First Look blog tour for Divine Collision by Jim Gash @Worthypub @Jim_Gash #DivineCollision
Los Angeles lawyer and law professor, Jim Gash, tells the amazing true story of how, after a series of God-orchestrated events, he finds himself in the heart of Africa defending a courageous Ugandan boy languishing in prison and wrongfully accused of two separate murders. Ultimately, their unlikely friendship and unrelenting persistence reforms Uganda's criminal justice system, leaving a lasting impact on hundreds of thousands of lives and unearthing a friendship that supersedes circumstance, culture and the walls we often hide behind.
There is no greater love than laying down your life for a friend. This profound love seeps through every page of Jim and Henry's story, like a healing balm. Over the last several years I have had the great privilege of witnessing Jim's passion for Ugandan people and his willingness to lay down his own life for others. Divine Collision will remind you once again how one small gesture of love can make a monumental impact on a person for eternity.
Jim Gash lives in Malibu, California and is a Professor of Law and Director of Pepperdine's Global Justice Program. He serves as Specialist Advisor to the Ugandan High Court and assists the Ugandan government in a variety of capacities on projects relating to improving Uganda's judicial process. In March of 2013, Professor Gash became the first American ever to argue a case in the Ugandan Court of Appeals. In recognition of his ongoing work in Uganda, he received the 2013 Warren Christopher Award, which is presented to California's International Lawyer of the Year.
I received a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's Review- A powerful read. The author kept my attention and heart all through the story. I would highly recommend this book to older youth and adults. So much happens all over the world and this story is very touching. People should also do more in the USA as well because right in our own backyards the worst is happening. While I would never compare my country to another, I am simply stating that by fixing our own and making it stronger we will be able to really help others.
