Margaret Thatcher’s Press Secretary Forgives Bomber Who Almost Killed Him

Harvey Thomas was sound asleep in a hotel when a bomb planted by the Irish Republican Army exploded directly under him. He was catapulted through the roof of the building and buried under 10 tons of rubble.

As a follower of Jesus Christ, Harvey realized he needed to forgive the man who planted the bomb. How would the bomber respond to Harvey? 

Listen to Harvey’s riveting story of working for Margaret Thatcher, facing death and meeting the terrorist who almost killed him.
