The Fire Catcher: A Declaration of Grace presents the true story of author M. T. Arnold, who overcame a troubled childhood to become a US Army security agent, Indiana’s volunteer of the year, and an accomplished businessman. As he recalls in his memoir, the road to success was anything but easy.
After a tour in Vietnam, Arnold came home to ﬁnd the world he left signiﬁcantly changed—his childhood home gone, his family split apart, his personal belongings scattered. But he remembered the promise he made to serve God if he returned safely from battle—as well the promises to buy a sports car, travel, and return to college. He managed to keep all his promises but one—serving God. A drug arrest and dashed career hopes, however, led him to ﬁ nally keep that most important promise.
Even as he vowed to follow the narrow path of Christianity, his past and present soon collided. He found himself struggling to live up to his faith and tell the truth about his past, including a dark secret he had kept for many years.
This memoir follows Arnold’s journey in his quest to become one of God’s warriors, only accomplished by letting life’s ﬁ res draw him closer to God and nearer to amazing grace.
