Summary

His street name was Daylight. But he was a nightmare. On the streets of New York, darkness and violence reigned. Dimas "Daylight" Salaberrios began selling drugs when he was 11 years old, and by 16 he had served his first stint at the notorious Rikers Island prison. Dimas saw only one way to survive: by reigning over the streets. He would be the richest, most powerful ruler in the hood...or die trying.

Street God is the true story of one man's dangerous journey through the underworld of crime, drugs, and almost certain death. It was an encounter with the real God that saved his life - and then made it even more dangerous. Because that God sent Dimas back down the darkest streets he'd ever known - with other lives depending on it. And Dimas had to ask the question: How far am I prepared to go?

A dramatic, compelling memoir full of twists and turns, Street God delves deep into a world from which few ever emerge - and shows how a single spark of light can illuminate even the darkest existence.

Street God

Powerful. Liberating. I am so thankful and encouraged. I’m one of those who is more frustrated from within the church not the streets.
This is a GREAT book; awesome narrator. I so appreciate the love of the mother; the transparency of his life and his sole commitment to Jesus Christ and the leading of the Holy Spirit. It is my prayer that this books gets into the hands of more millions.
Thank you Rev. for allowing the God of the streets to once again showed forth his great love and power.🙌🏾💞🙌🏾

excellent testimony!

what an insight into the world of the inner cities projects .
Dee's story reminded me of Nikki Cruze, I won't ruin the book for anyone, but it is a must listen.
I'm a a great Gramma who has never seen the inner city, and will now be praying for all the previous souls lost there.

A must read!

It was a good true story of a man's journey from a drug lord lifestyle to one that honours Jesus.
