Peter Johnson had only one wish; he wished to be a teacher again. There was one problem though, he was a beggar and nobody was going to ever employ him again. On the other side of town, the wealthy Atkinson family had a problem of their own; a problem no money could solve.
Both Peter and the Atkinsons saw their redemption in a miracle event that was coming to town. Their paths crossed when a heavy thunderstorm interrupted people’s efforts to get tickets for this event. When the beggar offered to queue for them in exchange for a ticket, Kathy Atkinson eagerly accepted his offer. As fate would have it, the Pastor who was to preside over the event was seriously injured in a car accident on his way there. As thousands of people started to leave in disappointment, the beggar became saddened at the commitment of their faith. Still dressed in his pitiable cloths, he decided to take matters in his own hands.
“You are so concerned in your own personal healing that you would not care if this whole world rots around you.” he shouted at them. Being the professional teacher he once was, he delivered a most powerful speech from the podium. Kathy Atkinson instinctively knew that there was a reason why her path had to cross with that of the beggar. She was not going to stop until she had found the reason for that.
Bruce Ashton, a highly acclaimed television producer who was to cover the event, became enthralled by the intellect of the beggar. So impressed was he with the man’s wisdom, that he planned to continue the events with him as a speaker. However, he was told by his bosses; ‘God does not sell, violence and sex is what’s bringing in the money.
However, Bruce Ashton saw his dream in the beggar. Risking his future as a producer while counting only on the wisdom of the beggar, he persuaded Peter Johnson to take up role in a TV program.
Peter, who considered himself as a victim of our corrupt society, was a man bothered in watching little children adulterated into a world of immorality by ever changing politically proposed guidelines; laws that had no significance besides protecting sin. Knowing this could be his last and only chance to be a teacher again, he cautiously accepted the offer. Together they started what was to become a very controversial crusade. The hobo’s life was never going to be the same again; nor the lives of those who would get involved with his. A Bullet for God is fast-paced, inspiring, motivating, and thought provoking.
