FINDING HOPE AT ROCK BOTTOM
From street fights and seances to drunken parties and drug runs...
About the Book
Fasten your seat belts for a wild ride that stretches from Louisiana and Colorado to Florida and Mexico—and all the way into the arms of Jesus Christ! Through this amazing story, you’ll see that God's grace is always deep enough to reach us in our darkest hour if we hold on to Him and His Word!
J. Bronson Haley lived life so fast that he’d sometimes wake up in a jail cell without having a clue as to how he got there. As one of the most feared street fighters in Shreveport, Louisiana, Bronson had a reputation that preceded him—and usually made people get out of his way.
But in spite of the breakneck life that he lived—and the tough childhood he’d endured—Bronson discovered Someone strong and loving enough to pull him out of the deep hole he’d dug for himself: Jesus Christ. Now, in The Depth of Grace, Bronson shares the highlights—and lowlights—of his life…and he pulls no punches.
All the raw, gritty details are here, showing how Bronson failed miserably time and again. Even more, though, Bronson shares the story of how, through Jesus Christ, he found hope and overcame his sin and struggles by the grace of God and the power of His Word.
And as a bonus, Bronson offers you “Rest Stops” along the way—bits of what Bronson has learned from God’s Word and how he found out that the heroes of the Bible were just as human, sinful, sometimes without hope, and in need of God’s grace as we are today.
Written by J. Bronson Haley.

I very highly admire and respect author Bronson Haley for telling his story. My prayer is that many people out there that are in somewhat the same situation as Haley will read this book, and find out that there is hope, no matter how difficult their situation is. God loves us and He does care for us more than we know. And even in the times He doesn’t seem real, He is definitely real, and willing to change our life when we call on Him.
This story is a true tale offered by a man who saw the bottom of life and ended up finding the one person who could help him through the pain and pull himself up – out of the nightmare he was living. This was not only an intriguing story about his life and the life lessons learned, but also a beautiful tribute to the Son who is forever trying to help us not lose our way.
Mr. Haley tells it like it is. The truthful account of his life in many different locations, brings Shreveport, Louisiana to the forefront. It is in this gritty town that readers are taken inside the cruel, frightening, sometimes vicious world of a street-fighter. Mr. Haley was one of those people who you would cross to the other side of the street to avoid, simply because a part of you was scared to death of what he would do if you were on his bad side. The cold bars on the jail cell clanged at times, and there were even moments when Mr. Haley had no idea how he got arrested in the first place. This is a man who lived a life wrapped around utilizing and relying on addictions in order to find some kind of happiness in the haze.
It took losing a very dear friend for him to come to terms with the fact the he had a story to share with the world, and that it may not be too late to save others. He began to make changes in his life and live his life for God. He was a walking testimony of how amazing God’s grace really is and how there is no sin too great for God’s forgiveness. Between the chapters that Bronson shares his life experiences and all of the dark places he found himself in along the way, he includes “Rest Stops,” chapters integrated throughout the book that share his favorite stories and scriptures from the Bible and how they applied to his life and his situation personally.
