How One Man Made a Difference
Kevin Annett5.0 out of 5 starsBeating the Odds and Making a DifferenceMarch 3, 2016Format: PaperbackThis book is the ultimate David and Goliath saga. It is written with passion and eloquence both as an autobiography and an historical account of the movement that forced the truth of Genocide in Canada into the light of day. The author was an insider in one of the churches that ran the infamous and lethal Indian residential schools where, by the Canadian government’s own admission, thousands of children died. (New York Times, June 3, 2015) His expulsion from that body after surfacing stories by survivors of the local residential schools led him to document and make public the hard evidence of crimes in the schools: an account which has just been published in a separate Amazon title, “Murder by Decree: The Crime of Genocide in Canada”. Against all the odds, the author was able to finally force Canada to admit some of its wrongdoing and even issue a formal “apology” for the residential school malfeasance. The real power of “Unrelenting” lies not only in its authenticity but how it allows the reader to share the deeply personal and spiritual transformation the author underwent during his long and lonely twenty year struggle in the face of enormous loss and persecution. This book is a masterful and inspiring example of how truth can ultimately triumph against enormous odds, and how one man can indeed make a difference.
