A Rare Thing...

I going to talk about a book. I know most people who read this didn't even know I read, much less read enough to talk about it. But in the past several month's I have tried to really be disciplined about making time everyday to read. I have done fairly well with increasing the book reading but still struggle with just sitting down and reading the Word. The books, however, have been good for me. Last night I finished my 4th book and it is the one I want to recommend.

Another Man's War, is the story of Sam Childers, a biker/drug dealer, turned Pastor, turned African Freedom Fighter in Southern Sudan. As anybody that knows me knows, I have a special place in my heart for Africa, mostly West Africa, but when I saw this in the store something about it struck me and I had to read it.

I don't want to spoil any of the remarkable stories Sam lays out in the book but it is such a wonderful story of God's grace on one man, and how when that man lays everything on the line to recklessly pursue a God ordained call on his life, the incredible difference can be made around the world.

I guess the point is, if you want to read a story about the incredible forgiveness and provision the God offers us pick this one up and read it.

p.s. and I dare you to read it and not cry!!
