A Navy Seal's Unlikely Journey from the Throne of Africa, to the Streets of the Bronx, to Defying All Odds
$19.49
($26.99)

What are the odds? Statistics tell us that African American males growing up in a single-parent household are nine times more likely to drop out of high school and twenty times more likely to end up in prison than any other demographic. But what would it take for one young man not only to rise above those statistics but also become a celebrated Navy SEAL, an acclaimed Hollywood actor, and a deep man of faith?

For Remi Adeleke--whose life journey has been one of many complicated twists and turns--there's only one answer: God. Through times of intense struggle, pressure, and temptation, Remi's inspiring story is one of following God's voice, even when it didn't make sense, overcoming the odds, and ultimately experiencing true personal transformation.

In Transformed, Remi takes readers back to stories from his childhood as Nigerian royalty, to losing his father early in life and being raised by a single mother in the Bronx, to illegal activities as a young man that threatened to derail his future. From troubled teen to Navy SEAL, this incredibly popular up-and-coming actor has beaten the odds at every turn. Remi explores the moments of redemption and grace that saved him and how, through finding faith in Christ, he turned to the one Father he'd been searching for all along.
