"I've been paid to kill you."
When Denny Nissley came to Christ, he did not know what God would call him to do or how many times his life would be threatened for doing it.
Once a drug addict and alcoholic leading a life of crime, Denny Nissley is now a bold evangelist on the streets of America. As a young man he found forgiveness and healing and began a life dedicated to telling others the Good News of Christ. But he never guessed what was in store for him. He has been shot at, thrown in jail, threatened with knives, and beaten for his fearless conviction to take the love of Jesus to where it's most desparately needed and hardest to find. What drives him on? What gives him the strength to face such threats? This thrilling and inspiring story follows Nissley from his remarkable conversion to his continued ministry and the birth of his evangelistic organization, Christ in Action.
