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, with Scripture, to various life situations: Facing a personal crisis, relationship issues, career challenges, depression, bullying, etc. Unstoppable is content light but inspiration heavy.
The strength of the book is built on the strength of the person. Much of what he says would strike me as cheesy if I heard it from nearly anyone else, but Vujicic’s own personal struggles grant him credibility to speak about these issues. I’ve been reading quite a few stories of faith in books such as Seven Men (Eric Metaxas) and In Search of Deep Faith (Jim Belcher) and Vujicic’s story gives me yet another person to admire. These books, along with my regular reading of Hebrews 11, are helping me understand that I’m surrounded by a faithful community, both past and present.
I recommend Unstoppable to anyone in the midst of an especially difficult time or a transitional stage. Those are the times we need to remember to take steps of faith, trusting the God who lives us and has a plan for us.
