Description

"The story is as emotional as it is thrilling, and it reads like a major film." - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY Jim Gash's comfortable life as a Los Angeles lawyer and law professor nearly ensured that he and Henry, a Ugandan boy languishing in prison for two murders he didn't commit, would never meet. Henry was losing hope and prayed for a sign from God. Halfway around the world, Jim listened to best-selling author of Love Does, Bob Goff, encourage lawyers to use their legal training to help imprisoned children in Africa. Jim felt an irresistible urge to respond to this call. Little did Henry know, his prayer had been answered. Divine Collision tells the first hand, true story of how Jim and Henry, separated not only by an ocean and thousands of miles, but also differing cultures and life experiences, inspired justice reform for an entire country. Divine Collision is a fast-paced thriller and will keep you listening, wanting to know what happens next for Henry and Jim.

Professional reviews

"Brandon Batchelar and Jason White's narration is so powerful that it may make listeners want to join the author in his quest for justice in a faraway land. When Los Angeles lawyer Jim Gash hears about children who are falsely accused of crimes and imprisoned for years without a trial, he believes his discovery is Divine Providence, so he travels to Uganda to effect change. As Gash tries to positively influence the nation's criminal justice system, Batchelar's compelling delivery allows listeners to see the Ugandan landscape and experience the joys and sorrows of its people. Batchelar is especially endearing as he portrays Gash's tendency to weep when emotionally moved. Equally engaging is Jason White's portrayal of a Ugandan boy named Henry, who recounts his extraordinary life. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
