions that change as your outer layer is stripped, piece-by-piece in the process, as you walk the road to paradise. You will never see God in the same way again, but you will see Him. This book can give you the answer to what you always wanted to know: Is God real? Is He alive? Does He talk to man? Even though dim is the light on the actions of God’s Hand, André Taylor’s treatise on his walk with God, illuminates that shadow.
