Rev up and...off
These were the instructions given to David Collyer at the start of his unorthodox ministry as chaplain for a club for the unclubbable Rockers, Hell's Angels and Mods in Birmingham

A fantastic story
How he avoided being killed or maimed for life and yet persisted in his love and duty to these violent young is nothing short of miraculous

No punches are pulled
Murder, sex, drugs, death on the road, thieving, malicious damage, and all the turbulence of ignorant and undisciplined youth are the scene. No attempt was made to preach or to moralize. The author literally became 'one of them'. But throughout the narrative there is a response to a religious need and a will to service for others which makes this not only a breathtaking but also a very moving book
