He Discovered God’s Hope in the Midst of Despair
by Paul Cowley

- A great book for anyone seeking powerful testimonies of redemption
- Paul Cowley shares his story of seeking purpose in all the wrong places
- Now working with rehabilitated prisoners, Paul’s book reflects his heart for second chances

Paul Cowley grew up in Manchester amid the chaotic world of his alcoholic parents. His early exposure to heavy drinking, explosive arguments and the unnerving aggression of his father led him into homelessness and crime. By seventeen he was behind bars. Years later, following a career in the army which ‘made a man of him’ yet ultimately failed to give him direction and purpose, Paul’s search for meaning resulted in an unexpected encounter with God that changed his life for ever. This remarkable and touching account of his early years, from thief to prisoner, soldier and, eventually, priest, should inspire anyone who feels their life is out of control. It is, by turns, a dramatic, traumatic and comic story, yet one that stands as a testament to how God offers hope to all who have the courage to respond.
