Loving the Unlovable

Rev. Tim Carter has encountered many people who struggled with loving the unlovable during his career—including himself. We caught up with Tim recently in Phoenix where he took a few moments to share how he overcame his inability to love the unlovable and the life lessons he learned during his career as a death row prison guard.

In his biography, The Executioner’s Redemption, Tim shares that his story is “about startling life lessons learned while dealing with death row inmates on the last day of their lives. It’s about love lessons from those deemed unlovable. It’s about heart lessons from God. But mostly it’s about God’s will for and activity in the lives of wounded sheep and deranged wolves."
