Sam Childers was thoroughly immersed in the dark side of biker culture, and got stopped in his tracks by God, who spun him round and sent him on a totally different mission. He found himself in Southern Sudan, and saw the effects caused by the Lord's Resistance Army's terror - they kidnap children and turn them into soldiers and sex slaves. The ones they leave behind they chop the limbs off of. Unable to just stand by and watch this happen he makes forays into the bush to rescue these kids, and he started an orphanage to house and educate them. This is a well told story with gripping subject matter (you couldn't make this up!) of a man (and God) who is not willing to let evil men have the last say . I couldn't put it down. BUY THIS BOOK AND GET YOUR FRIENDS TO BUY ONE TOO!

This is a story of one man's passion for a cause and his in fatigable struggle against forces of evil. He fights fire with fire by taking on the army from the Lords Resistance Army (LRA) led by Joseph Kony - murdering them to protect the children of Uganda/Sudan.

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.

Great book. No nonsense straight to the point honest and life changing. It is an inspirational read and just shows how one man can have a massive difference on an individuals life. Also shows how God can change somebody's life around by having faith in him.

Wonderful book - possibly the most inspirational book I have ever read! God took a wild, violent, drug dealing biker (probably with ADHD) and turned him into a fierce force for good, fighting one of the most evil organisations that ever existed on this planet!.

Emotionally a hard book to read, but absolutely amazing. Thank God for this man and his unconditional love and devotion to protect the vulnerable and innocent! But it shouldn't be another mans war it should be everyones war, especially those in authority!!!!

What a story of one man's life. Such a truthful account of Gods power to change a life and what one good man can do when doing nothing is not an option. If this book does not touch you then you have no heart.

Relatively poorly-written by technical standards but the story is captivating and the layman's style is actually kind of endearing. The story tells itself and it is definitely worth a read.
