Author Biography

J. Bronson Haley has walked through the valleys and has overcome by the grace of God and the power of His Word. As the most well-known street fighter, bar-hopping party animal, and backslidden world-class screw-up in the Shreveport/Bossier, Louisiana, metropolitan area—not to mention having done business with the Mexican mafia—Bronson understands the deepest of struggles and knows firsthand that it is often times difficult for those who have failed miserably to listen to a man of God who does not understand them. As Bronson says, “My main strength is offering a personal testimony of God’s unfailing grace to a sinner like me, who found hope, new life and the richest blessings in Him—which is one reason why I wanted to write this book and be able to put it into people’s hands, so they can read just how amazing God’s grace is.”

Now, still discovering the depth of God’s grace each day, Bronson works in the petroleum industry in the western U.S. Away from his job, Bronson loves going to church, sharing the gospel grace, hope, and truth with others, and spending time with his wife and their children.

Reviewed by Joy Hannabass for Readers' Favorite

Hitting rock bottom was not just another phrase for author J. Bronson Haley; for him it was a reality. Living life in the fast lane, a most feared reputation of a street fighter and spending time in jail gave Haley a reputation that caused people to stay clear of him. But then one day Haley found Someone who changed his life forever, Jesus Christ. Jesus delivered Bronson from the deep hole he’d dug for himself. And his story is written in his book, "The Depth of Grace". This is a story, and a testimony of how God can take a life that is seemingly doomed and make something wonderful out of it. Bronson doesn’t sugarcoat his story by any means; he is totally honest about his life before he ask Jesus in. His deep bondage to sin gripped his life and wouldn’t let go, no matter how hard he tried. The things Haley did, the situations he tells of in this book, are heart wrenching, because of the way he was ruining his own life. But the amazing thing is, none of that matters to God. This story shows just who God is, and that He is in control, not matter the situation, and that He can do anything, just because He is God. This would make an awesome Bible study because the author gives 'rest stops' chapters throughout the book to give the Biblical viewpoint of what he is telling.

I very highly admire and respect author Bronson Haley for telling his story. My prayer is that many people out there that are in somewhat the same situation as Haley will read this book, and find out that there is hope, no matter how difficult their situation is. God loves us and He does care for us more than we know. And even in the times He doesn’t seem real, He is definitely real, and willing to change our life when we call on Him.
