Our topic: As a young man, Billy McCurrie experienced terrorism first hand when his father was shot dead. That lead him into violence ending up with a conviction and a term in the notorious Maze Prison in Belfast. However, his life was utterly turned around during his time locked up, when he became a Christian. After leaving prison, Billy retrained and today works as a Baptist minister in the North West of England. Using what he went through, Billy will address the topics of youth violence, revenge and terrorism, and the Christian answer to them.
Billy has been interviewed at various times and those are available on the Internet. One example is this film made by Extreme Dialogue: extremedialogue.org/stories/billy-mccurrie
