Yesterday, Jon handed me David Nasser's book, Jumping through Fires: The Gripping Story of One Man's Escape from Revolution to Redemption and I had such a hard time putting it down! I stayed up a little late last night because I was so wrapped up David Nasser's story and had to finish this book. Through various youth functions, I've had the privilege of hearing David Nasser speak and have always enjoyed his messages though never knew much of his back story.
Jumping through Fires is his personal testimony of escaping Iran during revolution and his transformation into a real and living faith in Jesus Christ as Savior. Reading David's personal memories of his family's life and how God got a hold of him, was truly captivating. The subtitle says it all...it really is a gripping story. The best thing that I took away from his testimony was to live my faith in Christ in all aspects of life because you never know who is watching. The way I treat a waitress in a restaurant could have an impact on someone else's journey to God! If you are looking for a new read, I recommend finding a copy of Jumping through Fires immediately, but be sure to begin reading when you have plenty of time, because it is almost impossible to put down!
