Thank you for joining me on another edition of ISV Radio as I talk to Pastor Bill Rieser and his life story. This edition is fueled by the book Vertical Leap, and is filled with what worked for him in his life. I ask that you listen with an open mind and an open heart, because at the end of the day this world is nothing but people with different stories and I want to tell you the ones filled with hope.
Stay Blessed, Wide Awake, and Always Ask Why? -Jaime
"As a high school phenomenon, Bill Rieser had a thunderous slam dunk and an intimidating game that humiliated opponents and left college coaches salivating. His sky-high leaps were so miraculous the other street players nicknamed the Italian boy from East Harlem, "White Jesus."
Yet Bill's life was anything but a slam dunk. He's been abused and neglected as a child ad he was angry at everyone and everything because of it. If that weren't enough, a promising college career and stardom in the NBA was derailed by injury and a self destructive pattern of excess. But just when it seemed his would be another tale of a talented life going down in flames, he encountered the real Jesus and discovered He's the true miracle worker who changes lives." Taken from Vertical Leap, an honest account of the story of Bill Rieser
