Outlaw
The story of how I, Julian Carter, and my precious two-year old son, Stephen, left Atlanta Georgia and found ourselves on a white sailboat, tossed about like a cork on a raging sea off of Australia’s northern tip in 1963, is harrowing. But it pales in comparison to what happened deep in the jungle where I was taken as a slave by a savage tribe unknown to the world. Some places dwell in darkness so deep that even God seems to stay away. There, my mind was torn in two by the gods of the earth. There, one life ended so another could begin. Some will say I was a fool for making the choices I made. But they would have done the same. They, too, would have embraced death if they knew what I knew, and saw through my eyes. My name is Julian and this is my story. But more, it is the story of my son who was born to change the world.

Understanding The Book Of Job – Separating What Is True From What Is Truth
It is safe to say at the very least, that the Bible is a fascinating book. A book full of many true tales, even struggles and disappointments, along with much information intended to help people grow and mature in their relationship with God. After all, it is impossible to have a positive relationship with someone we have not gotten to know and this principal applies to all relationships including one with God.

However: many shy away from reading the Old Testament for various reasons, and one reason high on most peoples list is due to the “gloom and doom”.

The promises of God are still true today: “Anything is possible to him who believes!” So toss aside all the biblical head knowledge that so easily accumulates, and exchange it for simple child-like trust, mixed with faith in an all-powerful God. As you walk down this journey with K.P. Yohannan, learning from his own struggles and lessons, you too will grow to believe God despite what the eyes may see.
