Day 1: BLOG TOUR - Running Scared Blog Tour w/Robert Leon Davis

About the Author

Robert Leon Davis was a respected police officer in New Orleans, who became involved in crime and fled arrest, living rough in the backwoods of America and Canada for over two decades before handing himself in. He now has an extensive speaking and teaching ministry. 

About the Book

Robert Leon Davis was a street kid from a tough community. Raised on the brink of poverty, he and his siblings often went hungry, but with the help of a family in the neighborhood, he beat the odds and studied criminal law at Loyola University and joined the New Orleans police department in 1975.

He began his career with aspirations of being a great cop, but before long he was exposed to a darker side of law enforcement. While partnered with a veteran, Davis first witnessed an officer violating the very laws he had vowed to uphold–and he shared in his crime. One compromise led to another, and Davis soon was caught and faced a substantial prison term. Cops in prison don’t last long. He fled.

Davis found himself a fugitive, living off the land in remote forests in the United States and Canada to elude capture. His church upbringing was abandoned in anger. For over twenty years he hid, becoming an expert survivalist. He might still be running, but through a stranger’s prayer the angry atheist realized he was weary of hiding. Slowly he yielded his life to God and eventually gave himself in. But when the New Orleans DA dusted off his file, what would his sentence be?

Today, Robert Davis is a committed Christian and motivational speaker. He uses his extraordinary experiences to share his message 
of hope and redemption to both adults and children.

RUNNING SCARED by Robert Leon Davis encompasses the human experience and the spiritual essence in a profound way.  The author tells a story of the complicated characteristics of being human and how the pitfalls that occur, through living life, can cause a straight path to veer off onto a dangerous and devastating one.     

Robert Leon Davis is able to capture his life with a raw interpretation that is clear, precise, and easy to understand. Some of his adventures seem to be farfetched at times, but his writing style enables one to picture the situation that he describes. He is able to keep the reader interested in what happens next and wonder what he will do.

RUNNING SCARED is a story of sinful acts and the consequences that the innocent are subjected to when sin is overwhelming.  The book details how opening one up to the path of sin can be ongoing if the sinner does not reach out to God for help. Robert Leon Davis uses his spiritual gift of witnessing on the evils of sin through his messages to different groups and gives simple advice on how to turn sin into triumph if one just has faith in God and keeps God in their life.  This novel is highly recommended reading and will keep you interested to the end.
