Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The rise of Sam Childers from violent, drug-addicted biker to a man willing to risk everything to rescue the orphans and child soldiers of Sudan.

All my life, from birth, it's been a fight. And it always seemed to be another man's war. I always seemed to be fighting for someone else. But it always came back to me. The Word says we're born into sin, and sin always comes back to war. -Sam Childers

Sam Childers has always been a fighter. Born to a violent father and a mother of great faith, his life was a contradiction. With an affinity for drugs and women, the angry young man grew into a drug-dealing biker. But that was then. Nowadays Sam-along with the cadre of Sudanese soldiers he employs-spends his time in the most dangerous parts of Sudan and Uganda rescuing the youngest victims of war, orphans and child-soldiers. His mission is simple: save the children, no matter the cost.

Another Man's War is about true terrorism . . . against more than 200,000 children in northern Uganda and Southern Sudan. Sam Childers-a fighter and a preacher (some call him a mercenary)-tirelessly leads a small militia into the jungle, daring to fight against a vicious army outnumbering him one thousand to one. One man can make a huge difference. Sam Childers certainly does. — Peter Fonda, actor/filmmaker, best known as star of Easy Rider

The Reverend Sam Childers has been a very close friend to the government of South Sudan for many years and is a trusted friend. — President Salva Kiir Mayardit of South Sudan

The Reverend Sam Childers is a long time devoted friend to our government and his courageous work is supported by us. — President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda

Sam Childers is one of those rare men who is] willing to do literally whatever it takes to promote the message of Jesus Christ and save children from the tyranny of evil men. — John Rich, lead singer and songwriter, Big & Rich
