Review: Unbroken

Unbroken Tracy Elliott
Unbroken by Tracy Elliott

When I first started reading this book, I was expecting a testimony from somebody who had given their life to Christ and how Christ had helped them turn their life around. Christ is powerful and changes the lives of believers.

Travy Elliott’s story is a little different. She gave her life to Christ at a young age, and from there went through years of abuse, neglect, squallor, drug and alcohol addiciton, and working at strip clubs. Tracy’s story is different because Jesus was with her along along and took a lifetime to work his changes in her life and is now able to use Tracy in powerful ways.

For those with weak constitutions, this book does not start off easy to read. Tracy gives her life story bluntly and only holds back a little. If descriptions of verbal and drunken abuse of Tracy as a child will make you squeamish, perhaps this isn’t the book for you.

But hang in there – Jesus was always there for Tracy, and you’ll see how when Tracy returned to faith in her Lord, how Jesus brought her through marriage, children, rehab, and finally sharing her testimony of the life changing love of Jesus.
