Divine Collision

Jim Gash. Worthy, $21.99 (300p) ISBN 978-1-61795-671-3

Los Angeles lawyer Jim Gash tells his amazing story of how a fellow lawyer, Bob Goff, invited him to make a difference in Uganda by helping children who were imprisoned there. Gash didn’t want to go to Africa, and yet something inside began to stir. He shares his experiences of being in danger while traveling in Uganda, meeting Henry—a 16-year-old boy wrongly accused of murder—and then the series of miraculous events that unfold over a period of five years. Gash unashamedly explains how his personal faith was tested time and again, and how Henry inspired him not to give up. Told chronologically, the story is as emotional as it is thrilling, and it reads like a major film. Gash and Henry are two unlikely friends, two eventual heroes, and two hearts that overcame the impossible to gain freedom and personal victory. Not only did Gash and his team secure freedom for Henry, Gash’s work in Uganda helped usher in change to their legal system to assure that all underage prisoners have a fair trial.
