Stephen Lungu came to Stanford University to speak recently, and his testimony was one of the most moving testimonies I have ever heard in my entire life. I bought the book so that I could ask my friends to read it. I think the key to the testimony is that... most of the time, when Christians witness to other Christians, it is difficult to accept their perspective: Christians often get responses like, "it's easy for you to believe, you havn't suffered adversity", or "you simply believe because you were taught to believe when you were little." Mr. Lengu's testimony is nothing like this; from being abondoned as a small child and being taught by his environment to hate Christians, people, and God, he was able to turn his life around and see Jesus. Incredible evidence that Jesus is life-changing, and real, and the Savior.
Out of the Black Shadows is a gripping account of the amazing transformation of Stephen Lungo. The story takes you through his life from being a unloved, abandoned child, through his gang involvement to him becoming a world renowned evangelist. It is very encouraging to see what God can do in the lives of people. It is also a great book to understand about the lives of Africans and missionaries. I loved this book and have shared it with everyone I know.
