About the Book

At a time when young adults need inspiration the most due to adversity, peer-pressure, and loss of direction ‘From Failure to Promise’ -- author Dr. Cleamon Moorer shares  insights, experiences, and a miraculous story of how God can transform the real you into the ideal you.


Dr. Moorer tells about his journey from being a college flunk-out to becoming an engineer and ultimately a university professor. He exposes the realities of how many of the downtrodden are pushed to the brink of either surrender to the power of God or to a resistance and rejection of promise. Dr. Moorer takes readers on a faith journey from his adolescence in Detroit Public Schools to academic failure on the collegiate level and through other turbulent tracks on the way to becoming a university professor and dean. 


This story of one young man's journey will serve as a compass for those who are in pursuit of success. He shares relative scriptures, skills, and strategies pertinent to overcoming failure. It is an amazing story with an UNBELIEVABLE FINISH and a "call to action"!
