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!
Bronson Haley lived life so fast—one filled with crime, violence, alcohol, and conducting business with the Mexican drug mafia—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.
After a miraculous and well-publicized conversion to Christianity, Bronson ended up in an affair with a deacon’s wife in the mega church he was saved in. That’s when Bronson committed what he describes as spiritual suicide—what takes place after a fallen Christian or sinner believes they have made decisions that place them beyond the boundaries of redemption and reconciliation with God.
Not only did he turn back to his old way of life, but he took his sin to exponential heights with drugs, violence, and an increase in lawlessness with his fellow millennial rebels.
In his book The Depth of Grace: Finding Hope at Rock Bottom, 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.
After his public and disgraceful failure with God, Bronson isolated himself with the Bible for three years and endured terrible suffering. What he found is breathtaking and will no doubt shake up the religious institution and the world of rebels, as the true love of the resurrected Jesus comes to light.
In addition to sharing his personal story of a painful childhood, a tumultuous lifestyle, and finding Jesus a few different times as a disgraced millennial himself, Bronson includes “Rest Stops” throughout his book. These Bible teachings contain raw revelations of grace that penetrate deep enough into the hearts of today’s sinners to capture their souls. The Rest Stop chapters dig deep into the Word, but the content does not beat down the reader, and instead lifts them up to the Lord Jesus, even as a spotless virgin bride presented to her King.
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.
