By Faith, Not by Sight

By Faith, Not by Sight: The inspirational story of a blind prodigy, a life threatening illness, and an unexpected gift.

I remember watching Scott McIntyre on American Idol a few years back. I was very impressed with his talent that year. The way he sang, played the piano and did group performances amazed me. So when I seen this book I was excited to read his story and I was definitely surprised with what I found on the pages of his biography.

Scott is no ordinary person. Attending college at the age of 14 and graduating at 19, he seems to excel at everything he does. When he was 7 years old he was already playing the piano at weddings and events. His blindness does not hold him back from his dreams. His ability to live a normal life despite his handicap is truly inspirational. He shares his story of faith as he faces a life threatening illness. His family is just as inspirational as him. His mom is such a great woman who encourages her children to do the unexpected. without limitations.

There were a few times I felt the book was a little drawn out and a little too "detailed". All in all, it was a good book. I think anyone who reads it will be inspired.

This book was provided to me by the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.
