  Memoirs of the Prodigal Son:

The Road to Redemption

“Fifteen Years in Prison and Beyond”


Author-Publisher:  Reverend John C. Dortch, Juris Doctor

Having been the focus of national media for many years, appearing on the Today Show with Katie Couric and having been featured in many national newspaper articles and magazines, Rev. John C. Dortch, President and CEO of Disciple Publishing Company, has authored his first book and has established DPC as a vehicle to publish, market, promote and distribute his seminal work, “The Memoirs of the Prodigal Son: The Road to Redemption”.


It has taken fifteen painstaking years to complete the original manuscript, but for him it has truly been a labor of love. It is the author’s prayerful expectation, through the Living Word of God, to inspire and empower readers to live victorious lives in Christ, despite the magnitude of the challenges they may be facing. For the believer, who has a modicum of faith, there is always reason to hope.

The author’s memoirs is the first of several manuscripts that he will write and publish under DPC. The company will select, edit, and publish other inspirational works, sharing the extraordinary testimonies of ordinary people. The founding author will also adapt his original work for a screenplay for a major motion picture production. Come share this exciting journey as we, in faith, confidently navigate the uncharted course of life.

For “since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down on the right hand of the throne of God.”


(New King James Version, Thomas Nelson’s Bible, Hebrews 12:1-2).
