By Glen Doss (Author) -
Glen Doss rejected Christ as a teen and turned toward atheism, a mindset that ruled his life for decades. Beginning with his Christian roots on a rural Arkansas farm in the 1950s, Doss journeys with the reader through his past, including a terrifying account of the 1967 Tet Offensive in Vietnam, as his self-centered outlook draws him into a spiral of depression and anger. Amidst a spiritual crisis at age 39, Doss accepts Christ and later responds to God’s call to be an officer in The Salvation Army. As an adult rehabilitation center administrator, he grieves along with those who fail, but exults for those transformed because, he says, God also radically transformed me from a hostile, self-destructive individual to one who can finally serve him as an instrument of his will.
