Bryan Clay, Joel Kilpatrick – contributor – Redemption

This is the story of the most unlikely Olympic decathlete in history. Despite size and stature, Bryan Clay is the defending champion of the 2008 Olympic gold medal and winner of the 2004 Olympic silver medal in the decathlon. His journey is as inspiring as it is gritty, as troubled as it is triumphant.

Far more than just a sports memoir, Redemption details the drudgery, devastation, and ultimate conversion that led Bryan to become a world champion.

“[God] had a plan when I believed that dreams never came true because, in my life, they never did,” says Bryan.

Through a remarkable series of events and devoted prayers of his mother, Bryan’s life was turned around into a victorious narrative of truly being redeemed.

noise soaring

I listened to this book years ago when it first came out and I didn’t agree with it. Now almost 10 years later I listened to it again through Audible. How was I wrong all those years ago. Now with much more experience I see how H.H. Dalai Lama was correct then and now. He explains how its not religion that makes it wrong, its the people that decide to make it their way. We can call this extremist view of a religion. We also see why people need religion in their lives and others don’t. H.H. Dalai Lama goes into details as to how Buddhism works and why it helps people. Here I learned why meditation is so important and how it helps people. Study after study have proven this and yet it’s not being taught. I wonder why? H.H. Dalai Lama also goes into each religion needing to teach their true religion to keep extremist from gaining a foothold. This book has, so much we can go into however I recommend you read it.
