Book Review: Out of the Black Shadows

No one should experience the childhood of Stephen Lungu—abandoned by parents, abused by relatives, assaulted by hunger as he rummaged through white man’s garbage cans. Yet he survived and as a teen led the Black Shadows gang—until he experienced a conversion as dramatic as that of the apostle Paul. Unable to read or write, the young man from Rhodesia never dreamed what God had in store for him.

Suffice to say Lungu’s story is riveting and absolutely amazing. If you want your faith bolstered, if you want inspiration to overcome life’s greatest challenges, if you doubt that prayers are answered--just read this book. Stranger than fiction, Lungu’s story will touch your heart and just may transform your life.

I read this book after watching Lungu on a Sunday school class video, and I'm glad I did. After miraculously surviving his tumultuous childhood, God has used him to trigger miracles of conversion around the world. If you ever doubt what God can do through one willing vessel, read this book and doubt no more.
