On the eve of his 70th birthday, John Bradford, one-time federal politician and passionate Christian recounts his multifaceted life story in this lively memoir. From high school captain to Vietnam conscript, Federal member of Parliament to overseas missionary, John reveals the challenges of life of public service, not shying away from sharing anecdotes about his more humbling moments, his fervent ideological views on issues of public significance, nor some of Australia’s more interesting and well-known political figures.
Readers will relish his descriptions of surfing the East Coast of Australia and overseas travels and appreciate his insights into the surf, retail, political and modern missionary worlds.
Ever the family man, the book is dedicated to his devoted wife, Judy, who has weathered the ups and downs by his side while raising their three accomplished children.
“18 years ago, I, and we in Legacy, (a Gospel Music Ministry) were privileged to meet John Bradford, as member of The Parliament of Australia. John has a real burden for ministry and The Lord has used both he and his sweet Judy in wonderful ways. His autobiography will be a blessing to all who read it.”
