"Son of Hope" (aka "Son Of Sam") Book Scheduled for September

David Berkowitz was a serial killer, terrorizing the streets of New York City during the late 1970's. His nickname came from a note, left at a crime scene, reading: "I am a monster. I am the Son of Sam." Involved in the occult, witchcraft and Satanism, he claimed that a dog ordered him to commit these killings. According to Berkowitz, "I am utterly convinced that something satanic had entered into my mind and that, looking back at all that happened, I realize that I had been slowly deceived. "

In 1987, after listening to the Christian testimony of a fellow inmate, God entered into his life through the reading of Psalm 34:6 "this poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him from all his troubles". In his prison cell, David Berkwitz turned his life over to God - "I told Him that I was sick and tired of doing evil. I asked Jesus to forgive me for all my sins. I spent a good while on my knees praying to Him. When I got up it felt as if a very heavy but invisible chain that had been around me for so many years was broken. A peace flooded over me. I did not understand what was happening. But in my heart I just knew that my life, somehow, was going to be different."

In September 2005, Morning Star Communications will public the testimony of David Berkowiz in the book, "Son of Hope: The Prison Journals of David Berkowitz, Volume 1." Berkowitz will receive no money for the sale of the book, but a portion of the sales will go to New York State Crime Victims Board for distribution to the victims of David's crimes.
