Read what Others are Saying!
The first time I read Tony’s story I could hardly believe what I was reading. I knew Tony had a history in the casino business, so I expected that his past was pretty rough, I would’ve never imagined he had lived the life he tells us about in his youth in Philadelphia. The Tony I know is not the Tony in the first half of this book; he is a living testament to 2 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation”. Tony is not a better man because of Jesus, he is a new man, and this is his story.
From Las Vegas To The Promise Land is a lot more than a story of one man finding his way and overcoming obstacles. It is a compelling and inspiring account of true courage and faith. Tony writes his account in a compelling and capturing format that invites you into his life and hits you on many emotional levels – At times fun and at times frustrating and scary… This is a must read for anyone faced with any type of adversity.
This book is a great read! I read it from cover to cover in just one sitting.
It is a true “rags to riches” story about a man that thought he had it all at times, but realized that earthly wealth has no comparison to eternal riches. And it is also about how counter-intuitive God’s wisdom is to worldly ideas and common sense.
Tony’s account of his journey lays bare his thought processes and the pain of failed relationships. Ironically, relationships are what ends up saving his life and his soul.
Meet tough, gritty, Tony Gambone. As real of a street tough Italian as they come. Follow his journey from the mean streets of Philly to the arms of his forever love. Learn how his transformation has brought him to a place of peace, contentment and service to others. A must read for anyone who thinks their life is not worthy or can never change.
