Billy Neal Moore’s Ordeal: Snatched from the Jaws of Death

Former death row inmate William "Billy" Neal Moore is a story of forgiveness and redemption.

After spending nearly 17 years on Georgia’s death row, the prisoner-turned-Pentecostal preacher says he is living proof that a wasted life can be revived and serve the good of humanity.

Moore was 22 years old when he wound up on Georgia’s death row after being convicted for the 1974 robbery murder of a 77-year-old man. Moore asked for and received forgiveness from the victim’s family. He was within 72 hours of his execution when, through the efforts of the victim’s family he was spared from a sentence of death and ultimately paroled.
