My daughter bought the book and she was reading it. I got interested in the cover and the title and so I started to read. As soon as I started to read I could not put it down. It was very inspiring and motivating. I was touched by the testimony of David Nasser. I laughed a lot also (alone) while reading the book. He has a very keen sense of humor. I also cried especially when his mother was in the surgery and his father cried to JESUS. My knowledge about his culture as an Iranian was broadened. My imagination was cultivated as well while reading the book especially when he described his mom. Most of all my relationship with JESUS was deepened as I read the book. David's testimony truly showed that there is nothing impossible with GOD and that GOD is no respecter of person. JESUS loves and cares for everybody (people of all color, race and culture). I enjoyed the pictures featured in the book. I do pray that a movie producer will read the book and produce from it a Christian movie. I actually ordered the book to give away as Christmas gifts. Praise the LORD for using David Nasser to write books that will lead people to JESUS.

I have heard David Nasser speak and he is a moving speaker. Reading his book was a treat I didn't expect. His life story is written with so much detail and it is amazing to see how the Holy Spirit worked in his life.

Book is relatively short which helps given my sometimes busy schedule. There are other books on "how I made it out" as the theme and this joins them as one of the best.

Easy to read, but hard to put down, I read this book from cover to cover in one sitting. An honest account that simply told of one person's encounter with the living God, and the powerful results of such an encounter in a life, and in a family. Good stuff!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Makes you realize how easy most of us have it, this family really went through tough times. This book should be read, then passed on to others.
