Kentwood , MI – WEBWIRE

Vietnamese minister presents through book a rare account of the devastating effects of the Vietnam War on a personal level.

The Vietnam War has been told about in many war movies, fictional geopolitical novels and TV series. However, so few authors have tackled the destructive conflict in the midst of the Cold War from a perspective that matters most - the common person affected by the fighting.

Rev. Peter G. Vu, a Catholic priest serving in the Diocese of Grand Rapids in Michigan, United States, is one of those few authors. In his book, “Living for a Higher Purpose: Story of a City Boy Who Survived the Viet Nam War by Living for Jesus and Others,” he recounts the memoirs of a Vietnam War refugee named Viet who, despite insurmountable odds, escapes the post-war Communist regime to the United States to start a new life.

The book gives readers a rare look at the ordeals faced by the South Vietnamese people after the Communist forces from Hanoi take over Saigon, now named Ho Chi Minh City, told from Viet’s eyes. You can follow Viet’s story starting from his years spent living under the Communist government, to his successful escape to the United States. You can also experience for yourself his efforts and his ordeals to survive as a refugee in the land of freedom and opportunity.

Most important of all, readers see how Viet’s unwavering faith in the Lord Jesus Christ has provided him the strength he needed to make it through the loneliness, discrimination, poverty and the feeling of hopelessness as a refugee living in a new land. Readers can also bear witness to how Viet’s discovery of a higher purpose in the service of God has freed him from his shackles and brought him peace.

Rev. Vu describes his book as “part history… and part personal diary,” interweaving historical accounts of the conflict leading to the end of democracy in South Vietnam with Viet’s eyewitness recounting of the actual events and how it had affected him, his friends and family.

Living for a Higher Purpose: Story of a City Boy Who Survived the Viet Nam War by Living for Jesus and Others is available in paperback editions in Amazon.
