Best Selling Author Ellis Lucas, Author of The Potter and the Clay

February 29, 2020

Ellis Lucas and his wife, Peggy, detail his story of childhood anger, isolation, and drug use that led him on a path to a drug den which was the only place that would take him in.   It was there where his journey came to an abrupt end when a SWAT team came crashing in to the house.  Under arrest and in jail, the voice of Jesus in his head continually and persistently kept telling him that He loved Ellis, even while another voice kept telling him he was worthless and ineligible for being loved. Ellis’ book The Potter and the Clay tells the complete story, and his book Wanted offers encouragement for those who believe they are unwanted.
