It's surprisingly well written and from the very start we are introduced to the struggles faced by the impoverished rural people of the Sudan. Sam Childers hates bullies and kicks sand back in their faces. He does it big style in the Sudan.
He is a gutsy and brave man.
I do question how a Christian can take up the gun and kill his enemies and I haven't worked out the theology on that one. But the book is an inspiration - showing what can be done by a man with passion and commitment.
Good on you Sam Childers - may God be with you. If only the governments of this world stood up to evil in the way you have done.
This book is not for the faint of heart - it will cause you to rethink things and it will shock you no matter how hardcore you are. This book will not leave you unchanged. All the news reports will not prepare you. Sam Childers does an amazing job bring it all alive.
I highly recommend this book to everyone.
This is a story of redemption in the greatest form: a grizzled drug-dealing biker whose life was going nowhere fast until he found God, locked-up the rear wheel, turned a full 180 degrees, and went full-throttle in the opposite direction kicking butt, saving lives, and pursuing those who intimidate and kill the defenseless. As a former infantryman and current international security professional, I was expecting to find incongruencies typical in many of today's warrior wanna-be productions. Not so in Childers' book. His battle drill is as simple as his street fighting technique: have a basic plan, intimidate,and, if the coward hasn't already retreated, reign hell upon the enemy knowing that righteousness is on your side. Whether you're a Christian, non-believer, or simply an armchair adventurer looking for a great story, you'll be moved to support Childers and his forces by the end of the book.
Sam effectively and powerfully sheds light on a country of people in critical need and calls us all to action.

God is good, very good that the story is told first hand.
It would be great to have a Spanish translation. Read more
This truly ordinary man finds his life being directed in unbelievable ways to help the most forgotten victims in the Sudan civil war. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Renee Ellsworth
Enjoyed the movie; but liked the book better. It's a true story with additives in the movie. There is very harsh language, so if you're easily offended move on. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Princess Bride

Quick read. Excellent message. I agree with some of this man's views. 1. You should give your money to a group that is actually working on-site. 2. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Mark J Stacy
The story was terrific - it's very down to earth and told from an autobiographical point of view.
Almost like listening to the author tell it.
