Finding Heaven in the Dark, William L. Ingram

A cross country hitchhiking trek is the backdrop of this personal odyssey of the 17 year old William L. Ingram, the author of Finding Heaven In The Dark. The tumultuous 1960s themes of race relations, political turmoil, assassinations, and the Vietnam War also play major roles as Mr. Ingram recounts the events surrounding his self-destructive rebellion and desertion from the Marine Corps.
William’s dark journey began with his birth to a young, Black American, unwed mother in 1949, and takes the reader on a spiritual journey of a fugitive living in a Los Angeles skid row rescue mission. What happens next is both insightful and truly compelling. The author’s search for a purposeful life view and identity is inspiring and will resonate with anyone who has questioned the deeper meaning of life.
This Christ centered spiritual tale of loss and redemption could read like a story from the Bible, but it is William Ingram’s testimony to his love of the life affirming principals of the “Be Still and Know” Christian Meditation that guided him through his Bright Passage to the shores of Heaven.
Finding Heaven in the Dark is a moving, poignant and inspiring story courtesy of the author William L. Ingram who throughout his book narrates the story of his life and what the readers reads is eye-opening as well as incredibly moving. The journey the reader is taken on is an emotional, sometimes upsetting but inspiring one that will move and touch its readers from start to finish. Finding Heaven in the Dark is a unique book because it is a memoir that is also a Christian devotional/meditation book and the combination is beautiful and definitely a book every reader should have the pleasure of reading.
Finding Heaven in the Dark is an enlightening, honest and incredible spiritual memoir book courtesy of an exceptional man. William’s tale is harrowing, poignant and beautiful and he will take his readers on the journey of his life and his journey through 1960’s America as well as his journey with God. The result of this book is poignant as well as inspiring and will inspire many readers and so I have to implore everybody to read this sensational book as you will not regret it.
In Finding Heaven in the Dark, the reader will follow William from his past all the way through to present and along the way William will take his readers through the many poignant moments in his life and the moments that shaped his life forever. William’s journey at times is tough and he is brutally honest about all that he experienced and went through; however it is also an inspiring book in which the reader will follow William as he grows closer to God through meditation and he shares all of this and more in his incredible book – Finding Heaven in the Dark.
William L. Ingram’s story is one of the most shocking but inspirational stories I have ever read or even heard of. William’s journey was so drastic and although the events throughout this book are of a hard-hitting nature, the primary feeling associated with this book is inspiration as William’s courage and determination to pursue God and overcome his circumstances is truly beautiful. William’s story I believe will relate to many readers, even though the core themes at the heart of this book are religious. Although Finding Heaven in the Dark is a religious book about faith, it is still a book that is accessible to every person because every human has experienced, on some kind of level what William has.
William’s story is incredible, it is, of course, harrowing, especially when he informs the reader of his decline and the many horrendous things he experienced but when William takes the reader beyond this and to the present and his successes, the reader can’t help but think that this is an incredibly inspirational tale.
William is an incredible man for many reasons but one of the reasons he is so wonderful is because he brazenly shares his story to help readers and to speak his truth. I adore how William did not hold back on the details of hardships, he poignantly writes about all the hardships he has endured and it makes for profound reading. The reader won’t be able to not admire William for all that he has been through and all that he has accomplished; William truly is an inspirational man and I adored his tale.
Overall Finding Heaven in the Dark is an incredibly inspirational and honest tale. It takes a lot for a person to be so honest and to tell their tale so I admire William for doing just this and sharing his tale. As Finding Heaven in the Dark is one of the most inspirational tales I have ever read, I have no choice but to award this incredible book a dazzling five stars as it truly deserves it!
