Known for his 44" leap, Reiser could do amazing things on the basketball court. But when an injury and a clash with his college coach derailed his career, he thought he'd be just another washed-up playground legend---until he met the real Jesus! His inspirational story will transform the way you see God, Scripture, and prayer!
One of the greatest high school basketball players to ever play in New York City, there was no way Bill Rieser wasn't going to make it in the NBA. He could do things on a basketball court no one else could--and that's why they called him "White Jesus." But after a serious knee injury and clashes with his college coach derailed his career, Bill descended into a self-destructive lifestyle of drinking, drug abuse, and womanizing. He was going to be just another washed-up playground legend--until he encountered Jesus Christ and became something far more.
Once known for his 44-inch leap, Rieser is still looking up these days and his vertical leap goes higher than he could ever have imagined. So if you're looking for something that will get you to that new level of trust and closeness with God you're yearning for, this book is your ticket! Bill's infectious faith will change the way you view God, His power, His Word, and prayer.
BILL RIESER grew up in East Harlem, New York where he was considered a legend on the streets and basketball courts of New York City. His powerful slam dunk repertoire earned him the nickname 'White Jesus' and destined him for stardom in the NBA. But injuries in college and a lifestyle of excess and anger brought him to the brink of personal and professional destruction. Through the incredible, unconditional love of his wife, Carolynn and the faithful prayers of her church he found and accepted the Lord as his Savior. Bill is the author of They Called Me White Jesus, and is currently the Director of Recovery Ministries at Heartland Community Church in Rockford, Illinois. He and Carolynn have been married for 25 years and live in Rockford. They have one daughter.
