When author Jesus C. Torres was growing up in El Salvador, he thought it was the best place in the world and that he would never want to leave. He was part of a large loving family and lived in a close-knit community. Christianity was on the rise. But then war came to the country and to his village.
In The Village’s Boy, Torres shares his story including details about his family, his step into Christianity, his baptism, and how he survived the horrors of the war that killed many. This memoir uncovers the hard reality of El Salvador’s twelve years of war, and at the same time tells how God’s intervention was manifested toward his people. Torres narrates how the pages of the Bible became alive in the midst of tragedy.
Containing important Christian messages and vignettes from Torres’ life, The Village’s Boy serves to inspire others faced with challenges to persevere and to find hope in Jesus Christ.
