“Intended For Evil” is a deeply moving re-telling of a man’s suffering and survival in the killing fields of Cambodia during the reign of the Khmer Rouge. I have always loved true stories and reading ones like this remind me how blessed I am to live in a country that’s free. The things that Radha Manicham and his family went through under the regime of Communism were horrific – it’s a true miracle that one could keep their faith in God after living through such terror and fear. One can see the faithfulness of God through Radha’s story, and it’s both an inspiration and a challenge to read how people suffered through such circumstances. I would recommend this book to anyone who reads biographies and true stories, or, wishing to learn more about life under the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia. In fact, I would go a step further and say that even if you’re not interested in either the topic or the genre, read this book anyway. It’s an education as to what happens when Communism takes over a government and if you’re not familiar with the reality of what that means, this book will enlighten you. I for one, am more grateful for what I have after reading Radha’s story.
