It seems fair to quote Geist's own words about this book and its journey: `What would you do if you knew that, no matter what, you couldn't die? Six years ago, something happened to me. My life was in shambles, and I had romantic fantasies of committing suicide. I listened for God to hear my cries, and He ignored me. At least I thought He was ignoring me. All that changed on February 18, 2006, when He reached into my life and foretold a prophecy: He told me that I would marry a girl that I hadn't even met yet. But this came with a side effect: until this prophecy came to pass, I couldn't die. This prophecy was tested. It was tested as I traveled the streets of East St. Louis by myself, it was tested when I went to one of the most dangerous regions in Afghanistan, and it was tested after I came back from war and found myself slowly emotionally dying. Throughout this entire journey, I was also convicted to write down all my experiences. I wrote down everything that happened to me, whether I understood why I was writing it down or not. And now, after spending the last two years going over my journal and putting it all into one coherent story, I just want a few minutes of your attention.Read more ›
I was wrong.
"I Am Danger, I Am Prisoner" turned all my preconceptions about a book about Afghanistan on their heads. You think you know the war in Afghanistan? You think you know how it goes over there, and the personal battle of soldiers who serve? Oh my friend...you have no idea.
Not only does Danger tell a very compelling story, but he tells it with the raw emotion and experience of a person who actually went through time in Afghanistan. He debunks the myths that the media tells while inspiring courage about the positive things that are ACTUALLY happening.
I cannot stress this enough: this book will be worth the time you give it. A better and more poignant storyteller I have not met. After you read this, you will agree.
The story itself is an amazing journey of Nate Geist from the little town of Zion, IL with no real direction in life to Sgt. Danger Geist who travels to dangerous destinations foreign and domestic to spread the word of God. The honesty, humility, and unwaivering faith that Danger shows throughout would make an excellent fictional story; that fact that these events actually occurred is just incredible. His journey is inspiring, humbling, and entertaining all at once, and that's what makes it a great read.
Pick this one up, there's absolutely no way you can regret it.
