There is always something fascinating about reading another person’s story. I am a very curious person and crave to know what others think about life, about how they deal with certain situations, and about their personal experiences. Learning about other people allows us to enter into their story, to see life through their eyes, and vicariously experience new things. In Love Casts Out Fear, Brother Nathan tells the story of his life; of how he grew from having a heart of hatred for evil done to his family to having a heart of love for all people. He shares God’s role throughout his life and his early battle to allow God to remove the hate.
The story is a quick read, very engaging, and inspiring. I enjoyed the simple language it was written in and his reflections on the events he had been through. His message is beautiful and powerful; that Jesus is the answer to non-violence.
I enjoy books like these because they open your eyes to another reality. Living in the USA, I haven’t experienced the same fear of persecution as believers in other countries. Brother Nathans story invites us into his reality. This is a wonderful book with a powerful story and message.
