"Powerful, personal, and faith-enhancing." --Bear Grylls, survival expert and host of Man vs. Wild
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.

I went to school with Dan and I am just amazed by his story. I can't believe what a miracle he is.Published 24 months ago by Justme
An unusual setting for sure: buried under 6 stories! It helped to know that the author of the book was the one under so obviously he made it out. Read morePublished on August 13, 2013 by Gayle Lai
I was immediately drawn in and could hardly put this book down. Dan's writing just helps you feel exactly what he was going through.Published on August 11, 2013 by Cindy Grohs
This takes you on a ride with wheels on 2 tracks at once. Both stories are compelling for very different reasons...but no less inspiring and thought-provoking.Published on August 9, 2013 by Dennis E. Beckwith
