An easy read but yet a compelling story about the plight of the people in Sudan but also about how a man's life can be transformed by God.

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.

By Rocke Harder - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a story of one man's passion for a cause and his in fatigable struggle against forces of evil. He fights fire with fire by taking on the army from the Lords Resistance Army (LRA) led by Joseph Kony - murdering them to protect the children of Uganda/Sudan.

It's surprisingly well written and from the very start we are introduced to the struggles faced by the impoverished rural people of the Sudan. Sam Childers hates bullies and kicks sand back in their faces. He does it big style in the Sudan.

He is a gutsy and brave man.

I do question how a Christian can take up the gun and kill his enemies and I haven't worked out the theology on that one. But the book is an inspiration - showing what can be done by a man with passion and commitment.

Good on you Sam Childers - may God be with you. If only the governments of this world stood up to evil in the way you have done.

Not just another book... April 18 2009
By Kindle Customer - Published on
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.

Honest read Sept. 24 2011
By Cowboy165 - Published on
Format: Paperback
Sam Childers writes an honest memoir. Honest about the complex socioeconomic issues of Uganda/Sudan and honest about his life. Regarding either topic, he makes no excuses, blames no one and is not defensive about his actions. He is just honest. There is something about the brutal reality of evil in the world that we live in that he brings out in his story. In some situations in this world, the right thing to do is to communicate with people in the only language they understand. Bad things happen. People make bad choices. You can either complain about it make excuses all your life or you can accept it and change it. Sam Childers is a good example of the latter.

Move Over, Louis L'Amour Sept. 25 2011
By Sidney Reiners - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you like books about adventure, feats of daring and good guys vs. bad guys this book's for you. Best of all, it's TRUE. There really is a man who rescues, then feeds and houses, children abducted, tortured, absued and brainwashed by the Lord's Resistance Army in the Uganda-Sudan border region. The movie version "Machine Gun Preacher" has just been released. Hard-hitting both spiritually and physically. Give this book to the guy who says Christianity is for women and children.

Surprisingly good! Feb. 16 2012
By Advking - Published on
Format: Paperback
I'd never heard of Sam Childers before picking up this book. Now I want to join him in his fight against the unimaginable evil that exists in Africa.

This is a story of redemption in the greatest form: a grizzled drug-dealing biker whose life was going nowhere fast until he found God, locked-up the rear wheel, turned a full 180 degrees, and went full-throttle in the opposite direction kicking butt, saving lives, and pursuing those who intimidate and kill the defenseless. As a former infantryman and current international security professional, I was expecting to find incongruencies typical in many of today's warrior wanna-be productions. Not so in Childers' book. His battle drill is as simple as his street fighting technique: have a basic plan, intimidate,and, if the coward hasn't already retreated, reign hell upon the enemy knowing that righteousness is on your side. Whether you're a Christian, non-believer, or simply an armchair adventurer looking for a great story, you'll be moved to support Childers and his forces by the end of the book.
