Jim Wahlberg’s Journey From Prison to Christ

Growing up as the middle child amongst nine kids, film producer, and screenwriter Jim Wahlberg‘s childhood was interesting, to say the least — but it was during his adolescence that a world of addiction and crime would lead him down a dark path, ending him up in prison. After years of falling away from his family, battling his demons, and feeling like there was no hope, he found it in the place he least expected: in Christ.

This Good Friday, Mark Wahlberg’s brother Jim joins Martha to discuss how he chronicles his tumultuous journey to finding Jesus in his new book, The Big Hustle: A Boston Street Kid’s Story of Addiction and Redemption, and how he was able to reshape his skewed perception of Christianity to discover that Jesus’ love knows no bounds.
