Publisher's Description

“Riveting.” —Publishers Weekly

God can—and will—change anything.

In the early 1960s, Ron Archer was born to an eighteen-year-old single mother in the inner city of Cleveland. The result of an unexpected and unwanted pregnancy, he was nearly aborted by those who wanted to take advantage of his mother. Ron was abused by a babysitter, teased unmercifully by classmates for his stuttering, and abandoned by an unloving stepfather. At age ten, he put a loaded snub-nosed revolver to his head and pulled the trigger.

The gun didn’t fire.

With the help of a heroic teacher who introduced him to the Bible, Ron discovered Jesus Christ and finally found his voice. Now a celebrated public speaker, he reaches out to others who are in despair, sharing the hope that can only come from God.

In What Belief Can Do, you, too, can discover how God can transform your pain into power—and your tragedy into triumph

Editorial Reviews

In his gritty debut, inspirational speaker Archer shares the story of his hardscrabble childhood and how it brought him to God’s grace. Born in 1963 in Cleveland, Ohio, Archer faced a litany of obstacles growing up: his teenage former prostitute mother had attempted to abort him; his home life is rife with abuse; he is sexually abused by a neighbor; and classmates ridicule him for his stutter. At the age of 10, he unsuccessfully attempts suicide. But a teacher changes the trajectory of Archer’s life by helping him master the spoken word—and find faith in God. With his newfound sense of identity, purpose, and community, 16-year-old Archer becomes a part-time preacher at Good Shepherd Baptist Church in Cleveland, where he helps lead his sister and mother to faith. Archer, who is African-American, then becomes senior class president and valedictorian of his 98% white private school. Peppered with observations on the cycle of poverty and racial prejudice—and how he overcame both—Archer’s memoir is riveting, instructive, and will appeal to Christian readers looking for an inspirational story.
