We are all ambushed by life at some point.

The Apostle Paul saved Wil Tustin’s life. Tustin had been teaching others about Paul’s journey for years but when he was struggling with a life threatening illness, he found a purpose by creating a voice for Paul in his new book Ambushed.

Ambushed is the story of the Apostle Paul’s life from his early childhood, through his darkest times and how he was able to change his fate through perseverance and faith. The story begins with 10-year-old Saul, when bandits ambush him and his father. The first person narrative continues through Paul’s life, from being the persecutor to becoming the persecuted.

“When I was ambushed by a life threatening illness, I struggled with a deep depression as a side effect of the medication I was taking,” says Tustin. “I found new purpose in my research and writing of this book. I wanted to devote my limited energy to studying someone's life who persevered and overcame their daily struggles.”

While Tustin has read and appreciated previous books written on Paul’s life, Ambushed is original in its first person approach. Tustin wanted to make Paul’s life and lessons more accessible to both the devout and secular alike, giving readers a chance to metaphorically walk beside Paul as he faces tremendous challenges and how he overcomes them.

“We are all ambushed by life at some point,” Tustin notes. “I hope that through sharing Paul’s ultimate triumph over his challenges, others will see hope for themselves.”
