9781780780177: Runaway, Red Beret, and Reverend: The Remarkable Story of Mike McDade

A runaway becomes a wealthy businessman and is transformed into a Baptist minister, not so much through his own determination as through the will of God and the belief and prayers of the Christians around him. Growing up in a broken home, Mike McDade decided he wanted to be rich and found his own dubious way of achieving this, despite leaving school with no qualifications and living on the streets. He had a Rolls Royce, a large house and holiday homes, yet, despite resisting at every turn, Mike left behind his flash lifestyle to become a Baptist minister. Mike has served in Bradford, Warrington (at the time of the IRA bomb attack), London and Cambridge and in each of these places he has left a deep impression. His unique life history has enabled him to get alongside and minister to those whom few others could reach. Inspiring confirmation that God can help us to accomplish more than we can ask for or imagine. Read a sample chapter chapter

Product Description:

The Remarkable story of Mike McDade. 'Academically, you're useless, you should not be here.' This criticism from a tutor was not what Mike McDade would have chosen to recall on the day he became a Baptist Minister. It made him wonder, 'Hasn't someone, somewhere, made a huge mistake?' As a small boy hs ambiton was just 'to be rich'. After spending his teens on the streets he discovered a talent for wheeler-dealing which allowed him to create his own business, buy expensive cars and holiday homes. Now married to Pat he wanted nothing more, not Christianity. So how did he end up and ordained minister? But this was God's plan for Mike McDade.

About the Author:

John Alexander is a retired journalist and former manager of the Keep Sunday Special campaign.
