From Drunkard to Redeemed: The Story of Reinhold Schultz's Salvation

While this wonderful trophy of redeeming grace walks the earth, no living man amenable to the appeal of appreciable, tangible results can reasonably doubt the power of god to save and keep even the vilest of the vile.
Philip Ilott Roberts' "Dry Dock of a Thousand Wrecks" provides a glimpse into the transformative impact of the Jerry McAuley Mission on the lives of destitute alcoholics and addicts in New York's Bowery and lower east side. In chapter 14, Reinhold Schultz's story stands out as a remarkable testimony of the power of redemption and saving grace.
Born in Germany, Schultz had all the advantages a young man could desire, but he lost himself in New York and became a mere barroom loafer. God, however, raised him up to a level of good citizenship, righteous living, and fellowship through Jesus Christ. Schultz's story is one of tragedy and sorrow, but also of hope and change.
It is a story that inspires and encourages others to see how God can transform a man from being a curse to himself and to the world into being a blessing to his family. Listen to the episode now here on and discover the power of redemption and saving grace in Schultz's journey from drunkard to redeemed man.
