I was an Air Rescue helicopter pilot in Vietnam in 1964-1965. As such I was not in contact with the Vietnamese population on a daily basis. Thoi's story really gave me a tremendous insight on Vietnamese family ties, their culture, and their war time stress. It made me marvel how people strive to keep some sense of a normal life while a war is raging around them. The book clearly illustrates the wonder of the human spirit to protect life and family, to strive for clearly defined goals, and the courage to leave one's native country for a better future.

The Making of a Believer is an inspiring story about a journey that develops on several levels. It is a true coming-of-age story about a youth abandoned by his parents. It provides an historical account of the Viet Nam as seen through the eyes of a South Vietnamese patriot. It is filled with adventure, danger, and incredible courage. It is a love story with a happy ending. Above all, it is a journey of Christian faith, miracles, and the grace of God.

Thoi Nguyen was born in Vietnam in the early 1940's. His life was disrupted by war in the early years, he lived with grandparents and always felt unliked by his father. Life was not easy and he pushed himself to help his family and worked hard to finish his education..As conditions in the entire country and especially in his home city of Saigon deteriorated, Thoi earned a degree in agronomy, was drafted, witnessed the horrible deaths of many civilians and soldiers, and suffered losses in his own family. During these yeats, he became a Christioan and his strong beliefs have helped him throughout his life. Nguyen tells his story by including reactions to what is happening in his country and in the world. He meets his bride, starts a family, and begins a long, dangerous escape that covers thousands of miles and eventually leads to a peaceful, happy, productive life in the farmlands of Iowa. This book is written as a personal, sincere memory by an honest, hardworking citizen of the world.

I have known the author of this book for many years and had no idea of the things that this man and his family had been through. Thoi¿s book has given me a new outlook on the war in Vietnam and a great respect for the brave souls that were forced from their homes and have become fine citizens of many nations of this world. Thanks for a great message Thoi.
