Out of the Darkness
Full Product Description
If you look at the 17 year old Anthony Gielty, and then the Anthony Gielty of today, you would not see the same person.
Back then you would have seen an up-and-coming boxing champion who was destined to end up in prison, which is exactly what he did after being convicted of attempted murder with a Samurai sword.
He was given 10 years in prison, some of which was spent in the prison's solitary confinement.
Two years later he was moved into another facility known as 'Scotland's Most Violent Prison' as he was simply too violent to contain where he was.
And then everything changed.
He discovered Christianity.
Diving into Bible studies, evangelistic outreach, Catholic mass and studies, and serving God, Anthony Gielty became a completely different person.
A person his 17 year old self would never have recognised.
Now he works to bring peace in Scotland, bridging the chasm between Catholics and Protestants, and working to bring peace a God's love to all he comes across.
His book is a powerful story of transformation, of discovering God, and of how God can completely change a life that anyone else would be considered a write-off.

At 19, he was placed in the most violent prison in Scotland. Anthony Gielty was viewed as too difficult a prisoner for the Scottish prison system.
A vicious thug, he terrorised his fellow inmates - until he met Christ.
Through a variety of forms of Christian spirituality, he became a changed man. Equally at home in a Bible study, an Evangelical service or a Catholic Mass, Anthony has worked tirelessly to bring Catholics and Protestants together across the sectarian divide in his native Scotland.
As he says, he is now driven by 'a passion for the lost and a passion for unity in the Church.'
