Recovery through faith is the theme of a new book and movie that just came out. Who’s the author and producer? One of the Wahlberg brothers, but not actors Mark or Donnie.

Instead, their brother Jim tells his own personal – and sometimes brutal – story of addiction in the book “The Big Hustle: A Boston Street Kid’s Story of Addiction and Redemption” and the film he wrote and directed, “What About the Kids?”

Both forms of entertainment shed light on how, with God, all healing is possible. Jim Wahlberg joins Currents News to share his story and how he’s inspiring others around the world.
