This is not a true but far off story of a Bible character who lived long ago doing amazing things, but a true, current, and living story of life and death in our world TODAY!
Read it and then take action, personally and collectively to help all in need - whether in East Africa or in your own back yard.
No, the difficult part is the subject matter. Sam Childers pulls no punches about his past as a drug-dealer, a biker hoodlum, etc. He takes the same approach to his work as a Christian soldier fighting against the LRA in Southern Sudan, rescuing children abused and orphaned by the vicious militia.
Make no mistake, this is a violent tale ... in a violent place. Childers starts out helping roof a building for charity and winds up establishing an orphanage right int he middle of a war zone. He talks about his walk with God, his inspiration ... and the desperate need for funds.
This book was the inspiration for an equally difficult and inspiring film, "Machine Gun Preacher." Both are highly recommended.
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.
