Author Biography

Rami Kivisalo, a former gangster, found Christ in prison. After many temptations, falls, and failures, he left his violent and sinful past and became an evangelist and disciple of Jesus. His memoir, Gangsterin Testamentti, was published in his native Finland in 2008 and quickly became a national bestseller. His story has been covered extensively by Finnish mainstream and Christian media. Currently working as a security consultant, Rami splits his time between South Africa and Finland, where he resides with his family. Marko Joensuu is the editor of both Revival Times, a monthly Christian magazine, and The Coronet Review, a quarterly film paper where he regularly interviews film directors, actors, and other industry professionals. With experience as a journalist, staff writer, media planner, and researcher, Marko helped set up Christian TV programs for SKY, a British satellite TV platform. In 2000, he moved to head the publishing division of Kensington Temple, one of London's largest churches. He lives in London with his family.
