By Faith, Not By Sight

This is an amazing biography about the life of Scott MacIntyre. Scott was the first blind finalist to be on American Idol. He played the piano at his first wedding at seven years old. He swims. He skies. He also had stage four kidney failure. He graduated summa cum laude and was accepted into Cambridge University in England. And, as I said, before, he’s blind.

This guy is amazing! This book is an autobiography of his life, and it is so inspirational. Scott MacIntyre has gone through so much in his young life, good and bad, scary and exhilarating, and he praises God through all of it. I have been reading this book as a read-aloud to my family and we all just eat it up. Scott is so amazing and inspiring to others. He continues to push through trials that left my family speechless. This book tells the story of how he had stage four kidney failure at age nineteen and all the doctors said he would need a transplant within the year-the very same year he was supposed to be going to England for school at Cambridge University. Also, this book tells about the little things that he went through and the fear and other emotions he felt when going through them, such as when he lost his first tooth, learned how to swim, competed on American Idol, jumped off a bridge, and traveled back and forth to different hospital through it all. This is a very great book that makes you want to live life to its fullest and celebrate the little challenges as well as the big ones and praise God through it all.

Thank you to Book Sneeze and Thomas Nelson publishers for letting me read and review this book. It was excellent.
