Vinnie, Against All Odds PDF
What if you found out that angels were real?
What if you found out that demons were real?
What would the reality of those things mean to you?
Vinnie, Against All Odds is the story of an East Coast kid from a tough background who embraces the entire counterculture movement of the day. Because of a parent's desire to get rid of him, he finds himself shanghaied into the U.S. Marine Corps. Still retaining his 'hippie" credentials, he and his fellow Marine buddies lead a dual life amongst the careerist leadership of the Corps.. Convinced that the alternate lifestyle he experienced prior to the Marines is superior to what they represent, he and his friends count the days until their release. Then, a huge portion of his belief system unravels during an anti-war demonstration in Washington DC. He and his buds see many U.S. flags ripped off their poles and thrown to the ground, and then be replaced by the flag of North Vietnam.
After many relationships and liaisons, he travels west alone and ends up meeting the girl of his dreams, a beautiful California surfer girl, whom he marries. After 3 plus years of an up and down marriage, she leaves him for what he thinks is a short separation. Little did he know what would ensue. Vinnie is about an average guy of the age who was generally walking around numb yet finds out that the greatest story ever told is true! Vinnie found out that God was not only real, but desired a personal relationship with him. Vinnie is about the power of that living God working in his life, guiding him to a state of utter brokenness and helping him come to terms with guilt, shame, and the pain of lost years searching for meaning. Then, fasten your seatbelts, because Vinnie then begins an exciting ride into not only coming to know God intimately, but being introduced to the supernatural realm.
