Amazon Says: Josh McDowell grew up in a dysfunctional family with a violent, alcoholic father and a sexually abusive caregiver. These experiences left McDowell with a lifetime of scars that drove him away from God. Eager to deny the existence of a savior, McDowell sought out conflict with the Christians he encountered in college. He mocked their beliefs and scorned their faith until they issued him a challenge: prove God doesn't exist. Obsessively, McDowell travelled the world in search of evidence contradicting Christianity. What he found instead was faith a faith that led to grace and redeemed a broken man. Undaunted is a true-life docudrama depicting how Josh McDowell set out to prove Jesus Christ never existed but ended up an apostle. His work with the Campus Crusade for Christ has allowed him to spread the gospel to over ten million young people, and he's published over 70 books in the field of Christian Apologetics, including More Than a Carpenter and Evidence That Demands a Verdict. He is a true fisher of men. less...

The Powerbroker follows Young as he shuttles between the streets of Harlem and the boardrooms of Fortune 500 companies, tying the needs of Main Street to the interests of Wall Street. In the Oval Office, Young advised Presidents Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon and guided each along a path toward historic change.
