    Great story of God's love and power in Stephen Lungu's life. From a gang member to International Team Leader of Africa Enterprise. favorite quote (cause it's true!) "You Americans have been blessed with wristwatches but you don't have much time. We Africans have no wristwatches, but we have plenty of time!"

    I just love a good story about Jesus doing the impossible with the improbable. I thought the book could have done a better job of keeping the timeline clear, such as simply throwing in a date every once in a while, and there were a few other editing issues, but that couldn't detract from the glory of the account.

    Inspirational autobiography of Stephen Lungu who is now heads up African Enterprise. Felt a little simple, but I did enjoy it thoroughly. Definitely a quick read.

    An absolute thriller! A very powerful testimony from somebody who clearly loves God. I was particularly encouraged by his complete reliance on God from the moment of his conversion. It's a story that shows God can reach anyone.

    Amazing! Only put it down because I had to go to sleep or the bath went cold! Brought me to tears and I a hard nut to crack! Our God is a great big God and he holds us in his hands. We should not doubt for anything. He genuinely provides all our needs. Faith and patience will prevail, always.

    No one should experience the childhood of Stephen Lungu—abandoned by parents, abused by relatives, assaulted by hunger as he rummaged through white man’s garbage cans. Yet he survived and as a teen led the Black Shadows gang—until he experienced a conversion as dramatic as that of the apostle Paul. Unable to read or write, the young man from Rhodesia never dreamed what God had in store for him.Suffice to say Lungu’s story is riveting and absolutely amazing. If you want your faith bolstered, if you want inspiration to overcome life’s greatest challenges, if you doubt that prayers are answered--just read this book. Stranger than fiction, Lungu’s story will touch your heart and just may transform your life.I read this book after watching Lungu on a Sunday school class video, and I’m glad I did. After miraculously surviving his tumultuous childhood, God has used him to trigger miracles of conversion around the world. If you ever doubt what God can do through one willing vessel, read this book and doubt no more.

    I can't say enough about this book; it was absolutely brilliant! I enjoyed reading about the familiar places I've visited in Zimbabwe and Malawi and also the historical background portrayed in the book.What I enjoyed even more was reading about all the miracles Stephen experienced and how the terrble things he experienced actually helped make him into a man of compassion and great wisdom.I think the book is also a sort of sociological adventure, we see White culture from the eyes of a Black man. Stephen does a good job of contrasting the two cultures but in a non-divisive way. Highly recommended!

    I usually read a biography over the summer. This one grabbed me initially but began to lose it's appeal as it progressed. It was a good read but I wouldn't say it was a great read.

    I had the privilege of hearing Stephen Lungu speak when I lived in London. This story is truly captivating and redemptive. It's not often you hear a story of the transformation of a "terrorist."

    Un recorrido muy interesante por la vida de un hombre que decidió abandonar su lucha armada para dedicarse a evangelizar africanos.

    What a great testimony of God's grace and the love of Jesus! I don't think you can stand indifferent towards Christ and salvation after reading this book! What a powerful testimony! Praise God!
