The Redemption Of An African Warlord

Full Product Description

Once described as one of Liberia’s most feared warlords, General Butt Naked was radically transformed into a charismatic evangelist reaching out to those he mutilated and radicalised. ‘The Redemption of an African Warlord’ is his shocking, but redemptive story.

Beginning life as a pagan priest in a local tribe, he transformed himself into a notorious warlord naming himself General Butt Naked. He forced children away from their families to join his war, performed human sacrifices and led hundreds of child soldiers for his cause.

His unsettling story is startlingly reminiscent of Paul (formally known as Saul). The General met face to face with Jesus, was transformed and completely changed from murder to preacher. The reformed warlord now travels preaching the redemptive power of the gospel, reaching out to the very same people here terrorised years ago. 

His bone-chilling, true-life story will reveal the troubling realities of African tribal culture, civil war and child soldiers. But at the same time reveal God’s heart for Africa and his willingness to redeem and use sinners.

About the Author

Deeply embedded in African spiritual culture, General Butt Naked believed that by going into battle naked he and his child soldiers would be protected from bullets, hence his name.

Joshua Milton Blahyi had a life-changing vision when Jesus Christ appeared to him as a blinding light and told him that he would die unless he repented of his sins. He repented and is now consumed with seeing Jesus glorified. He is president of End Time Train Evangelistic Ministries with headquarters in Liberia, and Joshua Blahyi Ministries headquartered in the United States.

Publisher's Description

One man’s journey from feared warlord to apostle of Christ.

Joshua Blahyi grew up in Africa, became a powerful pagan priest in a local tribe, and then became one of the most feared warlords in Liberia. Under demonic influence, General Butt Naked fought and killed while he was naked; he personally sacrificed men, women, and babies, and forced children to abandon their families and fight with him.

Then, in a radical transformation like that of Paul on the road to Damascus, Joshua met Jesus face to face. His mission now is to reach out to others who are under evil’s delusions and reform the lives of his former soldiers, enemies of Jesus Christ, and anyone in need of hope and love.

Joshua Blahyi’s incredible story has been told in documentaries on PBS, CNN, BBC, and other media including the New York Times. His story appeals to everyone interested in foreign affairs, Africa’s mysterious spiritual culture, civil wars, Christianity, and child soldiers.
