“David Carr teaches us about love, forgiveness, obedience and determination … simply put, a compelling story of God’s unmerited grace and favour.”
CYRILLE REGIS MBE
David Carr’s colourful life story is inspiring, challenging and entertaining in equal measure as we accompany him on this rollercoaster ride from Bouncer to Bishop. He takes us on an incredible journey: From a young man with chronic phobias to a hardened bouncer working in private security; Through conversion to Christ and on to pioneering a church from scratch that has grown to be the largest in the Heart of England; After being healed of dyslexia he built a career in the financial services industry, managing the affairs of more than 700 of the UK’s top footballers; To witnessing many miracles and supernatural interventions of God – particularly in the area of healing; To founding the Order of St Leonards which, though it only began in 2009, has spread through the UK, Eastern Europe and parts of Africa and now numbers many thousands of affiliated churches.
Illuminated on the pages of this book, told in Bishop Dave’s typical self-effacing style, laced with Brummie humour, is the truth that God can accomplish much with simple obedience and a willingness to step out and take a risk.
