It was Never About Justice is Michael Morisi’s memoir of how broken the criminal justice system is, and also about how to find Jesus in the deepest of pits. According to Morisi, anyone who seeks Christ will find Him. He is always there, ready to walk with those who seek him no matter how dark things look.
Michael Morisi was charged with crimes that did not happen and when he wanted to fight the charges, his Federal Public Defender told him: “Mike, you don’t understand. This case is not about truth, not about guilt or innocence and it was never about justice. You were targeted. And you either play the game, or this Prosecutor will make sure you go to prison for ten years for something you didn’t do. Just play the game and you’ll go home to your family…."
Sentenced to prison for a crime that never happened, Michael Morisi had a choice: be angry and let the injustice become his identity, or believe every word God said and seek His glory in one of the darkest places imaginable. Despite his eight months of prison—being locked up in a broken prison system, away from his young family—Morisi came out and said he wouldn’t trade a minute of it, because of all God did in and through him. Discover the truth of the Gospel and Morisi’s resilience in hardship in It was Never About Justice.
Heart Wrenching, Deeply Moving...A Story Of Grace!
Michael Morisi has written a story that made me sad about a failed justice system. But this is a story of how God uses the darkest moments of our lives share his love for broken people. This is what St. Paul meant when he wrote, "I want to report to you, friends that my imprisonment here has had the opposite of its intended effect. Instead of being squelched, the Message has actually prospered" (Philippians 1:12-The Message). Emotional, Inspirational, Couldnt Put It Down

Such A Joy To Read
read this book and it’s INCREDIBLE seriously!!! Mike wrote this SO beautifully- Jesus is revealed and His precious children - I am moved in a way I can’t fully express. I have a completely new way of understanding Him in this life and through trials - the revelations in this book are FIRE of our role as ambassadors of Christ and what it means to walk with Jesus!!!! This is PROFOUND!!! And WOW what a testimony - I felt the POWER of surrender and trust and yieldedness to be a vessel of love - Mike, you have provoked me in a way I don’t know that I have ever been provoked since Heidi Baker.

Have Courage…Trust In God
"We've all been through challenges and tragedy in our lives and reading Mike describe all that happened to him is heart wrench-ing. But in the midst of it all, It is easy to hear Jesus' voice in his words. It's a calming voice of the One who says, 'Don't worry;' ‘'Have courage,' and "Trust in Me.' It Was Never About Justice will help you understand that Jesus is the only true source of peace no matter what you are facing". Megan Alexander - Inside Edition
God Always Wins
When you read "It was Never About Justice" you will realize our nation's flawed concept of justice is subordinate to God's divine plans. For those victims of injustice, this book is a clarion call to stand firm and watch God turn what was meant for evil into abounding good. It is not simply a compelling story about a difficult experience. It is the chronicling of a transforming encounter with the One who redeems and restore in the darkest of times. Dr. Michael Hartsfield
"When you read It Was Never About Justice, you will realize true freedom, even in prison. For most of us, a prison is a place of no hope. But this book is evidence that God is our hope and will always be with us where ever we are and does His work through us." Joseph Sirack Admassu
