Undaunted—both the book and an upcoming movie—chronicles the riveting true story of a young farm boy named Josh who carried unspeakable memories of an alcoholic father and a farmhand’s abuse, causing him to defy God’s existence. Yet God redeemed a horrible situation with his unbelievable grace. Today Josh McDowell is one of the most popular evangelists in the world who defends the reality of Jesus Christ to millions through his presentations and classic book More Than a Carpenter. Undaunted unfolds the dramatic spiritual transformation in Josh’s life when he faces his past head-on and puts everything entirely in God’s hands. The result is an undaunted faith, a gift freely offered to everyone who seeks it.
First off, I have to say, cannot wait for the movie! Just curious to see how it will translate to film. The story is a true one of how a boy grew up with an alcoholic Father. It then goes to show how that boy grew into a manand how God transformed that man and his anger and hatred towards his own father for the abuse he endured.
It is a very hard story to read and at times I did cringe, but Josh focused more on God and how he used that experince to mold Josh and make him what he is today. This story goes to show how we never understand why people do the things they do, but putting Faith and trust in God can turn that turmoil or situation around and use it for his glory.
I would reccomend this book, although I felt it was a heavy read at times, I still couldn;t put it down.
