Violent Mexican gang hijacks U.S. evangelical’s book


ReligionNewsBlog.com • Saturday July 3, 2010

In one Mexican drug cartel, mandatory reading now includes an American evangelical’s best-seller, Religion News Service reports.

Drawing from an unlikely source, La Familia Michoacana (the Michoacan Family) bases part of its ideology on the book “Wild at Heart,” by John Eldredge of the Colorado Springs, Colo.-based Ransomed Heart Ministries.

Ironically, Eldredge sees the violent gang’s use of his book in a positive light.

“At first, I was really mad that they hijacked my book for their purposes,” he said. “But on second thought … maybe it will touch the hearts of the people who use (it).”
