Born into an ordinary protestant family in Belfast during the 1950s, David Hamilton’s formative years were lived out against the backdrop of the Troubles. Inevitably, David’s life was shaped by the violence that surrounded him. He became involved with a terrorist organisation, ending up with a hefty prison sentence. David believed that in fighting with the Ulster Volunteer Force he had found a cause worth dying for but, while in prison, David had an encounter that would change the whole course of his life.
This is the dramatic story of how David’s life has been completely transformed. He is no longer on that slippery, destructive and violent slope but has found new life and a new cause that’s really worth living for.
David's account of his life before he became a Christian includes some stories that may not be suitable for some readers.
In Davy’s account, the reader is brought vividly into his particular experience of the Troubles, and in the overwhelming need there was for the Lord’s power to change, heal and forgive. When Davy speaks of a “cause worth dying for”, it was something he truly believed of the violent struggle, and his story of gospel transformation is all the more powerful because of it. I found this book especially engaging because of how clear Davy’s voice is throughout. You hear his thoughts and speech, and get a real sense of his earthy humanity. His life was real, messy, and painful – perhaps in more explicit ways than ours, but fundamentally similar nonetheless. Whatever his sins, Davy came to know that Jesus paid the price, and that the gospel is the only cause worth “living for”. This is a message we all need to hear.
