Wordery! Excellent service as usual. Arrived really quickly and at a VERY competitive cost. My friend is the author. I look forwards to my bedtime reading. If you get a chance to hear this man speak, I wholeheartedly recommend him. He is a Christian, but perhaps not in a guise that you would readily think of. His ministry touches those on the edges of our society. He is a truly humble man. Justice, Mercy & Humility; Sean in a teacup.
When I heard that Sean was writing this book I was very interested in what he had to say on God, the Club and life in general. I received it last weekend and cannot put it down. Humanity and God stripped to the core. This indeed is the way 'Church' should be. A loving environment, in which people of all persuasions can come in, and find something different to the madhouse of today's society. It's also a great mine of information on the formation of a great work, this being the GSCMC UK. I've met Sean on many occasions now and can't wait to meet him again in order to ask questions that until I received the book, I didn't know existed. I thoroughly recommend this book even to those of you who do not have any kind of faith in God, and indeed the world if you dig it. Amen brother.
I must declare an interest, since I know the author. This is the story of Sean Stillman, the boy who wanted to be a rock and roll star and ended up helping the needy in Swansea. On the way he helped found a motorcycle club, rode tens of thousands of miles (if not 100s), went around the world, helped more people than I can think of, and married his sweetheart. Probably he deserves an MBE. Possibly he'd turn it down. Sean is a christian, and a guiding principle of his is being righteous in the godly sense. Occasionally it's ladelled on a bit thick, he's quite a quite, reserved, private person and I think he feels he needs to emphasise things which are actually apparent to anyone who knows him - or who will read this book. I've known him for many years - yet I learned things about his ministry which I had missed. If you haven't met him, or you have just a passing acquaintance, then read this. It's an easy read. Four stars because he's not as rough looking as the cover!
I bought this book , quite a while ago now , I don’t leave reviews in general, but after reading this book many times I feel the need , this book has brought me to tears , the first time I read this book , I was over Whelmed with the honesty and sadness , but at the same time , what it stood for , for me it made me think about the way things are in the world, and following a good man on a quest to find good in the darkest of places , mr Stillman is a man whom we should all aspire to be , it’s an honest account of an honest man in the trenches of life , couldn’t recommend it more
One of the most honest, challenging books I've ever read in my life. I literally didn't put this book down as I couldn't! Sean is the real deal and truly lives his faith on the very margins where few tread. If you read no other book this year, make sure it's this one - and if you are not seriously challenged and forced to re-examine your own faith in light of its message, you need help yourself...
A true inspiration. A challenge to follow. A short and to the point writing style makes for a quick read. No fillers, useless words used. Strait to the point. Interesting to any Christian who is open to an alternative look at faith and it's out working. Thanks for writing this.
Greatly inspiring book by a greatly inspiring bloke. I know the dangerous line he walks & the good he has done in doing so. His faith has helped him improve so many people’s lives & this book is testimony to that... BUY IT
