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 firsthand, true story of how Jim and Henry, separated not only by an ocean and thousands of miles but also by 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.

"The story is as emotional as it is thrilling, and it reads like a major film." (Publishers Weekly)
This book was well written and very inspiring. It made me want to try harder to make a difference for others. Maybe not someone in Africa, but right where I am. I can start in my own home!
this story is inspiring, heart wrenching and personal. challenges you to be more open to what God sees as important in the world.
I loved hearing how God heard prayers on one side of the planet in what seems an impossible, hopeless situation and answers those prayers by touching and moving someone from the other side of the planet. Even when it was just to comfort His faithful hurting.
The overall story of Jim Gash, California lawyer, and Henry, Ugandan teen accused of murder, breaks your heart but also gives you hope. It is a "page turner" of a book and a story full of emotion and faith that is narrated excellently- high performance. I highly recommend this book to people of all ages who are interested in real stories from a third world country that show caring compassion by American lawyers. The love of Christ is evident in this story.
It would be almost impossible to put in to words how this book made me feel. It was gripping, I finished it in one day. It honestly changed my entire outlook on life and has made me want to become a better person. I normally don't really read / listen to none fiction but I made an exception for this and I am so glad I did... If I was told I could only take one book with me this would be it.
