Tony Anthony is an international evangelist who has been ministering the Gospel of Jesus Christ for the last 20 years. Before his international ministry began, a fatal traffic accident and subsequent spiritual fall brought Tony to the personal discovery that GOD is a God of second chances. It was this ‘revelation’ that ultimately propelled Tony into his significantly fruitful evangelistic ministry.
Tony has a burning concern for the proclamation and spread of the Gospel around the globe which is coupled with a huge passion to equip others to do the same. Over the last 10 years he has travelled all over the world testifying to the miraculous transformation Jesus Christ has brought about in his life, whilst clearly proclaiming the Gospel message. He addresses many thousands of people every year, speaking wherever he is given the opportunity to share, which includes prisons, schools, universities, churches, concerts, small groups and city wide events. His testimony and communication of the Gospel are regularly reported as being captivating.
He has founded a number of Christian Ministries which focus on evangelism and discipleship training, mentoring and supporting others to do evangelistic work.
///// Autobiographical Book
With Angela Little as his co-writer, Tony Anthony is the author of Taming the Tiger, which is his real life “page turning and gripping story”, which won numerous Book of the Year awards in the biography category in 2005 and 2006.
With fascinating insight into the traditions of China’s martial arts, this fast paced, compelling and chilling read documents the abusive upbringing that ultimately turned a four-year-old child into a hardened, professional killer.
From China to Europe to North America, across the Mediterranean and on to the Middle East, we journey with Tony as he becomes an elite bodyguard, protecting some of the world’s most powerful people. Following personal tragedy, Tony’s extreme discipline and Martial Art philosophy quickly turn. He begins to use his skills for illegal means and highly destructive, bloodthirsty pleasure.
Eventually incarcerated in jail in Cyprus, Tony hits rock bottom and it is there through the visits of a stranger, he is introduced to the reality and life-changing power of Jesus Christ.
Though the prison walls hold him, he finds himself a free man. This is just the beginning of a complex and fascinating testimony.
Note to reader:
Since publishing his book, nearly 10 years ago, Tony has had the opportunity to discover some information about his family history, which he was unaware when first working on ‘Taming The Tiger’.
For example, as a very young boy he was raised to believe that the man in whose house he lived and who trained him in Kung Fu was his grandfather. It has since come to light that this individual was not his biological grandfather but a step relation. As a result Tony will soon be bringing out a new update of his story in 2014.
Due to the sinister and sensitive nature of Tony’s background he has had to exercise some caution in publishing his story. There are details given in the book which are presented with considered alteration to appropriately protect confidentiality. Revised editions include a clear disclaimer as follows:
“This book tells the true story of Tony Anthony. Some scenes have been dramatized with authentic though not necessarily actual dialogue, and-to protect the author and his family, and the rights of those whose paths he has crossed-some of the names, places, and details of the events have been altered.”
