Journey to Redemption
Small-Time Pool Hustler, Convicted Bank Robber, Born Again Christian
“I didn’t stop robbing banks because I became a nice guy. I just didn’t enjoy being in prison.” – Ted Nellis, 1981
Journey to Redemption paints an intimate portrait of a man desperately searching for himself and for his place in a world he found himself at odds with.
Travel with Ted Nellis into some of the dingiest pool rooms, hotels, and hostels in western Canada. Join him in his cell in Kingston Penitentiary. Peek into a deserted doctor’s waiting room on a quiet October evening and discover Ted on his knees during an encounter with God that would change his life forever.
“My father’s life reads like something out of a movie. I’m very excited about his book.” – Cole Nellis
“Ted is a trophy of God’s grace.” – Pastor Ken Miles
