Bosco H. C. Poon, a.k.a. B.O.Z (Born Of Zion), was an aspiring recording artist who ended up in a Canadian federal prison. In his most hopeless moment, Jesus appeared before him, and his life was completely changed.

Chinese-Canadian pastor Bosco Poon a.k.a. B.O.Z (Born of Zion), was an aspiring Canadian recording artist, but through a series of unfortunate associations and choices, he ended up involved in criminal activity, eventually becoming an accomplice to the kidnapping of a Vancouver college student in April 2004. He was arrested and entered a lengthy trial, where he was sentenced to 12 years in prison for kidnapping, extortion, and conspiracy. His case was featured prominently in the Canadian press.

Risen from Prison: Beyond My Wildest Imagination is Poon's autobiography and it chronicles his early life as an immigrant to Canada; the challenges he faced in his journey from musical success to gang involvement, his arrest, trial, and incarceration; his spiritual redemption; and the many miracles that occurred after meeting Jesus and his decision to follow Him.

His book, which was selected as the winner of the 2019 Word Guild/Castle Quay Books Best New Manuscript, moves from the top of the world to the very pits of prison life and then back out by the hand of God. B.O.Z calls everything that happened in his life "beyond his wildest imagination." His story recounts his fascinating journey with openness and vulnerability in the hope that others who have separated from God may find their way to Him also.

For three years, Bosco served as lead pastor of More Than 12 Church in Richmond, BC. He is now back in Hong Kong where he will work for the next year as an entertainment-world chaplain in Hong Kong.
