Andrew Palau’s The Secret Life of a Fool is a book that we recommend for young readers, people who struggle with alcohol and drug addiction and perhaps for people too who were raised around the church but seems to have no sense of direction.
The Secret Life of a Fool: A Man’s Raw Journey From Shame to Grace is a no-holds-barred redemptive autobiography of Andrew Palau, son of the international evangelist Luis Palau. In this book, readers will witness how the mercy and grace of Jesus Christ rescued Andrew from the deep pit of hopelessness and despair. Despite living in a loving home with two role-model parent and a strong church that provided a strong backbone of faith, Andrew turned his back on them and pursue a destructive and selfish life for himself. For him, Christianity has no place in his life since it wasn’t about him. His god was himself and himself was the god he would serve. Andrew craved for social acceptance and popularity. He started taking drugs and drink alcohol as an adolescent and his consumption has only increased as he got older. It took many years before Andrew he eventually came to Christ after many years outside the faith. This book delivers a strong message that even being a wretch like him could find that there is freedom and life in Jesus Christ. The Secret Life of a Fool is Andrew’s story of running from God and the unforgettable, heart-healing grace that turned him back to God.
