Born into an ordinary protestant family in Belfast during the 1950s, David Hamilton’s formative years were shaped by The Troubles. Inevitably, David’s life was changed by the violence that surrounded him. He became involved with a terrorist organisation and ended 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 path but has found new life and a new cause for which it's really worth living.
David's account of his life before he became a Christian includes some stories that may not be suitable for younger readers.
