Like many of us, Andrew Palau spent his growing-up years immersed in a selfish and self-centered life, numb to God and to the letters his evangelist-father wrote him. In The Secret Life of a Fool, Palau recounts his years of rebellion and reckless living-and the moment when the shame of his life collided with God’s relentless grace, changing everything.
It’s an unforgettably gutsy story, packed with honesty and hope for us all.
“Andrew’s is the story of a young man descending into a deep pit of hopelessness and despair, only to be rescued under the most ironic of circumstances.”
“If your minefield is drugs, alcohol, or doing everything you can to run away from God, then Andrew Palau is your guide. Trust him; he knows the way out.”
“This book has both guts and grace. Andrew Palau guides us through his story with such raw honesty-and yet all the dark moments and detours along the way are ultimately overshadowed by one thing: the beautiful grace of God.”
“Here is a story in which we can each see our own story and be encouraged.”
