My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Scott MacIntyre’s life and that of his family is indeed an example of unwavering faith in God and his promises. He mentioned that he wanted to reach out to people and tell the world of his story to inspire people and he did just that not only with his book but all that he’s accomplished in his life.
Once again, I got a copy of the book from Booksneeze.com and I’m grateful not only for the copy but for the blessing that this book has been. Having read his story, I felt ashamed of the fact that despite being blessed with all five senses, I was not able to accomplish not even one fourth of what Scott was able to do so with the absence of the sense of sight. Also, taking into account all that he’s had to struggle with – his blindness and how he had to navigate the world with only his four other senses, the kidney failure he’s had and the other trials that came their way, I felt that I had no right at all to complain about my situation in life. Truly, the MacIntyre family is a living testimony of the Lord’s faithfulness, and what God said about all things working together for good for those who love God and are fitting to his plans.
I also felt a deep admiration for his parents who never once wavered with doing what they could for their children, dreaming dreams for them and passionately and selflessly putting their children’s welfare on top of their priorities. It has given me hope in dealing with my son’s situation and once again, a valuable lesson in trusting God and his will.
On the technical side, I like Scott’s style of writing. During the times when I was still writing, I used to do the same – not writing chronologically. I like the fact that he started out the book with his elimination from AI and then moved with different events in his life.
The book is an easy read, no highfalutin words that requires incessant consultations with Mr. Webster and it is truly an inspiring one. A testimony of a man completely reliant and faithful to God. Thank you for sharing your story Mr. MacIntyre, I pray that you continue to inspire and touch more lives.
