Josh McDowell was born in Michigan in 1939 and raised on a dairy farm.
The youngest of five children, he grew up in an unhappy, dysfunctional
home. His father was an alcoholic who often beat his grossly obese
mother; one sister committed suicide; another ran away from home; one
brother joined the army never to be heard from again; and the eldest
brother permanently broke all communication with his parents over a
property ownership dispute. Perhaps the greatest horror was reserved for
Josh himself, who was repeatedly abused sexually by a hired hand living
in their home. Josh McDowell lost his innocence at an early age.
Through his experiences, his heart grew hard, he and distanced himself
from God. But he would later find out that God does not abandon anyone -
even the most stubborn skeptics. Produced by Moonlit Pictures and DBM Films
