Description


This fast-paced, compelling and chilling account, is the deeply moving story of a three-times Kung Fu World Champion. With fascinating insight into the traditions of China's martial arts, it documents the abusive upbringing that turned a four-year-old child into a hardened, professional killer.



From China to Europe and across the Meditarranean, we follow Tony as he becomes an elite bodyguard, protecting some of the world's most powerful people.



Following personal tragedy, Tony's extreme discipline and the philosophy of his art is quickly turned. He begins to use his skills for illegal means and highly destructive, bloodthirsty pleasure.



Eventually incarcerated in jail in Cyprus, Tony hits rock bottom. Through the visits of a stranger, he is introduced to the reality and life-changing power of Jesus Christ. Though the prison walls hold him, he finds himself a free man. This is just the beginning of a complex and fascinating testimony.

Amazing and well-written autobiography! Wouldn't recommend for younger audiences
Brilliant writing, and very exciting redemption story. This book made me praise God! Not for younger audiences though since Tony Anthony describes a pretty immoral life prior to becoming a Christian.

Outstanding
Interest level: 5. The kind of book you want to listen to again right after you are done. It's that interesting!

Spiritual content: 4. A seemingly complete conversion of a hardened man, into a disciple of Jesus.

Content: First gripping, then gruesome, then glorifying. The transitions through his life are eye opening, and it's fun to see what God can do. Not kid friendly due to violence of content, particularly when in prison.

Narration: 5.

Fantastic
Don't quit. At first you are wondering if this came from Christian audio and then the kung fu is like "really" but then when he finds Christ. Wow. Fantastic
