Josh McDowell would become one of the world's most well-known evangelists. But his story begins with a young boy on a farm . . . one who didn't believe in God. There's a saying that childhood is the most beautiful of life's seasons. And so it should be. But that wasn't true for Josh McDowell. He was born to an alcoholic father who showed him no love, who valued him only as a farmhand. He endured years of painful abuse. Josh's mother loved him but was unable to rescue him. In the midst of circumstances no child should have to suffer, Josh cried out to God for help, but He seemed silent. And so Josh believed God wasn't listening--or even there at all.How does a boy overcome such adversity to become one of the most impactful evangelists for Christ that the world has ever known?This is Josh McDowell's story. For the first time, Josh fully reveals the dramatic spiritual transformation that occurred when he faced his past head-on and put everything entirely in God's hands. It's a story of overcoming shame, grief, and despair and embracing real love for the first time. It's a tale of divine grace: when the worst that life can throw at you happens, you can come out on the other side with a faith that is full, free--and undaunted.
