Item description for Against All Odds: "Lord, I've Ruined My Life. I'm Yours, If You Still Want Me." (International Adventures) by Jim Stier...
Overview Deeply wounded in his childhood and struggling to come to terms with failed relationships, Jim Stier wondered if God could ever use a life as fractured as his. Indeed God would use him -- in ways that Jim could never have imagined. Confronted with the opportunity to deny his Savior, Jim surrendered his life, with all of its pain, to God. So began an inspiring journey of struggle, faith, and victory that ultimately led to the lost, hurting people of Brazil and beyond. Against All Odds is a compelling reminder that God restores broken lives and broken dreams. This story of one man's passion to see a nation transformed is a stunning testimony that Christ's grace and mercy can redeem any life surrendered to Him. On every continent, in every nation, God is at work in and through the lives of believers. From the streets of Manila to mysterious Albania to the jungles of Ecuador and beyond. This and every title in the International Adventures series emerges as a dramatic episode that could be directed only by the hand of God. There are 12 books in this series.

Sorry I can't give the answer to you. Buy the book.
Summarized, You will travel back into the well detailed exciting life of YWAM Missionary John Stier. He will start you off with how he was raised and the many stuggles he had to go through leading up to meeting his lovely Hawaiian Wife. Against all odds they were called into a country to raise up other missionaries. The stuggles were not only real, but you will begin to see God revealed in a pattern sort of way, teaching John Stier to figure out the ultimate questions you may have been asking yourself. When I started off reading this book I became depressed hearing all the struggles John had gone through. But closer to the end I started seeing this pattern that God had taken John on. This was closely related to my own life. Then the answer came and it all made sense. You hear these sermons you read these books. But are you really ready for God to bless you? Are you really ready to discipline yourself when you find out the answers to your questions? I guess will see.
Awesome awesome book, that will definetely inspire you. Sep 24, 1999
This book shows how God can work through you, if you just let Him and put your faith on Him. Probably the best book I've ever read. Jim Stier went through alot of difficulties, but God was always there. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
