The Power of Choice.

God's Greatest Gift to Us Can Unleash the
Most Powerful Force on Our Planet.

Our Lives, Our Families, and Our World
Are Never the Same Again.

A naïve doctor fresh out of school was just what the Russian Mafia sought for their fraudulent medical ring. As a surface Christian living a self-absorbed life, Dr. Michael Norman was the perfect hire for their web of evil after answering a two-line classified ad in the newspaper. Months later, it became difficult to distinguish the bad guys from the good guys as Dr. Norman's cooperation was cruelly turned against him by corrupt government officials well aware of his accidental ties to this criminal conspiracy. What follows is a frightening true story that could occur to any of us, and a powerful faith journey to redemption that is made possible only through our Christian faith and the bold use of our power of choice for God.

"A riveting tale of unimaginable crisis that will keep you on the edge of your seat and then drive you to your knees! Dr. Norman's dramatic story tells of how panic and despair were transformed into victory by the decision to believe. An inspiring testimony to the power of God that will build your faith and give you courage to face the challenges of life."

Dr. Marcellino D'Ambrosio

Author of The Guide to the Passion and director of The Crossroads Initiative

"The chapter-ending meditations are fantastic!"

    A chilling story of how man's nightmare showed him the power of God's grace!

    When Dr. Michael J. Normal answered an ad in the newspaper for a part-time chiropractor, he believed it was the answer to a prayer. Trying to find a way to supplement his current income in his private practice so his wife could stay home as a full-time mom and wife, he believed God had answered his prayers.

    However sometimes we are in such a rush to take advantage of what seems to be a good thing, we miss all the tale-tell signs that are simply too good to be true. What enviably happened was that his current employers were using Dr. Norman's part time business working for them as a front in a Russian-Mafia scheme and since his name was listed as the primary doctor, they were also listed on all the business paperwork. It would be the ultimate cost to him and his family in finding a way out. It's not like he could just quit his job when confronted by insurance lawyers and facing federal indictment charges, now his family was at risk once his employers knew that their cover was blown.

    How far would they be willing to go to make sure Dr. Norman kept his mouth shut? Would they threaten his current practice and family? Would God be able to provide a way out?

    In the novel, Unbridled Grace, Dr. Michael J. Norman takes his readers on a remarkable journey into one man's nightmare and how God taught him valuable lessons he might have not learned any other way, through this true story about the power of our choices. In this book, Dr. Norman educates his readers through the retelling of his own personal crisis, exactly how God was with him every step of the way, and how many times He tried to intervene but since the choice remained with Dr. Norman, unfortunately not every choice is the right one to take and God is not to blame.

    I found the book compelling to show readers how simple it is to blame God for everything that doesn't go right in our lives and sometimes it takes a turbulent storm to bring us back to the realization that we need to change direction and head for calmer waters. I received this book compliments of Pump Up Your Book Tours for my honest review and easily give this one a 5 out of 5 stars. Sometimes we learn our best lessons through going through the fires and trials of life and in the end, God really does bring out goodness from the dark.
