In Unstoppable: The Incredible Power of Faith in Action Nick Vujicic, an inspirational speaker and evangelist who was born without arms and legs, tells stories of faith in action. He applies the principles he’s learned from those stories, along with Scripture, to various life situations such as facing a personal crisis, relationship issues, career challenges, depression, bullying, etc. Unstoppable, while pretty light in content, is heavy in inspiration.
The strength of the book is built on the strength of the person. Much of what he says would probably strike me as cheesy coming from nearly anyone else, but Vujicic’s own personal struggles grant him credibility to speak about these issues. I’ve been reading quite a bit recently about stories of faith in books such as Seven Men by Eric Metaxas and In Search of Deep Faith by Jim Belcher and Vujicic’s story gives me yet another person to admire. Between these books, and my regular reading of Hebrews 11, I am beginning to understand that I truly am surrounded by a faithful community of believers, both past and present.
Unstoppable would be a good read for anyone going through an especially difficult time or in a transitional stage. Those are the times we need to remember to step out in faith, trusting the situations of our lives to the God who loves us and has a plan for us.
