The Tank Man’s Son

by Mark Bouman with D.R. Jacobsen

You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.” Genesis 50:20

A promise that Mark was able to cling to when, as an adult, he met the Father of the fatherless. Son of an abusive, neo-nazi tyrant, Mark grew up controlled by propaganda, suffering frequent beatings, and a longing to be loved.

This is an incredible story about a life that could have had such a sad ending. Instead, God lifted him up out of his past and put Mark on an incredible journey as “Papa” to the fatherless (an orphanage in Cambodia) and father to two sons. It’s a beautiful memoir. At times, it can read a bit slowly, but overall, it sticks with you and qualifies as a must read.

Thank you, Tyndale, for sending me this wonderful book! As always, this is my honest opinion. Here’s to many more!
