How easy is it to forgive those who cause you so much pain? Uong Nguyen’s journey from atheism, under the North Vietnamese Communist regime, to Christ is not an easy journey. Anger, bitterness, trauma, brutality and despair can destroy a man, yet the love of God can turn anyone around.
Growing up during the Vietnam War made a lasting impact on Uong’s life. Conscripted into the Vietnamese army at 18, he saw firsthand the horrors of the Cambodian ‘Killing Fields’ and the brutality of the Khmer Rouge. He also experienced the despair of languishing in a Thai refugee camp for seven years.
This book reveals how God is with us on our journey to faith and how the power of restoration and forgiveness are keys in the life of any believer.
