    "I highly recommend this book if for no other reason than to get a perspective on how the world views the Christian faith and those who believe in Jesus. Please also visit the website of Voice of the Martyrs, the ministry that was born out of Pastor Wurmbrand's passion for Christ."

    "It's an absolute must-read for those who have felt their heart leading them to the path of Hinduism, but have no Hindu community to associate with or learn from. I believe it would also be a great read for any born-and-raised Hindu, allowing them to take a peek on the other side of the fence. I have a one week vacation coming up, and my nose will be in this book the entire time! "

    "This book is one of the best I've read that is an autobiography with a spiritual aspect. It is written in a way that keeps you interested. This book led to me giving going to church another chance. It was just what I needed. Although it's nonfiction, it was a fun read that made me rethink how people in churches really are accepting."

    "Not my favorite autobiography, spiritual or otherwise. I've only read the translation, maybe the original is better, but in general, this felt more like reading a textbook than I would've liked."
