Billy McCurrie tells of how he became a Christian

I've always appreciated hearing from Billy McCurrie, minister of Aughton Park Baptist Church in Ormskirk. Rev McCurrie is a former Ulster Volunteer Force terrorist who dramatically became a Christian during his time in the Maze Prison in Northern Ireland. As I've heard him tell his story before, I've been reminded of God's abounding grace that can change any heart, even a heart as bitter as Billy's.

Rev. McCurrie has just been confirmed as a speaker for a lunchbar at Lancaster University next term where he'll be speaking on Why God forgives terrorists like me. As a preview, you can hear him telling his story on YouTube (NB video quality is poor for the first few seconds):
