In 1963 America’s most famous atheist, Madeline Murray O’Hair, won the landmark lawsuit filed on behalf of her son William, that effectively banned prayer in public schools. Nearly two decades later, that boy left his tumultuous childhood, grew up and in a miraculous turn of events gave his life over to Jesus Christ.
His book, My Life Without God has just been re-released 50 years after the banning of prayer in public schools, and he talks about God’s grace in this journey from despair to everlasting love. Today, William J. Murray is an advocate who speaks out against the persecution of Christianity in America and around the world as chairman of the Religious Freedom Coalition, a non-profit organization in Washington, D.C., and is active on issues related to aiding Christians in Islamic and Communist nations and founded ShariaFreeUSA.org.
