Murder, suicide, drug raids,—through it all—God was there.And so was police chaplain, Martin Weber.

These true stories of victims and criminals expose a side of life that most of us are fortunate to never experience. But the pain of crime and sin is very real and very personal. Go along with Chaplain Weber as he stands with others in their greatest times of need. You will meet:

  • A murderer who confesses his crime—with the blood still on his hands.
  • A man dying from Aids—who asked for anointing and wanted to go home to his Adventist family.
  • A woman whose husband dropped dead—while they were arguing.
  • A young man traumatized by seeing his family killed—in front of his own eyes.

We are all sinners. We need a refuge, a place of grace to which we can escape. Christianity has much to say about the historic Jesus on the streets of long-ago Galilee. Adventists look forward to the Second Coming of Christ and the new heavens and the New Earth. But we need Jesus now!

The Bible offers a much-overlooked solution. Between the first-century Savior and our everlasting Lord, Jesus is an always present help in times of trouble. “Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession.” (Hebrews 4:14).

Think you know someone beyond hope? Think again. In the midst of our pain, God is always there.
