A Soldier's Redemption is a true, candid, no holds barred story of infamous former Gangster Disciple Lorenzo Louden, aka "Shorty G." His story immerses you in the notorious world of gangs, taking you on a bone-chilling ride through the streets of 1970s Chicago. While serving 17 years behind bars, his militant rule of the underworld expanded from the streets to the prisons until a spiritual encounter directed his journey out of the darkness onto a miraculous path of purpose and possibility.
"Lorenzo Louden was a big gangbanger-but by showing him humanity, we showed him a whole different way of life. I always knew that when he was released, it would be a do-or-die situation. He was going to have to make the break one hundred percent. And, he did it. He made a complete transformation."
~ Paula Mills, Former Correctional Counselor II, Logan Correctional Center
"What Lorenzo Louden has done with his life since he got out of prison is unbelievable. I'm so proud of him. Guys like him never had a chance. All I did was give him an inkling of a chance. A person is like a flower-they can't grow without water. Give the flower water, and it miraculously comes back to life."
~ Dan Sexton, Retired Assistant Warden of Operations, Logan Correctional Center
