||Foreword by Billy Graham
When a man of faith dares to stand in the streets of a large city where criminals lurk and lawlessness abounds, when he dares proclaim to those he encounters that Jesus Christ is the way of salvation for all men, miracles are going to happen.
Police Officer Al Palmquist is such a man who dares. In the midst of violence and crime, Al clothes himself with the armor of God, arms himself with the Word, and patrols his city as a true centurion.
This is the story of the amazing way in which God revealed His plan to one police officer. This is a story of miracles ... of a "Christ-centered proram so effective in rehabilitating devastated lives that law officers are beginning to catch the vision" and adopt different methods of dealing with crime in the streets. It is a dramatic story of changed lives.
I first met Al Palmquist in 1973 when he was assigned to my Team for security during one of our crusades in Minneapolis. I rode in his squad and caught a glimpse of the awesome responsibilities that rest with those who enforce the law and protect our society from those who would destroy it. He gave his testimony at one of the meetings during that cru?sade and some 30,000 people thrilled to hear the story of his mission.
Al is a man of profound faith and courage, a man of compassion for his fellow man, and a man of conviction that their needs must be met through the saving power of Jesus Christ. He is a man of determination and action.
Through the pages of this unique book, God speaks to those in positions of authority. He speaks to parents and to young people. He speaks to all who have experienced emotions of bitterness, loneliness and despair and to those who have become hopelessly ensnared in the insidious web of lawlessness and sin.
This is a book which gives clear-cut answers to perplexing questions and presents tangible solutions to desperate problems.
I praise God this story has been told, and I heartily and prayerfully recommend the reading of it.
