Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption
This is the inspiring true story of a man who lived through a series of catastrophes almost too incredible to be believed. Louie Zamperini, a juvenile delinquent-turned-Olympic runner-turned-Army hero, crashes into the Pacific with his plane and other crew members. The next three years of his life is the story of a man who somehow maintained his sense of self and humanity despite brutal treatment and degradation. The power of redemption and forgiveness shines through in an unforgettable way.

Drawing from the book of Ruth, A Loving Life offers the help we need to embrace relationship, endure rejection, cultivate community, and reach out to even the most unlovable around us as we discover the power to live a loving life.
