You might believe in God, but do you feel that he has truly changed your life?  Are you on a amazing, world-shaking spiritual journey - or are you feeling restless and dissatisfied, wondering if this is really the best that faith in Jesus has to offer?
International evangelist and speaker Luis Palau has encountered people from all walks of life who believe in God but who have never experienced real, defining transformation.  In Changed by Faith, he offers a gritty, up-close look at the broken world around us, the true redemptive power of the gospel - and what it means for our life today.  Through dramatic personal stories and a solid Scriptural perspective, Luis walks you through the practical changes that come when you follow the true teaching of Jesus Christ, and shows you how God can take the ashes of your life and transform them into something beautiful.  (from the back cover of the book)
In Changed by Faith, the author Luis Palau  takes us on a journey.  His father, who died when Luis was 10 years old, had a lasting effect on his life.  he talks of how his father stood up in the middle of a service, proclaiming his faith. He recalls seeing his father living his faith out ever day, by reading the Word and witnessing to others every chance he had.
This book is not a hard book to get into, but if you are like me, you want to have a notebook handy.  Luis, shares a number of not only his experiences of walking by faith, but of others.
You will not only read of people that were not raised in a Christian home, but those that were.  Their stories may differ from each other, but in the end, it all comes back to your faith in God.
Although, the book can be read easily, it is full of the scriptures and can be a guide to help you, if you find yourself lacking in faith.
I would recommend this to my friends, but I would ask that you take the time to really think about what you are reading.  This book has the potential to turn your life around from doubting to having the faith that God would want you to have. 
i received this book from Tyndale House, to do a review.  I was only asked to read the book and give my honest opinion on it.  I have tried to give my honest thoughts and hope that as you read it, that you will find your own faith soaring.  I give this book a 4.5 rating.
