Book Reveiw - Prepared For A Purpose by Antoinette Tuff

A Journey of Faith
 
Prepared For A Purpose
by:  Antoinette Tuff
with Alex Tresniowski
Publisher:  Bethany House
Release Date:  January 21, 2014
 
Antoinette Tuff believes that all her life she was being prepared to deal with the event of Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy involving Michael Hill.  She feels the series of events in her life prior to the school being under siege prepared her to help save the lives of the children in the school.
Although the events in MS Tuff’s life are not unique, it is how she responded to those events that makes her story inspirational.  She shows that from a young child how her life was influenced by God’s Word and even when things got tough, she depended on God for guidance.  In the face of much adversity she clung to her faith that God would see her through.  With this being her background, when she  faced Michael Hill holding his AK-47 she was able to remain calm because she knew that God was guiding her demeanor and her words.  Her compassionate spirit caused her to be able to relate with this trouble man in a way that she was able to help him surrender without hurting anyone. 
This book is filled with a lot of inspiration and although we may not face the same situations as MS. Tuff, our lives can relate to hers.  In my opinion this was an excellently written book about faith, but feel there were several things that gave no relevance to the story line.   
Disclosure: I was given a copy of this book by the publisher, Bethany House, through Bethany House Publishing blogger program for review. I was not required to write a favorable review nor was I compensated for my review. The opinions in this review are my own.
