Full Product Description
Mike McDade began life in rages, found his riches and then decided to give it all up so he could pick up the dog collar. This Baptist Minister has an amazing story to tell, proving God’s transformative power over our life.
His early years were haunted by the broken home he grew up in. Deciding to go it alone, a young Mike McDade ran away from his family, his school and his broken future. Years later Mike owned a shiny Rolls Royce, a wonderful home, several properties abroad and an overflowing bank account. But God had better plans for this runaway.
He turned his back once again on his life, running away from the riches he built, to become a Baptist Minister. Having served in several community churches (including Bradford, Warrington in the horrors of the IRA bombing), Mike has countless stories to tell how God can transform your life and the life’s of those around you.
This auto-biographical book will fill you to overflowing with inspiration as you discover for yourself God not only does the unexpected, he also does the un-imaginable too.

Runaway, Red Beret, And ReverendMelanie Carroll, via The Good Book Stall
A short (under 130 pages) but strangely satisfying testimonial biography that although authored by John Alexander is largely told directly in the words of Mike McDade, a man that in his life has gone through the hardship of growing up in a troubled family, running away and living rough from the age of 14 until he joined the army, then after that left, got married, dabbled slightly on the wrong side of the legal in his pursuit of money and comfort and in the end came to find God, Christ and the Baptist church against all odds – well all odds except God's grace, power and calling in his life that is!
Mike McDade has served in a number of places in the UK as Baptist Minister, places like Warrington during the Warrington bombing, violent area's of London and finally the more rural area of Cambridgeshire. In all these places it has been quite apparent that God was at work through the actions of Mike and through the small and wonderful miracles that occurred in Mike’s life. The author, and indeed Mike himself, admits some might find these things too much to believe and acknowledge that is a choice for each reader to make, just as it is a choice for each person to accept and acknowledge such miracles that might occur in their own lives. For me this was the real lesson at the heart of this book – that if God has a calling on your life ( and I believe he does on all our lives!) then there is no escape from it – God's Will will happen if we just allow it and that is the remarkable story of faith that shines through in Mike McDades life and in this book.

Growing up in a broken home, Mike McDade decided he wanted to be rich and found his own dubious way of achieving this, despite leaving school with no qualifications and living on the streets. He had a Rolls Royce, a large house and holiday homes, yet, despite resisting at every turn, Mike left behind his flash lifestyle to become a Baptist minister. Mike has served in Bradford, Warrington (at the time of the IRA bomb attack), London and Cambridge and in each of these places he has left a deep impression. His unique life history has enabled him to get alongside and minister to those whom few others could reach.
Inspiring confirmation that God can help us to accomplish more than we can ask for or imagine.
