Why I gave up religion: Vijay Menon
Mr Vijay Menon has converted literally thousands of people to Christianity – but himself became a Christian 'by chance'. A Hindu from Kerala in India, he was such an exceptional ship's engineer that he secured a job with Lloyd's Register. One lunchtime he followed a City crowd into a building – and found to his horror it was a Church! The Rev. Dick Lucas's sermon converted him – 'I had discovered the sweet and wonderful world of forgiveness' he was later to write in his Only One God. Vijay became so busy with his world-wide 'talk ministry' to schools, colleges, Churches and other businessmen that he resigned from Lloyds as a senior engineer surveyor in 1998 to become a full-time Evangelist.
