The Potter and the Clay, by Ellis Lucas, is the story of how the author was in a deep dark hole. He did this to himself with years of addiction, a horrible car accident and almost dying in a house fire. His debts far exceeded his income, he spent time in prison, and his marriage was on the rocks. There was only one way to go from there and that was up. As he went to each of the people he had borrowed money from, asking for their forgiveness and making an honest effort to pay them back, even just a few dollars, he felt a weight being lifted from his shoulders. He went to each person he had hurt in some way and asked for forgiveness and they forgave him. He was truly amazed by the power of salvation and has turned his life around; he now has a new-found lease on life.

The Potter and the Clay by Ellis Lucas is the journey of a man in the depths of despair, climbing his way out of it to the triumph of forgiveness and embracing salvation. This book gave me hope in my situation, making amends and asking for forgiveness from those I have unknowingly hurt in some way. Our destinies are already written, but we as humans need to travel through the trials and the bumps in the road to the end, whether it is bitter or sweet. We do have the power to change the written destiny if we welcome the spirit of the Lord into our hearts, minds and souls. I recommend The Potter and the Clay for anyone who is struggling and needs a helping hand.

I have been a friend with Ellis for a year and know what was written in his book was a miracle by God changing Ellis from the inside out. God had a calling on his life but it took all the hurts from the past to bring him to a transformation by the blood of Jesus Christ. When he called out his cry was heard by the only one that can heal from the past. Now he reaches out to the lost because he knows what Christ can do for each one that is looking for hope! Christ has given Ellis a compassion for the lost and he is touching lives through the Outreaches and events that His Song Evangelism brings to the different cities. Blessings to Ellis and His Song Evangelism Ministries!


This book was a tremendous read for me. A reminder that God is always waiting for us. He never turns his back. This book tells a great story of a lost man trying to figure it all out by himself. It shows how Satan controls the things of this world but when we give it all to the Lord and completely trust his word, Satan's powers are rendered useless. Ellis is a true blessing to me. I can't wait for his next book and the next His Song Evangelism Ministries event. Read the book and get inspired.
