Review by Jennifer

This book includes seven amazing stories of how God rescued seven individuals from hopeless situations. From a Wall Street broker to a homeless man and a party girl to an addict, these are the stories of real people who have real problems. But they all have one thing in common. They discover hope that is only found through Jesus Christ and they are rescued from their hopeless situations.

I have personally met Pastor Cymbala, as well as some of the individuals whose stories are in this book. Pastor Cymbala has a heart for God. His writing will challenge you and help you discover that life is not meant to be done alone, but with God on your side. Without God’s help, these seven individuals would not be where they are today. I can tell you these stories are real and these people truly were transformed by God. They were in the depths of despair, but God had his hand on them. When they cried out to God, they were rescued.

Read their stories to be encouraged and reminded that God loves you more than you could ever imagine. As Kaitlin shares her story, she reminds us that God is a Father to the fatherless. May these stories be a source of inspiration to you as you look to the Heavenly Father for guidance.

Whether you are a Christian or just hearing about a God who loves you for the very first time, this is a book for you. It will uplift you and remind you there is hope, even in this troubled world. Just as he rescued these seven individuals, God will also rescue you.

I highly recommend this book. Purchase a copy for a friend and one for yourself as well. (Posted on 3/17/2018)

I thought I'd sit and read it for just a bit today and I'm almost done with the book. I'm not an avid reader. If I can have someone read to me I will. But I couldn't put this down. It's full of raw testimonies of the horrors of life. It shows these 7 people as who they actually are and what Jesus has done for them. I'm so blessed to have a copy of this book and can't wait for other people in my life to read it. I'd say its a MUST READ, but that's an understatement. I'm already ready for the sequel.
