Book Review of Redemption: A Rebellious Spirit, A Praying Mother, And the Unlikely Path to Olympic Gold by Bryan Clay with Joel Kilpatrick
The inside jacket of the book says, " Redemption welcomes readers to learn the potential for victory, the power of prayer, and the promise of a God who never gives up." Clay's life story shows the reader all of these things. I was very encouraged by his mother's devotion to praying for his future, and then seeing what God had told her unfold in Clay's life. Despite the struggles he faced in his childhood and youth, Clay was able to rise above those with faith in God and a lot of hard work. I really like the quote on the back cover of the book by Clay which says, "I have been put on Earth not only to win medals and enjoy the thrill of competition but also, ultimately, to point people to the faithfulness of God." I highly recommend this book for anyone looking for some inspiration. You won't be disappointed because Clay's life story is full of inspiration!
