The Monster Within
Hells Angel To God’s Messenger
by Brian Greenaway
Publisher:CWR (Crusade for World Revival)
In his highly readable latest book, Brian Greenaway writes first about how his life began with his neglect as a child, leading to his becoming a violent ‘Hell’s Angel’, and to his imprisonment in Dartmoor. That’s where he became a Christian in 1973, much influenced by reading the Living Bible and Nicky Cruz. He describes things that happened afterwards, like study at Moorlands Bible College, but found God leading him to prison work and visiting. The ‘ex-con’ had become a ‘Rev’! He eventually became a member of the chaplaincy team at Wandsworth Prison. But he is frank about all the times when he realises the ‘monster’ is still there, beneath the surface. Writing this autobiography coincides with his retirement after 32 years of ministry: but Brian and his wife know that ‘God has a new ministry for us just round the corner, which we believe could be with hurting people, including those who have been hurt by the Church.’ He writes ‘I am excited by the prospect of a new direction and the tremendous privilege of continuing to serve such a wonderful God.’
