Having been promoted to a senior leadership position in the Ulster Freedom Fighters, I was not satisfied with destroying my own life. I now possessed the authority to take others with me.
Born into abject poverty and lower working-class Belfast, Ireland, Kenny McClinton became as rough as the life he was forced to live. From a violent, drunken father to abusive boys homes, from the merchant navy to a sadistic prison, from terrorism to salvation... this is Kenny's remarkable and gut-wrenching story of how the Lord rescued him from a life not worth living.
After being discharged from the merchant navy, a shiftless Kenny was looking for a new way to fund his alcoholism. Instead he found purpose. His vices met their fullest potential when the Irish Republic Army (IRA) and the reactionary Ulster Freedom Fighters (UFF) first began their campaign. Caught up in the brotherhood of Northern Ireland nationalism, the street-smart scrapper soon rose to the top of the UFF. But one misstep sent Kenny to the bottom again.
Imprisoned side-by-side with his IRA enemies and UFF brothers, Kenny must fight. Fight for physical survival. Fight for political rights. Fight the mental demons that spurred him to such lengths that he was nicknamed The Maniac by prison guards. This is the story of Kenny McClinton, former terrorist, now an evangelist; once spreading death, now spreading life; once born to lose, now born again. Download and start listening now!
