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.
I recently met Sam Childers and he is every bit as charismatic as he seems in the book. The book "sounds" like Sam, meaning it's definitely written in his own words. His words are not always eloquent, but are always passionate.

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 10 months ago by Princess Bride
