Inhaltsangabe

Running for My Life is not a story about Africa or track and field athletics. It is about outrunning the devil and achieving the impossible: faith, diligence, and the desire to give back. It is the American dream come true and a stark reminder that saving one can help to save thousands more.

Lopez Lomong chronicles his inspiring ascent from a barefoot lost boy of the Sudanese Civil War to a Nike sponsored athlete on the US Olympic Team. Though most of us fall somewhere between the catastrophic lows and dizzying highs of Lomong's incredible life, every reader will find in his story the human spark to pursue dreams that might seem unthinkable, even from circumstances that might appear hopeless.

Kritikerstimmen

"Lopez Lomong's story is one of true inspiration. His life is a story of courage, hard work, never giving up, and having hope where there is hopelessness all around. Lopez is a true role model." (Michael Johnson, Olympic gold medalist)
"This true story of a Sudanese child refugee who became an Olympic star is powerful proof that God gives hope to the hopeless and shines a light in the darkest places. Don't be surprised if after reading this incredible tale, you find yourself mysteriously drawn to run alongside him." (Richard Stearns, president of World Vision US and author of The Hole in Our Gospel)

Bewegende und Beeindruckende Biografie

Die Geschichte von Lopez ist bewegend und beeindruckend. Am meisten hat mich die Fokussierung von Lopez und die zielstrebige Umsetzung seiner Träume bewegt. Bei all dem was er erreicht hat, hat er nie seine Wurzeln vergessen.
Eine tolle Geschichte und eine sehr gute Umsetzung als Hörbuch. Brandon Hirsch als Sprecher ist klasse.
