    April 11, 2011 2:54 pm 60 comments

    Over a few week period we will be honoring ten of the greatest Christian heroes with a short 30 second read.

    In our First report we profiled Big Ben Rothlisberger
    This time around we profile a Christian warrior:

    History
    Marshall Bruce Mathers III, better known by his performing name Eminem, was born at the age of 9 months on October 17 1972. He is an American role model, actor, platinum selling musician, and respected corporate spokesman.

    Caucasian
    Eminem is a clean non-threatening looking young American.

    Christian Values
    Eminem is widely recognized for saving his city of Detroit and the US automobile industry with a brave and compelling advertisement for Chrysler during the 2011 super Bowl. He also recently recorded and appeared with Rihanna to highlight his support for domestic violence victims.

    Controversy
    His life has not all been a success. He has had his own trials and tribulations. His father abandoned the family when he was 18 months old, and he was raised solely by his mother in poverty. In 1991, Mathers’ maternal uncle, Ronald “Ronnie” Nelson, committed suicide via shotgun wound to the head. Mathers was very close to his uncle, and was devastated at his death.

    Redemption
    Through any problems he has had in live he has risen above the blackness that surrounded him. He is truly a Christian hero.
