Learn What itís like to Live for Jesus and Others in Peter Vuís New Book


War is always destructive regardless of its size. More than the devastation to the infrastructure and homes, the psychological damage to people is but the ugliest among the effects of war. It displaces people and crushes their dreams.

Survivors of war hardly ever narrate their experiences as it meant taking themselves again to that terrible time of their past when their families and friends were taken away from them. In most historical books, only the major events about the war are discussed, and it is seldom that the narratives of those who were at the time being are included. Peter Vuís ďLiving For Higher Purpose: Story of a City Boy Who Survived the Vietnam War by Living for Jesus and OthersĒ recounts the life of a war survivor and the inspiring journey towards finding oneís calling.

The book is a chronicle of the life of the protagonist named Viet. Before the war took place, he was living a miserable life under the Communist government. The plot of the story revolves around his bitter experiences under his own government and progresses towards the end of the war. When it was finally over, Viet became a refugee to the United States. It was only during that time when he felt freedom for the very first time. He felt he was finally home- something which his own country never provided him with one. Viet then contemplates on his whole journey. When he and his family were terrified with so much cruelty and injustice, he almost lost confidence in humanity. But, when he thinks of the countless times when they almost starved to death, a little help would always save them the following day. It was in those trying times that he thought God took control over their lives.

The author presents the story in a very inspiring way. The order of events will take readers into a walk down memory lane as if the readers have been to the time and era when Viet had those experiences. Although the story is notably a religious text, the style of narration makes the narrative historical, biographical, and even political, making it relatable to all kinds of readers.

To anyone looking for stories of survival and faith combined in a single book, Vuís work is surely a good one to start with. The author wants the readers to understand that the secret to a fulfilling and joyful life is serving Jesus and others.
