I just read preacher Greg Laurie's little autobiography - Lost Boy - and it was pretty interesting.
Who is he?
He's a very popular Christian evangelical-type based out in California (see his website - Harvest Ministries). Being a life-long suffering *Northeast Catholic* I'd never before heard sermons like I first heard from him on the radio, down in Naples two years ago.
Greg had a rough life. He was born a bastard and had to endure the misadventures of his drunken whore mother; and he also was a stereotypical drug-abusing hippie - not exactly the conventional path one might expect of a world-renowned minister.
Now if I can only figure out who that other amazing Irish/British preacher was that I once heard on my car's AM/FM stereo...
