Product Description

Like a modern-day Saul of Tarsus, Joshua Blahyi persecuted and terrorized innocent men, women and children as a feared high priest and warlord in Liberia. Under dark spiritual influences he sacrificed innocent people to demonic powers. Then, in a radical transformation, Joshua met Jesus face to face as the scales fell from his eyes and he recognized Jesus Christ as the true Lord of all. His new mission is to reach out to others who are under the influence of evil and reform the lives of his former soldiers, enemies of Jesus Christ and anyone in need of hope and love.

Publisher's Description

From being a priest in the kingdom of darkness to an evangelist in the
kingdom of light—this true story will shock and amaze you!

Jesus Christ appeared to Joshua Blahyi as a blinding light and told him that he would die unless he repented of his sins.

Joshua Blahyi grew up in Africa, became a powerful pagan priest in a local tribe, and then became one of the most feared warlords in Liberia. Under demonic influence, General Butt Naked fought and killed while he was naked; he personally sacrificed men, women, and babies, and forced children to abandon their families and fight with him.

Then, in a radical transformation like that of Paul on the road to Damascus, Joshua met Jesus face to face. His mission now is to reach out to others who are under evil’s delusions and reform the lives of his former soldiers, enemies of Jesus Christ, and anyone in need of hope and love.

Joshua Blahyi’s incredible story has been told in documentaries on PBS, CNN, BBC, and other media including the New York Times. His story appeals to everyone interested in foreign affairs, Africa’s mysterious spiritual culture, civil wars, Christianity, and child soldiers.


Author Bio

 At age 11, Joshua Blahyi became the high priest of the entire Krahn tribe, a tribe given to violence and human sacrifice. In his late teens and early twenties, he was one of the most infamous and feared warlords in all of Africa leading an army of child soldiers in the Liberian Civil War. Today, after a road to Damascus type conversion experience, he is Evangelist and Pastor Joshua Blahyi, ministering to ex-combatants, former child soldiers, and other victims of this brutal civil war. He also ministers to thousands in crusades throughout West Africa and serves as a pastor in a local church in Monrovia, Liberia.

    The realities of politics and demonic activity is explicitly expressed in this book. This book provides much fodder to support the notion that evil or demonic powers influence political outcomes that could be altered or even stopped by the prayers and obedience of believers. I have not fully grasped what the writer is saying about demonic influences in this book. I have found this book to be one of those books that I need to read multiple times before I grasp the interaction between prayer and demonic activity in the home, the city, nation and the world.

    In "The Redemption of An African Warlord" Joshua Blahyi begins by carefully developing the history background, and culture of the Sarpo-Krahn people, a warrior tribe who believed in conquest. As a child Joshua was trained to become a priest among his people; a people under the power and rule of Nyagheaweh, who was dominated by the devil and his demonic cohorts.

    Within a short time Joshua Blahyi became the youngest and one of the most powerful warlords in Liberia. Empowered and motivated by demonic forces, he became feared for his reputation of terror, as he sacrificed men, women, and babies, and recruited children to fight with him.

    In a blinding light, similar to Saul/Paul on the road to Damascus, Jesus appeared to Joshua, with a message of repentance. Joshua changed his allegiance from demonic darkness to the light of Christ; received forgiveness, regeneration, and restoration. He is now a testimony of the Light of Jesus Christ reaching out with the message of hope and love, redemption and renewal.

    Joshua story is remarkable, a powerful testimony of the grace and power of God to change a life, overcome bondage to Satan, and use him to bring the message of Christ's forgiveness and redemptive power to those "lost" in the darkness of evil in Liberia, Africa.

    "The Redemption of An African Warlord: The Joshua Blahyi Story" will be of interest to everyone who has followed the troubled affairs of Africa, political, historical, and cultural. It will be of special interest to Christians with a prayer concern and World View of the expanding the Kingdom of God.
