Shaun Groves’ Review of UNSHAKEN

My friend, Compassion-loving blogger and musician extraordinaire, was kind enough to read and provide the first full review of Unshaken, which you can find here: http://shaungroves.com/2010/12/dan-woolley-unshaken/. I was pleased that Shaun liked my book, but even more that he “got it” — that the messages I hoped people would glean from Unshaken came home to him. Here is an excerpt from his review:

It’s the story of what happened in those 65 hours underground. And much more. Being broken and buried alive for nearly three days wasn’t the darkest night Dan walked through.

But no matter the depth of his darkness, Dan has never been alone.

This message is deftly communicated without veering off into shallow cliches and empty platitudes spun for some Sunday school class.

Dan is vulnerable and as honest as is healthy with total strangers. His openness opened a window on my own broken places and I believe God will use this book to do the same for thousands more.

Unshaken is for anyone who loves a good suspenseful story and for anyone swallowed by darkness today or walking someone else through theirs. For anyone halfway living, in need of resurrection from the doldrums of dutiful religion and dispassionate relationships. For anyone seeking inspiration and evidence that God is unshaken by all that shakes us.
