I've been a fan of Nick Vujicic since the first time I saw him on a YouTube video. Attending one of his Life Without Limits events and getting to experience his hugs made me an even bigger fan; so I was really pleased to have the opportunity to review his forthcoming book UNSTOPPABLE: The Incredible Power of Faith in Action (WaterBrook Press, 2012)
Unstoppable is Nick’s story: born without arms or legs; fortunate enough to be born into a loving family: learning how to cope; getting through tough times (including a severe depression) and learning that God sees things differently than we do. Nick doesn’t have a faith walk – he has a faith run, and he runs better than most people with 2 legs. This book tells the story of how God is using Nick in any number of ways, and how some of Nick’s prayers (including his prayer for a wife) are being answered.
As I started reading, I was slightly disappointed, thinking that this was going to be another book full of “life gave me lemons – look how I made lemonade” stories. I wanted to send Nick a note telling him that he’s a fantastic speaker, and that he should write in the same style that he uses when he’s speaking publicly. Then, after a few pages, that speaking style seemed to creep in, and the emotions kicked in: tears, laughter, and a real sense of ‘this is how God works!’
The things that bother so many of us are things that God and Nick have been able to overcome, and as Nick tells his story, it becomes more and more clear why people all over the globe find hope and comfort when Nick speaks.
You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll start googling Nick’s name to see when he’s going to be speaking in your area. Can you rate something a ‘6’ on a scale of ‘1 – 5’?
