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:
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.
Eminem is a clean non-threatening looking young American.
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.
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.
Through any problems he has had in live he has risen above the blackness that surrounded him. He is truly a Christian hero.
