Out of the Black Shadows
Full Product Description
"Out of the Black Shadows" tells of Stephen Lungu's amazing transformation from a homeless urban gang member to a converted follower of God.
At the age of 11, Stephen was confined to the streets of Zimbabwe, where he found shelter under bridges and fed himself via the dustbins of white people. Within a few years, Stephen had joined a dangerous gang known as the Black Shadows. Stephen learned how to burgle, mug and intimidate the local people.
Then came the incredible, God-inspired transformation of Stephen Lungu. When an evangelist arrived in the area, Stephen was immediately tasked with bombing the event, but instead chose to stay amongst the crowd and listen to the evangelist's inspiring words. Since this point, Stephen has been inspired to become a Christian and a respected Evangelist.
Stephen Lunge has been referred to as the 'African Billy Graham' and has become an international evangelist who often tours great venues in Europe and America. Stephen uses his book, "Out of the Black Shadows," to discuss his life experiences as a gang member and as an inspirational evangelist.
Out of the Black Shadows by Anne Coomes; Stephen Lungu was published by Lion Hudson in July 2006 and is our 4672nd best seller. The ISBN for Out of the Black Shadows is 9781854247728.

Out of the Black ShadowsAlice Collins, via The Good Book Stall
The extraordinary testimony of Stephen Lungu is proof positive that – as the blurb says - fact is stranger than fiction. Beaten by his aunts, abused by his father and abandoned by his mother, the young Stephen sleeps on the streets for years, along with members of his violent gang known as the Black Shadows. Living in a black township near Sailsbury, Zimbabwe, Stephen becomes catastrophically enmeshed with the political upheaval of the times when, on one particularly bloodstained night, God calls him to evangelism. While I wasn’t able to put down parts of Stephen’s story, I did struggle occasionally with the political background and was distracted by minor but irritating editorial errors. Some might argue that these are part of the book’s particular charm. Also, as Stephen didn’t have the chance for a 'proper' education, and only learnt to read and write in his teens, this spiritual thriller is breaking boundaries by being written at all! I defy you not to cry when you uncover the truth behind Stephen’s conversion. While not wanting to give too much away, the ending impressed upon me that God does always listen to his people even if He doesn’t always put it in lights, or in Stephen’s case, fire bombs. So take care when you pray, for - as the saying goes - God works in mysterious ways . . .
