Discover hope as you see redemption even in the darkest circumstances. Ronald Olivier shares his dramatic and powerful story of how a young man sentenced to life without parole miraculously found faith, forgiveness, redemption, and restoration.

As a teenager Ronald Olivier ran wild in the streets of New Orleans, selling drugs, stealing cars, and finally killing someone on Christmas Day 1991. Ron was sentenced to life in prison without parole and was incarcerated for nearly three decades. Finally, after being locked up for 27 summers at the notorious Louisiana State Penitentiary--known as Angola--Ron was miraculously released in 2018.

But what led to this amazing transformation and newfound freedom?

27 Summers recounts Ron's journey of redemption and how even through the agony of solitary confinement and multiple transfers into increasingly dangerous prison environments, Ron kept seeking God for healing and hope. Remarkably, he became the director of chaplains at Mississippi State Penitentiary. Today, Ron loves to combat hopelessness, wherever he finds it, by saying, 'Don't tell me what God can't do!' 

As you read 27 Summers you will:

- Gain a new perspective on overcoming adversity: Learn new insights about faith and patience from a man who spent almost three decades in a cruel and violent environment.
- Explore the power of faith in dark times: Discover how faith can be a guiding light, offering hope and strength when you need it most.
- Understand the true meaning of forgiveness: Be encouraged to find grace and forgiveness to overcome the pain of your past.
- Find the hope you need for trying times: Take heart and be inspired as you witness the reality that God can redeem and restore anyone.


In 27 Summers you will find hope, redemption, and the power of forgiveness. Ron's inspiring story brilliantly displays God's power to transform individuals, families, and communities, reminding us that there truly is nothing God can't do.
