5.0 out of 5 stars Action film, 4 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Machine Gun Preacher [DVD] (DVD)
A pot history of Sam Childers, from the days when he was a motorcycle drug dealer.
There's not much about his early life or the miracles that follow him out in Africa, but that can be found in his book 'Another man's war'.
The film is very realistic and particularly the scenes in Africa.
The film seems to be pretty historically acurate, judging from his autobiography, and is very touching in places.
Alot of swearing at the beginning and a few brief bits of gore later in the film.
I would recommend it as an entertaining film even if you're not interested in Sam Childer's conversion to Jesus or the troubles of Africa either.
There is some war action in it but not a great deal. I would recommend reading his autobiography too to fill in the gaps that the film doesn't cover and privide a background for other important aspects in the film, like why there is a war in Sudan, and why Sam Childers converted to Christianity.
It has all the more relevance because he is still running an orphanage in Africa and fighting to save lives over there(Sudan)

4.0 out of 5 stars Prayers and doctrines, 4 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book contains a long prayer based on the Lords prayer and other prayers for each day on specific topics such as lust or humility, articles of faith and things to be believed, a few hymns, most of which would not be known elsewhere.
Also there are instructions on living a holy routine.
One has to get used to the 17 century English of course and the highly eloquent prose style of the writer.
The book is a useful compliment to Holy Living, Holy dying, as its not too long and he pages are large.

5.0 out of 5 stars A unique story, 4 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you want a review of a man comiited to fighting(literally) for good, this is for you.
An honest story and touching, and gives some information not in the more famous film, machine gun preacher
Quite a bit about Sam's personal political views, not much preaching or theology in the book.
He mentions some of the types of atrocities committed by his enemies, mainly the Lord resistance army.
The book helps you get inside the mind of the writer and brings home the need of the children in this land.
I enjoyed reading the story and look forward to a sequel.
Only problem was Amazon took too long to deliver and I had to order it from a third party in the end.
