Really enjoyed this wee book. Made me cry in parts cos I knew where he ws coming from. My daddy had a problem but never did anything about it. Well done to the author for being so brave as to to so honest. I have always believed in miracles, whether thay can be explained or not, the timing is always great
“Going for Broke on Jesus” is not a religious book in as much as stained glass windows, high church and ceremony is concerned. It is the true moving story of how a Glaswegian’s childlike faith in Jesus restored a broken home and turned beer bottles into furniture.
Bob Park was brought up in a Glasgow slum. He left school aged fourteen and served a five year apprenticeship as a Painter and Decorator before joining the Scots Guards on duty at Buckingham Palace. On leaving the Scots Guards he was a Prison Officer at Barlinnie Prison, Glasgow then a Police Officer. He left the Police and ended up in the gutter through alcohol abuse.
In the early nineties Bob founded the U.K. registered charity ROM-Aid International through which he transported some £12,000,000 (twelve million) of humanitarian aid to Romania over a sixteen year period. This resulted in the building of a new 'Accident & Emergency Department' for a local run down hospital, a 'Christian Community Centre' and a 'Hospice' for terminally ill HIV infected children.
