Full Product Description

‘Storming Home’ is the life story of Billy Gilvear – a self-destructive hard man, celebrity bodyguard and boozer whose life was utterly transformed into a Baptist Minister, prison Chaplin, the Regional Director for the Eden Project and born-again Christian.

The strict upbringing as the son of a missionary meant Billy always wanted to escape his childhood faith. As soon as he hit 16 years old he enrolled in the Army and despite being bullied he flourished as a young solider, receiving a fast-track commission. He then met a young corporal called Bev and soon they entered married life together.

A bold career move from the Army into bodyguard work took him from dangerous war zones into the temptations of the celebrity world. He guarded:
•   Naomi Campbell
•   Take That
•   The Bee Gee’s
•   Arnold Schwarzeneggar
•   Mel Gibson
•   and more

Surrounded by the celebrities lifestyle introduced him to drugs which led to befriending gangsters and dealing to others. His new lifestyle brought with it a destructive tendency which eventually lost him his job, his marriage and his children. For Billy, suicide was his only escape… but God had other plans. Through a friend Billy rediscovered the God he had pushed aside, forgotten and ridiculed for the past 30 years.

As a result: Bev encounter Christ, they reconciled, remarried, had two more children and become Christians. Now Billy has become a Baptist Minister, prison Chaplin and evangelist, helping others find Christ as he so miraculously did.

Publisher's Description

Son of a missionary, born in the Congo, Billy endured a strict upbringing before escaping to the Army at 16. Despite the brutality and bullying he survived and did well, being fast-tracked for a commission. He met and married Bev, herself a corporal.

Billy soon quit the Army to become a bodyguard to the stars, working with Naomi Campbell, Take That, Bee Gees, Arnold Schwarzeneggar, Mel Gibson and others. Billy had always been a drinker but now the celebrity lifestyle introduced him to drugs - dealing, and running with gangsters. He lost his job. Bev and the children suffered his evil temper, and Bev ultimately divorced him.

Billy contemplated suicide, but Christ intervened. A friend reintroduced him to the God he had hated for 30 years. Bev too encountered Christ: the two would be reconciled, remarry, and have two more children. Now a Baptist pastor, prison chaplain and evangelist, Billy sees in others the miracle that has taken place in himself.
