From Drug Lord to Redemption – Pastor Dimas Salaberrios | Episode 67



On the streets of New York, darkness and violence reigned. Dimas “Daylight” Salaberrios began selling drugs when he was eleven years old, and by sixteen 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.

Today I have the privilege of speaking with former drug lord Dimas Salaberrios about his book STREET GOD, the true story of his 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 others’ lives depending on it.

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.
