Preface and Introduction: This part of the book is talking about why he wrote the book. Father G wanted to write about God, Jesus, compassion, kinship, redemption, and mercy. He worked at the Dolores Mission and Homeboy Industries. My favorite story was about Ramiro and his tattoo. I liked it because he didn't think about how it would affect him getting a job. I enjoyed how Father G removed it for him and got him a job about the bakery. If I was troubled like Ramiro, i would love someone helping me out.
