Format: Hardcover
This is an amazing true story of Sam Childers, whose life changed dramatically from a tough, fighting, drug-dealing biker to a preacher with a heart for the war-torn Sudan. His faith in God and unwavering desire to do whatever God wanted him to do become the most compelling force in his life. His heart breaks especially for the children of Sudan and Uganda who experienced such horror and terror at the hands of the Lord's Resistance Army. He goes in with his band of soldiers where others fear to go to rescue as many children as he can find and provides a home for them in the orphanage that he has built. He is not afraid to fight or do whatever he has to do to save the children.
Parts of the book are hard to read as Sam describes some of the terrible things done to people by the LRA but it is good for us in our protected lives to know what happens in other parts of our world. Even though most of us would not be willing to do what Sam does or maybe not even agree with his methods, his love and sincerity for God and the suffering people of Africa are very evident. This was a book that I did not stop thinking about for a long time after reading it.

I love this book, I couldn't put it down. The writing style is simple and engaging, as if Sam was telling you his story face to face. His testimony is filled with miracles. One cannot read this book and not be moved to action toward the children of Sudan. It is also hard to walk away and not reckon that there is a mighty God at work in a desperate part of the world.

Not just another book... April 18 2009
By Michael Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Another Man's War: The True Story of One Man's Battle to Save Children in the Sudan is an amazing book. I really don't know where to begin - other than this is a Must read. I picked up the book after a friend pointed it out to me. The book was and wasn't what I expected it to be. It was actually way more. I expected to read about the horrors and what he had done to help the children of Sudan, but what I didn't expect was the story of how his life was shaped and guided to where he is now. What I mean is you see how God can use what we go through in life to prepare us for what is to come.

This book is not for the faint of heart - it will cause you to rethink things and it will shock you no matter how hardcore you are. This book will not leave you unchanged. All the news reports will not prepare you. Sam Childers does an amazing job bring it all alive.

I highly recommend this book to everyone.

A compelling and fascinating story of self-sacrifice, compassion and the fearless drive of a man on a mission. You will be inspired to do more, give more and make a bigger impact with your life.

Sam effectively and powerfully sheds light on a country of people in critical need and calls us all to action.

This will make the Tuffest Hells Angel Tear Up! May 24 2009
By Edward R. Askelson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Gritty, unpolished, REAL. How brutal life is, How brutal it was and How this man hopes it might be. I read it straight through. Didn't want to put it down. This is the kind of book that actually affects lives. A must read for anyone that wants to know about the tragic, inhumane atrocities going on in North East Africa. All we hear is Darfur. Noone even really knows what that means. This "hands on" story makes you understand. Makes you d..n mad! Makes you want to help. Dumps the politically correct and put's some fight in you. Great book. Not because it is Slick, but because it is REAL. Because you find out what "it is" that really makes a man change from doing evil to doing good. What it means to sacrifice for others. Read the Book. Maybe even join the war.

Good and challenging read Sept. 17 2010
By F. M. Huff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Sam Childers lives in a world few Americans would dare venture into let alone try to rescue it's children from the insane lunatic evil known as the LRA. This book does not speak of ventures into mamby pamby land but a real world where evil is rampant, deadly, brutal, inhumane and nearly unchecked. Don't read this book if you would rather not know what terror lies beyond the horizon and the men who work to turn back the tide. If on the other hand you care about the suffering of a world gone mad and want to know the good news of what can be done about it, order the book, or several to pass around like I did.

Sudan-A Place From Hell March 26 2009
By 05/11A - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I deployed to Nuba Mountains in Central/Southern Sudan in early 2002; I just returned from 6 months in southern Sudan adjacent to Uganda. The ethnic cleansing and genocidal acts of the Bashir government should not be tolerated by the international community..although, it is and has.

Anyone like like this author who dedicates his time, efforts and safety for the well being of others must be read..hence, I will order the book today. (I am currently overseas)

To all those who help...thank you!
