From adventure-filled days complete with real-life war games, artillery fire, and tank races to terror-filled nights marked by vicious tirades, brutal beatings, and psychological torture, Mark paints a chilling portrait of family life that is at once whimsical and horrific—all building to a shocking climax that challenges even the broadest boundaries of love and forgiveness.

At time painful to listen too, but eventually displays God's glorious sovereignty
This is an interesting book that I was periodically tempted to stop listening to - however, I persisted to the end and was very glad that I did. If there was ever a story that clearly illustrates the reality of Romans 8:28, it is this one. The story is a fascinating journey through poverty, adventure and abuse and eventually the enlightening and freeing reality of knowing Christ. In the end we see how the difficult journey prepared this man to be courageously used by God for His glory. Well worth the time to listen through to the end!

Amazing story. Spiritually empty.
This is an amazing life story that could only be redeemed through the grace of Christ. However, I was disappointed that Mark wasn't more overt about that fact -- the work that God did in his life and how God used Mark, despite his upbringing, to show and share God's love. It feels as though he wrote this book to be palatable to Hollywood (i.e. cleansed of spiritual content). Nevertheless, I am thankful to God for His redemption of Mark's life!

Touching and Inspiring
To hear the story of one who came through so much and was rescued by Christ encourages me to know that God can take anyone and use them.
