Review:
Life Without Limits by Nick Vujicic (pronounced Voy-a-chich) is part biography, part testimony and totally motivational. It is written in a chatty, unabashed and totally down to earth way. At times it had me sniffing back tears, giggling a little madly and sitting quietly and nodding along and 'listening' as important lessons on faith, acceptance, doubt, achievement and being perfectly who we are meant to be, were taught in such clear and understandable ways. Nick uses his own life as an exemplar in this book - though not conceitedly - indeed he stressses throughout that others may well have it worse in ways he never has and can't truly comprehend, though he has suffered through depression and of course having been born with no arms or legs does give him some real insight and empathy into hardships and overcoming. And he also uses the witness and experience of others he has met with and heard of, to demonstrate how we can all live a life without limits if we want to. After all it's the life God wants us to lead - of this he is positive and a positive advocate of.

There is at the end of the book a section entitled 'Personal action plan' but it would also make a great basis for a group study session too.

There are so many good quotes and sections in this book that if I'd had a highlighter handy probably a good third of the book would now be fluorescent - I reallly can't recommend it enough. To be honest when I started it I thought it was probably slightly over hyped but I was gladly disappointed to find it wasn't!
