Nick Vujicic is Unstoppable

I have had this book for awhile and never really picked it up to read.  It’s hard not to view the story of Nick Vujicic without amazement at what he has accomplished.  In his book, Unstoppable: The Incredible Power of Faith in Action, Nick talks about adversity.  Obviously he has faced more than I can imagine facing. 

Nick was born with no arms or legs, and ever since his teens, he has committed his life to inspiring others to live an abundant life and to accept a relationship with Jesus as Savior.  In Unstoppable, Nick shares more of his story and he includes stories about people he has met and how they have inspired him.

Appearances are obvious when you’re with Nick, but his personality draws people to him and takes away some of the awkwardness of speaking with him.

The main focus of Nick’s story is that he doesn’t need legs or arms to live the life Jesus offers him.  That’s a powerful testimony from Nick.  Nick explains that there is no medical reason why he was born looking the way he is, but he believes God has a great purpose for him in his life, and he is seeking to fulfill God’s calling.

Nick was not bashful to express the highs and lows he has experienced in life, personally, socially and from a business perspective.  This is not a theological book, so don’t expect great theology, this is simply and profoundly a book of encouragement focusing on one man’s journey and how he has overcome, even to the point of getting married (and his insecurities) and now being a father.
