Book Description

March 17 2009

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.

Endorsements:

“Another Man’s War is about true terrorism . . . against more than 200,000 children in northern Uganda and Southern Sudan. Sam Childers—a fighter and a preacher (some call him a mercenary)—tirelessly leads a small militia into the jungle, daring to fight against a vicious army outnumbering him one thousand to one. One man can make a huge difference. Sam Childers certainly does.” -- Peter Fonda, actor/filmmaker, best known as star of Easy Rider

“The Reverend Sam Childers has been a very close friend to the government of South Sudan for many years and is a trusted friend.”  -- President Salva Kiir Mayardit of South Sudan

“The Reverend Sam Childers is a long time devoted friend to our government and his courageous work is supported by us.” -- President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda

“Sam Childers is one of those rare men [who is] willing to do literally whatever it takes to promote the message of Jesus Christ and save children from the tyranny of evil men.” -- John Rich, lead singer and songwriter, Big & Rich

5.0 out of 5 stars Touching and powerful testimony Sept. 26 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping story Aug. 31 2009
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.
