5.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating biography of a fascinating man!, Dec 13 2002
This biography is one of the most interesting I have ever read. I found his story to be full of spiritual vitality and love for Jesus that passes all human understanding. This man was a spiritual giant who left a legacy for all Christians to emulate. Christ shone brightly in the life of this devout Messianic Jew.

5.0 out of 5 stars Astonishingly beautiful book!, Dec 13 2002
Wurmbrand is a man of many sufferings, tragedies, but also spiritual triumphs of the most amazing kind. I have worn out my copy of this convicting, encouraging, and challenging spiritual masterpiece. Wurmbrand has now passed away but his life and writings exist to carry on the message that even in severe suffering, Christ is with us. This book reminds us that nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus, not even Communist torturers and corrupt governments (which still abound). This book has sustained me through difficult times, and read as a devotional it is a daily dose of comfort and compassion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Encouraging and pertinent reminder of God's election!, Dec 13 2002
This review is from: Chosen By God (Paperback)
I have never been so encouraged in my faith as I was after reading this book. So many awesome points were made that it left me speechless! I was so happy to finally found an evangelical teacher who agrees with the doctrine that seems to spring forth from the New Testament. This book will uplift and encourage anyone who is unsure whether they are 'saved' or not.

As a beginning runner (dare I call myself one yet?) I was in the market for an inspiring book written by an experienced runner. Well, I could not have found a more beautifully written and insightful book to encourage me. If you are looking to be encouraged and cheered then this book is the right buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing book!, Oct. 2 2002
This review is from: Cancer Ward (Paperback)
This book shares with the world the way life truly was in 1950's Communist Russia. The characters are amazingly real and the plot is simple yet very interesting. As a person who doesn't enjoy most novels I can say that this one held me to the very last page!

If you are wanting to lose weight and have tried everything on the market you may have missed out on a big secret: Running Burns Fat Fast! I got this book and followed the 10K training guidelines and have lost weight rapidly and feel better than I have in years. I started out huffing and puffing and could barely run for a straight minute but I stuck with it and you can too! This book will encourage you to make it to the finish line; whether that finish line is the New York City Marathon or your neighborhood post office, this book will help you get there!
