The Other Side of Famous While reading this book I didn't want to put it down but I had to; to sit and Ponder the phrases that I had just read. Jeff takes you to the gates of hell right along beside him and shows you how being a third-generation musician and performer came back to his heart and through this Jesus saved his soul . Even though this book talks about Jeff's past; it's really to show you the mercy of Jesus Christ our Lord and savior When you see Jeff perform his gospel songs or see him talking about his book he looks exactly like the man he used to be. He wears sleeveless shirts so that you can see the tats that tell you all about the man he used to be. The other side of famous also tells the story of his youth when he was infamous. You and or someone you know are the reason Jeff wrote This Book he did not want to tell these things about his past he even chose not to Varnish the ugly truth so it would shine a little brighter but understood that God needed him to tell the whole truth so that others like Jeff when he was head deep in hell could understand the infinite mercy of Jesus Christ and find their way back home like he did.
