Inspirational Book Jun 23, 2007
I finally finished the book 2 weeks ago. I stopped after I read the first half of it due to my busy school schedule. I especially found this book very inspirational, how God used Shepherd Andrew Martin to feed His flocks with the Word of God. I never met anyone in person who has feed thousands of people with the Word of God. I have only taught a few number of students. Andrew Martin certainly understands God's words very well and through reading his book, I was able to understand certain passages in the Bible that I had not fully understood before. I also liked how sincere he was in the first half of the book discussing the struggles it is to be a Christian and "to stay right." It is a struggle that we as Christians face everyday to overcome our sinful nature. Thank God for His Son Jesus Christ who defeated Satan and the power of sin in our lives and for giving us a gospel that we all can share with. May God continue to bless your ministry in NKU.
An honest, encouraging, real story of struggle and victory in Jesus Feb 5, 2007
This book is an encouraging story of the writer's struggles to overcome the hardships of life and the true peace and joy that he could only find in Jesus. You don't need to be a Christian to enjoy this book. Every single person can relate to the ups and downs that life throws at you. Everyone can remember painful memories of regret, guilt, and mistakes in their lives.
The writer doesn't try to preach at the reader. He simply wants to share his personal, honest, genuine life story and show the grace and happiness that he could receive through meeting Jesus. He recalls many of his own mistakes and troubles, and his story demonstrates how Jesus' love extends to all people, even those that society dismisses as hopeless.
An easy read, entertaining, and definitely encouraging!

God's victorious grace in one's life Nov 12, 2005
This book was easy for me to read and follow. The author's aim throughout was to show that God is able to take any circumstance in the life of any person and turn it to the good, for His glory. This life testimony is a must read, for it brings hope and encouragement to anyone who is looking for a new life in the Lord.
A ray of hope. Nov 11, 2005
The author intends to give an honest account of his life in hopes that troubled young people of today may find a ray of hope. Clearly, he succeeds. It's refreshing to read about someone who not only overcame his own impossible circumstances, but by God's grace, devoted his life to help others. This book is a testimony to God's love at work in our times. It's a story that needs to be heard more and more.
