From the Back Cover
In a story of survival, Dan Woolley--who spent 65 hrs trapped beneath the rubble of Haiti's Hotel Montana--recounts his experience living through the 7.0 Haiti earthquake in Unshaken: Rising from the rubble of Haiti's Hotel Montana (Zondervan).
After a last-minute hotel switch, no one, not even Dan's wife, knew where he was staying while in Haiti. Trapped in total darkness for nearly three days, with a broken foot, his leg ripped open and a head injury, Dan battled despair, dehydration, anger with God and doubt over whether he would live to see his wife and two young sons again.
Woolley had allowed his faith and marriage to weaken in the busyness of life. Now, his entrapment forced him to think about what really mattered as he struggled to hold on to hope and stay alive until he could be rescued.
Unshaken includes color photos Woolley took under the rubble, the good-bye notes he wrote to his family in case he was never rescued, and heartrending reflections from Woolley's wife as she waited for news as to whether her husband was alive. You will be captivated by Woolley's themes of spiritual and marital renewal, the ways in which his faith sustained him in the life-and-death situation, and his insights into poverty through his work with Compassion International, the world's largest Christian child development organization.
