This book has a lot of specific info that I didn't know, as well as background (historical, cultural and current) information to put it all in context. If you have any interest at all in China, or American business and economy, or world ecomony and globalization, I would recommend this book very highly, as it ties it all together.

This was an OK book that did get better the farther I got into the book. While I was reading it, I didn't think I could finish. It was interesting and I love reading about other cultures and religious beliefs.

Deeply moving and incredible insight into the mindset of many Muslims and the struggle between ideologies even within Islam. Aayan's book takes you on her life's journey and overcoming incredible adversity in the face of centuries old distorted belief system that abuses women who are worth less than animals in the minds of the men who control this culture. A must read for all Americans!

It was a gift for my father-in-law. He is a big OReilly fan. He seems to be enjoying the book.

Makes you think about what is going on in politics and gives you both sides of the perspective. I don't always agree with everything that is said in the book. But at least it makes you think.

Radzinsky's access to Soviet archives and knowledge of the Soviet culture itself is the linchpin of this gripping biography. Not since John Toland's Adolf Hitler has a historian been as masterful in humanizing a tyrant before drowning him in the blood of his victims. Stalin is thrown across the iron curtain of secrecy and fear he created to be exposed of all his treachery and intrigue. Although some of Radzinsky's psychological conclusions of Stalin's mind and motives are of his own personal inference, he ably attempts to map these from documents and interviews. The Stalin of the war years is sparse but excused by the author's own admission. Perhaps most fascinating, is Radzinsky's determination that Stalin's monstrous plotting was only ended by his death when he positioned his country for another world war. This is a very readable book for all interested in the drama of world history during the 20th Century.

WOW! The book was beyond incredible. I am excited for the world to read this... THE BRAVEHEARTED GOSPEL MUST BE HEARD! When I finished the last paragraph of The Bravehearted Gospel the only word I could utter was ¿whoa.¿ But whoa as in: ¿this is one of THE most phenomenal books I have read¿ probably Eric Ludy¿s best work to date¿ incredibly piercing but desperately needed.¿ We need Truth. We need boldness. We need a backbone. What happened to the gospel of the early church that was bold and courageous? Men and women who were willing to stand in the face of politics, in the face of the religious culture, in the face of hungry lions, and declare with firmness and unwavering devotion that Truth is not only invariable but is Jesus! This book is extreme. Extremely well written. Extremely well communicated. Extremely Biblically accurate. Extremely pointed while being extremely humble. Extremely light-hearted while being extremely serious. Extremely needed in this not-so-extreme world. I felt as if I were reading a modern day John the Baptist, who was a voice crying out in the wilderness to prepare the way of the Lord, making His crooked paths straight. But even more than a plea to wayward leaders to find the Truth, The Bravehearted Gospel causes a stir and a burning desire within one¿s bosom to square the shoulders, to throw off everything and anything that hinders, and to lose one¿s self in the pursuit of Truth, the living Word, the Person of Jesus. It is the call of Christ, the essence of the Gospel. As I have been reading the book I have told several people a basic synopsis of The Bravehearted Gospel and I could see a hunger in their eyes and sensed a desire rise in desperation of Truth and for someone who is willing to stand for it. We need the essence of Bravehearted Gospel infused within our lives! This, hands down, is one of the best books I have read in a long time (and being in seminary we have to read a LOT of books). The last several months God has been revealing that I need a backbone. I need to stand for Truth and what is right. I need to rescue the widow, the orphan, the destitute. I need and deeply hunger to be a man full of the Bravehearted Gospel. I have only just begun the adventure, and the rest of the world vehemently needs to hear the call as well.
