Featured Reviews

It's an amazing, arresting and touching story.

J. I. Packer, Well known author & Board of Governors' Professor of Theology, Regent College, Vancouver, Canada


In the chaos of people's lives that have been devastated by drugs, alcohol and the neglect of society Mez comes boldly and sometimes brashly with the message of the love of Christ that can bash down any barrier... will inspire and humble any reader.

Al Barth, Global Network Coordinator for Redeemer City To City, New York


This is another story of God's power to transform anyone who opens up their life to him... It could also be valuable to pass on to anyone beginning to look towards Christ from a seemingly impossible background. It is a short, gripping and challenging story.

British Church Newspaper


This is a compelling, gripping, heart-wrenching, you-can't-put-it-down story of sin and grace. Read this and thank God that, as Psalm 136 says, 'His love endures forever.'

Mark Dever, Senior Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church and President, 9Marks.org, Washington, DC


Description

Since the publication of 'A child called "it"' by Dave Pelzer there hasn't been a story like this. But this is not just another harrowing story about an excruciating childhood and the ravages on a life it produces. The difference is that Mez not only escaped from his 'trial by parent' but he discovered a hope that has transformed his life. He in turn has helped others find hope in their lives. Mez's story is told with a frankness and wit that hides much of the pain and despair that was his everyday experience. Do you like happy endings? Mez still suffers from his experiences but you'll be amazed at how far you can be restored from such a beginning.

This is another story of God's power to transform anyone who opens up their life to him. It would provide great encouragement to anyone working among the seriously deprived or engaged in prison work. It could also be valuable to pass on to anyone beginning to look towards Christ from a seemingly impossible background. It is a short, gripping and challenging story.
