Amazingly interesting and inspiring
Beyond the Rapids goes beyond the category of good entertainment and gives you something to take away with you, something deeply inspiring that will affect your life. The dangers the Byrnza family members faced, the hardships they endured, and the faith in God they displayed are all glowing testimonies of their Christianity. You can’t help but admire each one of them as they tell their amazingly interesting stories. You can’t help but applaud their daring honesty as you read of the heinous ploys a country can utilize to persecute Christians. And when the Byrnzas prove, again and again, that nothing is too difficult for their great Lord to handle, you can’t help but realize that you serve the same prayer-answering God.
Evelyn Puerto did an excellent job of weaving these lives, this region, and this political situation into a remarkably outstanding book. Beyond the Rapids was a joy to read, and I highly recommend it.
