An Ordinary Man Living An Extraordinary Life
John Edwards is an ex drug addict and an alcoholic. He has known what it is like to be homeless, to be unnoticed and to be ignored. John Edwards is now a Christian who has been clean and in recovery for twenty two years. He dedicates his life to helping other addicts and homeless people. Together with his wife Tricia they have opened their arms, their hearts and their home to the lost, the hurting and the ignored. John believes “It’s not about me or us; our life needs to be about others.”
John Edwards talks honestly within his book. He talks about God and the desire for us all to know Him. “I qualified for Heaven because of Jesus Christ’s sacrifice.” This desire has meant John has done amazing things to reach others. He has walked all over Britain, Ireland and America carrying an eleven foot cross, a lightweight coffin and a five foot syringe… although not all at the same time. “People do not so much see me but they see the cross.” These are all starting points for conversations.
