Unbroken (Book Review)

Unbroken
Laura Hillenbrand

If ever there was a time for bitterness, hatred, revenge and linch mob justice this was it, but it didn’t end in violent retribution, it ended in forgiveness and love. How is this possible? It’s worth the read to find out. Unbroken follows the Life of Louis Zamperini: sick child — picked on immigrant — delinquent —  olympic athlete — bombing ace –shot down aviator — survivor lost at sea — prisoner of War — War hero — bitter drunk with collapsing marriage — redemption, transformation, forgiveness and peace. If you embark on this journey, be warned, it will be difficult to put the book down. You will be stunned, you will be horrified, you will be amazed, you will be challenged, and you might even be changed.

About Dennis Arve Wilkinson

Happily married, blessed with four children, thrilled to have started Meta Communities in 2011. Born in Calgary, raised in Winnipeg, undergraduate education in Wisconsin (NIU) & Seminary education in Minnesota (CBTS). During my time in the Midwest I gained about a dozen years of pastoral experience. It has been my privilege to travel to many parts of the globe and divine providence has smiled on me by allowing me to be mentored by several men of great character over the course of my life time. I am a follower of Jesus - though not without struggle. I am committed to joining God in the restoration of all things by telling, showing, and welcoming people into the good news of God's story. God's story of redemption in Jesus is the best story the human has -- I am letting the better story shape my life and helping others do the same.
