Welcome to the official website of Author Ellis D. Lucas!

While he never envisioned becoming an author, Ellis Lucas is a natural born storyteller nonetheless. And in an age where it feels like everyone, even the most inconsequential of public figures and celebrities, feels compelled to chronicle their life’s journey in memoir form, Ellis Lucas’s The Potter and the Clay isn’t yet another ho-hum account of a few of humanity’s shared experiences. It’s a gritty, real-life story of utter transformation. A riveting and transparent page-turner of a story filled with love, a veritable mountain of loss, and eventually, sweet redemption, The Potter and the Clay also offers a powerful takeaway, namely that no matter how far someone feels from salvation, hope, change and, yes, total renewal are never out of reach.

“My life had been so completely destroyed that I’d come to believe there was absolutely no hope of ever changing, and all I had to look forward to was whatever awaited me beyond the grave—most likely judgment,” Ellis shares. “But while locked up in the Clay County Missouri Jail, at the end of life as I knew it, Jesus Christ stretched out His mighty hand of grace and showed Himself along with an astonishing revelation. God loved me and had an amazing plan for my life if I would open my heart and receive Him that day. And that’s a message I want the whole world to hear.” Read More!
