What a fascinating read! Ken writes insuch a way that you are with him at every turn of this amazing journey. Likemany who have come to know Ken in the last 20 years, I read this with greatanticipation and eagerness. I wondered what manner of journey could yield a manof such depth and conviction. As I began the book, my first response was: Howdifferent is the Ken I know from the young man in the pages of this book. Butthe more I read, the more I realized how the man Ken is today grew out of theseed of the young man in this book. Had Ken never met the One who redeems ourpast, his journey would have ended in tragedy and nothingness, and would holdno interest for the reader. But because Ken writes from the perspective of theredeemed, this journey is rich with God's fingerprints at every step of theway. And at a deeper level, while the particulars are Ken's unique story, thejourney he describes is one that each of us either has, or must, travel.--Bob Guild, Former Navy Pilot
From the Author
This is the storyof two Vietnam Veterans who allowed fate to be their guide while navigatingthrough the spiritual maze of the 1970's as they traveled by freight trains andhitchhiked through our nation's cities. By using their wits and streetknowledge, they traveled as vagabonds looking for the next free ride to nowherein particular while mooching off whatever resources or people who happened tocome their way.
My purpose inwriting this book is not to glorify the drug-crazed lifestyle I once led. Mypurpose is, rather, to show how our gracious Heavenly Father is long-sufferingand full of loving kindness towards us even in our most sinful states. He nevergives up on us, but He continually draws us unto Himself.
The latter partof the book shows how God can take any life--no matter what condition the personis in--and use that life as an instrument of His righteousness. This person isthen, through the leading of the Holy Spirit, able to become the person God hasdestined them to be.
