The book is not about overwhelming success - but it is about the reality of what happens when people meet Jesus and about the kind of change he can effect when given the space to do his work.Christianity Magazines Review (2010):Fred is high on drugs and doesnt want Howard Webber, the then Salvation Army captain, to come round to his flat because it is in chaos, rather like Fred himself. They meet, instead, in the cafe at a supermarket in a nearby town. But the road isnt straight and we follow the twists and turns of Howard and Freds relationship - through missed promises, desperate heartache and self-destruction and final redemption.This book is perhaps the most extraordinary one Ive reviewed since writing for Christianity. It is a series of stories of evangelism on the hard side of life. It is painfully honest and lists as many failures as successes, as many deaths as new lives. Documenting Webbers spiritual battles too, it is possibly the most moving set of accounts Ive ever read, and the most hopeful. It is all too easy to see the role of being Gods ambassadors as reduced to preaching, or set among those who we love and are safe. But this book challenges us to be where Jesus would be, with the down-and-outs, with the hopeless and the broken. It looks the cost of such ministry square in the eye and carries on just the same. Please buy this book.
