From a drug addict to a pastor, John Hanna lived a life of true hope. He overcame his addiction through the gospel of Jesus Christ. Being released from his bondage unleashed a renewed man. In The Beginning Starts at the End, author Caroline Guirgis, John’s sister, shares his story.
She tells how the grace of God redeemed John from the darkness of addiction and restored him into the light of Christ. The gospel of truth healed John and renewed him wholly. As a new creation, John expelled his lust for drugs and received the love of Christ. His love and compassion for people had no boundaries. He never judged or labeled a person because he understood the depth of their pain.
The Beginning Starts at the End chronicles the story of a man who came to the end of himself and found God. It narrates how John met people in their sufferings and gave them hope; he believed no one was too far gone for God’s reach. He was an ordinary man who became extraordinary through his tumultuous journey. John was the gift that kept on giving.
