Author Nathan Schnackenberg grew up as an American missionary kid in Japan, until he was uprooted in a return to the United States in 1993. Culture-shocked, he ended up in Las Vegas, of all places, where he gradually abandoned his faith and fell into a spiraling quest for money, power and pleasure. He found all three and enjoyed them immensely—until his life of sin escalated to the point of murder. Schnackenberg bottomed out and ended up empty, alone, scared and fearing for his life. He made a choice. He cried out for God. And God answered. In this recklessly true story about one man’s abandonment and rediscovery of God—and of his acceptance of a very real freedom in Christ—Schnackenberg poses a challenge to every believer. Which path will you take? Abandonment to God? Or from Him?
