Item Description...
Overview
The rise of Sam Childers from violent, drug-addicted biker to a man willing to risk everything to rescue the orphans and child soldiers of Sudan



"All my life, from birth, it's been a fight. And it always seemed to be another man's war. I always seemed to be fighting for someone else. But it always came back to me. The word says we're born into sin, and sin always comes back to war." ---Sam Childers

Sam Childers has always been a fighter. Born to a violent father and a mother of great faith, his life was a contradiction. With an affinity for drugs and women, the angry young man grew into a drug-dealing biker. But that was then. Nowadays Sam-along with the cadre of Sudanese soldiers he employs-spends his time in the most dangerous parts of Sudan and Uganda rescuing the youngest victims of war, orphans and child-soldiers. His mission is simple: save the children, no matter the cost.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Another Man's War  Apr 8, 2010
An amazing story, but poorly written. It was difficult at times to stay interested due to the disjointed writing style. I think Mr. Childers would have better served his cause by employing a professional co-author. I would have liked more information on his childhood and background which led him to his noble cause. Although I was aware of the situation in Sudan, this book merely emphasized the largely ignored horrendous atrocities still occurring there. I applaud his unorthodox tactics, and will certainly make a point of researching this horrible situation further. I understand this book is being made into a movie, and will be extremely curious to see how it is handled in that medium.
 
Read It And Be Changed  Jan 12, 2010
This is a compelling and uncomfortable read! Sam Childer's testimony is incredible and I was inspired by him. He is a man that is not just reading the Word, but living the Word. He loves to the end of himself like Jesus. It's impossible to read this and not be changed and challenged. Why can't I help my neighbor, when he travels across the globe to protect innocent victims of violence, putting himself in harms way every day? You can't Not care after reading this book.
 
Angels with dirty faces  Nov 19, 2009
There are countless reviews on this book as it is, but for what it's worth...The Word says,"he who is forgiven much, loves much." I have been involved in biker ministry, prison and jail ministry and I have found that those who have come out a background that included not ready for prime time behaviour were the ones who sold out and applied that same energy and intensity to their Christian life. Sometimes it was a struggle to harness and aim the intensity in the proper direction, but when it happened, they became bulldozers for the Lord. Sam Childers is an example of this. To me, it is a relief to see someone who doesn't need to "feel led" to put it all on the line to do His work. I'm sure he is criticized by many in the church who will sit on their hands, year after year, growing roots into their pews and have to "pray about it." Then when the prayer gets answered using someone who says,"here I am send me," they will systematically dissect them for using unorthodoxed methods to save and change lives.
Personally, I wasn't concerned how this book was written. If I wanted literature I would have read Bernard Shaw or Oscar Wilde. I wanted to know how Childers got from point A to point B and I found out. I saw many parallels in the lives that have surrounded my own. I hope celebrity doesn't change him as it so often does to those in position in the Christian world. There are enough rock star preachers. If you like getting dirt under your fingernails and you're a blue collar Christian, read this book.
 
Compelling and Simple  Sep 8, 2009
As I read this book it was obvious to me that it was written by a man with little formal education. The simple, frank storytelling does not sound polished. The book certainly won't win any Pulitzers. However, the story itself has so much value that it almost doesn't matter that it is not well written.

Sam Childers is not the kind of person I normally like. He wasted his youth on drugs, sex and fighting. He dropped out of high school. He introduced hundreds of people to dangerous drugs. As a young man he constantly got into fights and still to this day believes that violence is the answer to many problems. Too much of this book focuses on his bad choices. I did not read this book so I could hear the intimate details of how Sam Childers slept with married women or sold illegal drugs. I understand he would like his readers to know where he is coming from, but the details are a bit gratuitous and unnecessesary.

However, the parts of this book that focus on his work in Sudan and the plight of the children living there are invaluable. Since the reckless days of Sam Childer's youth, he has turned his life around and founded a large orphanage compound in a war zone in Southern Sudan. He has rescued thousands of children from a fate worse than death. When in Sudan he is under constant threat of ambush, is freqently shot at, always carries an automatic weapon. To survive day after day in a situation like that and do what Childers does, you almost have to have a propensity for violence.

As a believer in diplomacy I find some of his opinions hard to stomach, but reading this book I could not help but recognize the need for people like Sam Childers in a world where AK-47 wielding psychopaths commit crimes that make the imaginations of serial killers seem tame. If nothing else this book deserves three stars for making me see things in a different way. A book that presents such a compelling argument deserves to be read whether you ultimately agree with Childers' methods or not.
 
Great read!  Aug 17, 2009
This book was a great read. It was interesting and informative. If you have a heart for Africa or missions, you will love this book b/c it demonstrates the true need for someone to stand in the gap to help others and tell them about how Christ died for their sins. Also, I love how it tells miracle after miracle that God provided for his servant. That is how God is...faithful and true, even when we may not be.
