Item Description...
Stephen Lungu was the oldest son of a teenage mother, married off to a much older man by her parents, and living in a black township near Salisbury, Zimbabwe. When he was three his mother ran away, leaving him, and his younger brother and sister, in the reluctant care of an aunt. By eleven Stephen too had run away, preferring life on the streets. To survive, he slept under bridges and scavenged food from white folks' dustbins. As a teenager he was recruited into one of the urban gangs, called the Black Shadows, which ran a programme of theft and thuggery with a half-focused dream of revolution. When a travelling evangelist came to town, Stephen was sent to fire bomb the event, carrying his hag of bombs and mingling with the crowd. Instead of throwing bombs he stayed to listen...what followed was more amazing than fiction.

An Amazing Life Story of God's Transforming Grace  May 13, 2006
This is a book that you won't be able to put down. To read of how God in His mercy transformed Stephen's life from a life of total devastation and hopelessness into one of purpose and meaning and usefulness certainly builds one's faith and creates a desire to know this God of his. It encourages and gives hope to anyone who struggles with feelings of inferiority and "what's the meaning to life - is it worth the living?" Well worth the time and money - you will get more than you paid for!
Amazing  May 16, 2005
I was recently given this book as a gift because a friend of mine had heard Stephen speak at the bible school he is attending, and his testimony encouraged him so much that he bought a copy and had it sent to me, I loved it! It is truly inspiring and an amazing testimony of God's power! It left me just in awe that the God that saved Stephen is the same God that I love and serve! I encourage everyone to read this book and share it with everyone they know! God Bless!
high hopes  Apr 15, 2003
Stephen Lungu came to Stanford University to speak recently, and his testimony was one of the most moving testimonies I have ever heard in my entire life. I bought the book so that I could ask my friends to read it. I think the key to the testimony is that... most of the time, when Christians witness to other Christians, it is difficult to accept their perspective: Christians often get responses like, "it's easy for you to believe, you havn't suffered adversity", or "you simply believe because you were taught to believe when you were little." Mr. Lengu's testimony is nothing like this; from being abondoned as a small child and being taught by his environment to hate Christians, people, and God, he was able to turn his life around and see Jesus. Incredible evidence that Jesus is life-changing, and real, and the Savior.
One of the best books of the year.  Jan 16, 2003
Out of the Black Shadows is a gripping account of the amazing transformation of Stephen Lungo. The story takes you through his life from being a unloved, abandoned child, through his gang involvement to him becoming a world renowned evangelist. It is very encouraging to see what God can do in the lives of people. It is also a great book to understand about the lives of Africans and missionaries. I loved this book and have shared it with everyone I know.
