Hardy to sign book at Holy Cross

Richard Hardy will be signing copies of his new book at Holy Cross Catholic Church in Atlanta on Sunday.

There will be two sessions - one at 9:30 a.m. and another at 11:30 a.m. Hardy, a resident of Tucker, is the author of 'God's Gladiator.'

'God's Gladiator' is the true story of a self centered, quick-witted, and determined German immigrant who climbed up the ladder in the U.S. business world. Along the way, he met the Ku Klux Klan and the powerful Odessa Nazi organization - and evaded a firing squad execution by fascists in Uruguay.

The Palestinian Liberation Organization also helped him escape Beirut during a brutal civil war when he was dressed as a Muslim warrior.

'God's Gladiator' is also also the human story of a man who turned around his life in prayer and faith using the teachings of the Desert Fathers and the church's sacraments. While serving on the finance staff of the Catholic Archbishop of Atlanta, he was commissioned a Stephen minister. Miracles would happen on his first visits to help a desperate man about to break down.
