‘Life Without Limits’ Book Review January 15, 2014

Life Without Limits by Nick VujicicTitle: Life Without Limits: Inspiration For A Ridiculously Good Life

Author: Nick Vujicic

Rating: 4/5

This is the second of Nick’s books that I have read, the first having been Unstoppable. I find Nick’s writing to be humorous, truthful, and engaging, so I was very excited to have the chance to read another of his books.

In case you are not familiar with Nick Vujicic, this man was born with neither arms nor legs. However, his positive outlook, constant faith, and heart for others is truly an inspiration to myself and to many others. In this book he discusses ways in which we can live life…without limits. Whether the thing that threatens to limit us is our own insecurity, fear, or supposed shortcomings, he speaks truth on letting nothing stop you from living a better, more influential, and more fruitful life.

As I said before, Nick has an engaging writing style, using stories of his own experiences, as well as those of others, to illustrate points more clearly. This (at least for myself) made the book both easier to enjoy, and easier to understand.

There were very few aspects of this book that I did not care for. For example. Nick does not use a significant amount of scripture throughout the book. Although some appear occasionally, they are very few and far between. While the content of the book is still great, I would have preferred to see more scriptural support for the points that he made. My only other negative remark would be that if you have read another of Nick’s books, such as I did before this one, you may find multiple stories repeated in this book as you have already read elsewhere.

Overall, I would recommend this book both to Christians and non-believers alike. The truth that Nick shares and the way in which he does so creates a helpful, uplifting read that I hope you will enjoy.

Note: I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for my honest review. However, my opinions are my own.

‘Unstoppable’ Book Review October 31, 2012

Title: Unstoppable: The Incredible Power of Faith in Action

Author: Nick Vujicic

Date I Finished Reading: October 31,2012

My Rating:5/5

Faith in action is a powerful, encouraging and inspiring thing. Nick Vujicic, author of Life Without Limbs, shares his feelings, convictions and experiences regarding faith in this book. Nick was born without arms or legs, and has grown to become an internationally- known motivational speaker. Using his own experiences, and the story of others, he explores areas such as control, trust, God’s plan for you, love, self-inflicting pain, depression, suicide, and many others.

I did enjoy this book, I enjoyed Nick’s humor, and ability to express his point by telling a story, and he did make some good, thought-provoking statements on faith. However, there were a couple of things I didn’t like. For example, Nick seemed to go off topic several times, and also seemed to be very repetitive at times.Overall, though, this was an encouraging book that I would recommend to you. I WOULD  be cautious of letting younger audiences read, however, due to the fact that drugs, suicide, and sexual slavery are, at times, discussed.

Note: I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review, but my opinions are my own.
