About Left Standing: The Miraculous Story of How Mason Wells’s Faith Survived the Boston, Paris and Brussels Terror Attacks
After witnessing the devastation done by the Boston and Paris terror attacks and being critically injured in the Brussels bombing, Mason Wells was left with third-degree burns, emotional scars, and a shaken spirit. How could a merciful Father let evil prevail? Why had Mason been saved? What did God want from him? This miraculous true story will change how you see your own struggles and teach you the true power of forgiveness, perseverance, and faith.
I like to read non-fiction books on Sunday. This was the book I read a week or two ago on a Sunday. I had heard of Mason Wells, but I didn’t really know his story. Learning about him and about the things he has gone through really touched me in a way I didn’t think was possible. And I enjoyed reading about the things he’s learned along the way.
Mason witnessed in some way or other three different terror attacks. And he learned different lessons from each of them. It’s a little crazy to me that he was involved in three different attacks. What are the odds of that, probably not very high.
One thing that really impressed me about Mason was the way he doesn’t look at the world, even now, and see only bad. I think that would be a natural reaction after seeing so much evil. He also has worked really hard to be able to forgive those who caused these attacks and moved on with his life.
I loved the way this book was written. The reader sees things through Mason’s eyes. Mason is an inspiration to us all!
I purchased a copy of Left Standing with my own money.
