Set in the north of England, this book tells the remarkable story of how God transformed the life of a punk and football hooligan into one of devotion and service to Jesus.
This is a timely modern story of how God chooses sinners, any of us, and makes them into saints for his glory. David O’Brien was a least likely candidate for church leadership but God had his eye on him from his childhood amidst the ordinary working class culture of Greater Manchester.

David O’Brien lives in Blackpool with his wife Alison and son Josh. He serves as vicar of St Thomas’, Blackpool and the Diocese of Blackburn.
David’s early life had no clear direction, and was focused around punk rock and football. But then he had a surprising encounter with God that changed his life. He studied Theology on the Carlisle and Blackburn ordination training course at Moorlands College, Dorset and at the Nazarene Theological College, Manchester. Now he has been a vicar in the Church of England for eleven years.
