Product Description

Most Christians are people with problems just like you. Whether they are Olympic gold medalists, musicians, professional athletes, or extreme sports fanatics, they know that God is real and here are their stories. But being famous doesn't make their lives any easier. They still struggle with anger, drugs, alcohol, sex, relationships, despair, and disappointment.

Life takes courage to wake up and face each day. You'll read accounts of miracles, answered prayers, and redeemed lives that will be an inspiration to you. Included is a section at the end of each story called God's Road Map that refers you to passages of Scripture. You'll also find a topical index at the end of the book if you are struggling with a particular issue. Find out where some of today's most amazing young people get their strength to face each day and how you can tap into your inner strength and discover the power of God Unplugged!

Forty-four celebrities answer the question, "How do you know He's real?" in Amy Hammond Hagberg's second compilation, God Unplugged. It's not an apologetic book, but a collection of "true life experiences with God." The lengthy testimonies recount the celebrities' childhoods, professional careers, years without Christ, salvation stories, and assessments of God's reality as demonstrated in their lives. At the end of each testimony is a "God's Road Map" section that gives corresponding Bible verses. These sections deal with issues and themes such as pride, trust, and forgiveness.
The celebrities fall into three broad categories: mainstream sports athletes, extreme sports athletes, and recording artists. Most readers will recognize only a handful of names. Some of them will appreciate the diversity of the contributors, but most will choose which testimonies to read based on familiarity. There's something for everyone in this book, but readers will find that most of it is better suited for someone else. The diversity of topics is that great.
This hefty 450-page package deal might have done better as three smaller à la carte books organized according to the celebrities' careers. Smaller books would have cut down on the overwhelming text and allowed for more pictures. This simpler style would have been much more reader-friendly. Although some of the celebrities are relatively obscure, others will be able to attract a readership simply through name recognition. The challenge will be to maintain that readership. God Unplugged contains many accounts of lives transformed by grace, but it tells essentially the same story—44 times over. Again, it's a bit too much to cram into one volume. Still, God Unplugged is a perfect browsing book for the coffee table.
It will make a good gift for almost any young adult, but very few will read it cover to cover. (Note: Many of the testimonies promote controversial practices such as healing ceremonies and speaking in tongues.) – Rose Rider, Christian Book Previews.com

    If you enjoy reading about celebrity musicians and sports stars who share their earlier tough times, and their joy now that they are Christians, this book is for you. The celebrities are young, ranging from NBA and NFL players to reggae musicians (Mark Mohr with Christafari), Clay Crosse (recording artist), Loren Harf-Loveless (professional wakeboarder) and Zoro (award-winning drummer). These are people who know what doubt and unbelief are, and so it means a lot when they tell how they came to be Christians. I especially recommend this book to teenagers and college age seekers

    This book is amazing. Thats all there is to it. This is an amazing way to read about how God works in, for, and through people, and its something I can closely relate too. Being a younger reader, it's hard to find something God-related that I can focus into my life, and this is totally it. Great job Amy, just amazing.

    I teach in a Christian School in Missouri. I have been reading God Unplugged to my students and have been seeing some amazing results. It has helped them to see that other people, even celebraties, have some of the same problems they face. The scriptures have also helped a great deal being in a translation that the kids relate to. I can see a difference in my students, just by their prayer requests. Thank you so much for providing a tool to help kids find their way. Julie Antle
