I just finished reading "Unbroken" by Laura Hillenbrand. This book was so well-written that I finished it in about 3 days, I couldn't put it down! About a man named Louie Zamperini, this book tells an unbelievable story of his experiences as an Olympic runner, WWII solider, POW, and eventually, a Christian.
I must warn you, this book has parts that are hard to read, the torture and violence so many American POWs experienced in the war camps are sickening, but what a spotlight it puts on man's utter sin and total depravity and also on the divine power of redemption and forgiveness. I highly recommend it!
