“Running Scared” is the amazing story of Robert Leon Davis, a former officer on the New Orleans Police Force. Little by little, Robert yields to the callings of the shadier side of the police force and within four years finds himself on the wrong side of the law. Facing imprisonment, Robert escapes before he can be tried and becomes a fugitive for over twenty years. “Running Scared” takes readers on an unbelievable journey of survival, love and loss, betrayal and justice, and finally from faithlessness to belief. It’s a no-holds barred account of one man’s life that will shock and disturb you – right before it truly inspires you with the power of transformation.

The writing in “Running Scared” is phenomenal. While it is a captivating story that’s hard to top just by the nature of the subject matter, the author’s ability to tell this story is a gift in itself. Robert Leon Davis has a talent for storytelling – he is engaging and entertaining. So much so that I often felt like I was sitting in a room with him as he told his story to me directly. Robert is straightforward and direct. He doesn’t sugar-coat a single word and his openness and vulnerability is moving. It’s that ability to grab the reader that takes a good story and turns it into a great story, one you won’t soon forget. A word of warning: Don’t plan on doing anything else once you pick up this book – you will not be able to put it down!

I was on a roller-coaster of emotions from the very beginning. One moment I found myself applauding Robert for doing the right thing and resisting the dark side, and the next moment I was shaking my head thinking, “No, don’t go down that road!” When you think about the amount of time he spent on the run, you quickly realize his inner strength. He had Someone rooting for him all along – it just took him a while to realize it.

I highly recommend “Running Scared” by Robert Leon Davis. It’s a must-read passage that is a true testament of inspiration. Well done. ( )

reading this story by robert leon davis was like being on a personal interview with him. it felt like i was right there along side of him for the 22 years of his being a fugitive. this auto- biograpy proves that there is nothing that God can't forgive and there is no where that you can hide that He can't find you. what an inspiration for the thousands of us who have loved ones whom we have been praying for to be saved and thinking it's been so long and it will never happen. robert shows us that even the smartest, fastest and most cunning of us all is still no match for God.

I received this book as part of the early reviewers program. It was an interesting true story of one man who made some bad decisions early in life and ran away from his life and God. It tells of his adventures over the next 20+ years until he decides to quit running. It seems like the book was written to help young people not make the same mistakes the author made. An entertaining read. ( )

Running Scared held my interest throughout the book. His testimony shows that you cannot run or hide from God. Wherever you are , He is. This book was very hard to put down but had to as had to go to work. As soon as I got home I finished reading it. Robert was very honest in telling his story and I like that about it! ( )

'Running Scared' is a very interesting read.
This book is a prime example of the fact that when God wants to get your attention, He will get it!
You may deny that God exists. You may run far and long, but you cannot hide from God!
God has a Plan and a Purpose for everyone regardless of their background.
I would recommend this book to both believers and non-believers.
I enjoyed the messages he has at the end of the book that are addressed to specific groups of people. I like the fact that there are a few people left that will tell it like it is and not sugar coat everything in a misguided attempt to be Politically Correct. ( )
