    A Reveiwer

    I respect everyone's opinion, but I do not necessarily agree with everyone. I am in favor of what Sam Childers is doing for those children in Sudan. Those men have been doing terrible things to those poor children. Sometimes violence is necessary. What would you do if you knew that your kids were going through the stuff that these kids have to endure daily?

    Loved this book and this ministry!

    Couldn't put it down. It came recommended by my brother. It was my first Nook purchase as well. I read it in a day and a half. Why? Because I had previous plans and would have read it all night. It was a well written and beautiful story of love, redemption, and just a good fight for all the right purposes. This man put his life on the line in many ways to save these children and I am grateful he did after reading the story. I bought the book for my brother for his birthday. He loved it to!

    Excellent Book,

    Sam Childers makes the horrors of the LRA and the suffering of the children of South Sudan and Northern Uganda real. Highly recommend.

    Awesome Man

    This Man (Sam Childers) is an awesome man. I have had the priveledge to see him speak a few times at the Church I attend in California (SeaCoast Grace Church). <BR/><BR/>He is doing an amazing thing for third world country children and our prayers should go out to him constantly.

    Huge Disappointment

    I don't know what I was expecting out of this book but this wasn't it. The premise sounded great: a former biker druggie who goes into the Sudanese bush and actually fights back. I guess that's the only thing that intrigued me about reading this book. I couldn't even finish it; the last fifty pages remain unread.

    Trust me, I gave it a chance. But his writing style is horrible; I've seen better writing in high schoolers. He writes sporadically, at some points talking about an ambush then abruptly jumping to how he shot up cocaine and heroine in his past life. There's no true flow to his narrative. What's made reading this even harder was the preachy nature he used. I understand that he was inspired by God, but I felt like he was jamming the message down my throat with every chance he got. The nail in the coffin for me was when at one point he faults the Muslim armies for using "their" God as a means for justifying violence, then goes on in a later chapter to actually quote the Bible in defending his violent actions.

    Reading his book has definitely put his actions in a different light. Fighting violence with violence doesn't work. Neither does a biased, hypocritical perspective of the world. Doesn't the Bible even say to offer the other cheek?
