- Almost unspeakable inspiration. by Sarah on 2/20/2014
There is just so much crammed into this small-ish paperback I could never completely cover it all so I'll just touch on a few things.
The term "faith in action" sums up the beautiful lesson in the first section of the book. It's a resounding theme to the end as well. "Why me?" Come on, you know you've said that before. I know I have! My disability isn't seen on the outside. You wouldn't know if I didn't tell you but it's crippled my life at times. Those are the times I have cried out to God, asking "why me?". Why NOT me? What good has it done for my life? How can I put that ability into it and use it, allow God to show me the purpose? Man, I'm just so excited about the new revelations that have come to me through obedience last Sunday and now, reading this book.

This is not so much the story of Nick Vujicic’s life, as it is his advice on how to live life. Although he uses bits of his life story to illustrate some of his recommendations, this is a guide to living life abundantly–no matter what cards of life each of us has been dealt.
Who is Nick Vujicic and what gives him the right to give advice about living? For no apparent reason, Nick was born without arms or legs thirty years ago. He has one little partial foot at the end of the trunk of his body, and that is it. Despite what the world would call disadvantages, Nick has used what he has been given physically, along with a deep faith in Christ, and has been quite successful.
He has been all over the globe. Nick has been with the poorest of the poor, as well as, mingling with presidents, actors and actresses, and he has received an invitation to Billy Graham’s home. Nick has surfed in the ocean, parachuted, and skateboarded. He speaks to crowds all over the world, makes television appearances, acted in the movie The Butterfly Circus, and is an author. He is married to a beautiful wife, and they recently had their first child.
Nick has a special heart for those who feel overwhelmed, have been bullied, or even suicidal. He truly understands those feelings because he has been there, too. With God’s help, Nick has been able to come out on the other side, and he wants other sufferers to do that as well. Nick has a non-profit company that he works through to reach out to hurting people everywhere.
Nick’s advice should be listened to because Nick himself seems to be in an impossible situation. Yet he has done more so far in his short life, than many full-limbed people have done in a lifetime. Nick offers sound advice to people, but he starts first by being a follower of Jesus Christ. Everything else he has to say is built on that first step.
I enjoyed Nick’s book and give it five stars. He has interesting, and encouraging things to say. Nick truly has a heart for all people, and cares about bringing happiness to the unhappy. I recommend this book no matter what the faith of the reader. I especially recommend it to anyone who feels they have hit-bottom with nowhere else to go.
The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book through WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for the purpose of review. All opinions expressed are my own, and I have not been compensated in any other manner.
- The perfect book for anyone who is struggling! by Becky on 9/19/2012
I have seen videos of Nick speaking & thought he was an incredible man. After reading his book, "Unstoppable" I know he is.
Many people that have had lows in their life, do not want to speak about it for fear of being considered weak or unworthy. Nick peeled back all the layers and laid it all out. He speaks of his life experiences from the heart. He is honest in his feelings and trials he has endured. He is not looking for pity, he is sharing his experience in hopes that it will help others.
To quote Nick: "You can't expect every day to make sense. Sometimes your days are just comical. Other days are tragic. But for better or worse, in sickness and health, good or bad, it is just ridiculous that we are alive and breathing, isn't it? Life itself is a miracle."
I really recommend this book for the fact that it makes you stop & think. At any given day, you may think your life is horrible, you can't imagine living another day, everything is wrong....the list goes on. But reading how Nick's life is a blessing to him and those around him makes you realize that your life is not that bad. Things could be worse!

- Faith in Action Unstoppable by mlbarber on 9/3/2012
UNSTOPPABLE by Nick Vujicic
To quote the author’s own words, “It’s about having faith in yourself, your talents, your purpose, and most of all, in God’s great love and His divine plan for your life.” This is a good summary of Vujicic’s book of believing and achieving. This godly man without arms and legs from birth has shown the world a life that has been unstoppable in his desire to help others with their problems and win the world for Jesus.
Throughout the book many inspiring examples are given of the importance of faith, however, not just faith but faith in action. Life is full of valleys. Vujicic tries to convince the world that these valleys make us stronger if we will learn by them. They also prove God’s unlimited power through our weakness. Vujicic certainly is an example of this quote from him. “One day at a time with Christ by our side.”
Ample examples with reliable counsel is give with such problems as finding a mate (one with which he found with great success), bullying, and marital problems. With his background of experiences, Vujicic is able to relate to many people around the world.
Giving love is important to receive love. Being a servant takes humility and also surrender of our ways, possessions, and goals as well as surrender to God’s purpose for our lives. The ultimate quote at the end of this book is “When you are deeply rooted in faith, you are unstoppable.”
