Escape the Hezbollah: Book Review

Escape The Hezbollah

I recently finished reading a powerfully intense work by Pola Muzyka. "Escape the Hezbollah" follows a young man through the ultimate test of faith and love. The main character Joseph is kidnapped into the Hezbollah army and forced under Sharia Law. This powerful story follows Joseph through his struggles to keep his faith in God while trying to stay alive, protect the ones he loves and escape.

This is a powerful , inspiring book. Not only well written, but well researched. I was taken by the research involved in the overall story as well included "glossary of events".
Overall the book really makes you think about your faith, your passion, your conviction. What would you do in his situation? Do you have the faith to stand up for God even in your darkest hours?

I saw that you are following my blog so I stopped by yours...script writing? WOW. That is something I can't ever see myself doing! Kuddos to you. Great review on that book, too. It is in the "walk through the dark" that we find if we truly have faith or just talk!
