by Michael J. Norman, DC
Although a combination biography and inspirational book, “Unbridled Grace” at times reads like a novel, full of intrigue and suspense. Dr. Norman tells the story of how he was unwittingly drawn into a massive fraudulent medical ring run by the Russian Mafia. Eventually, he breaks free of the mobsters only to find himself facing an equally daunting foe: the US justice system.
What allowed him to survive and regain his physical, mental and emotional equilibrium was his renewed faith in God and his dedication to the Christian faith. A turning point was his meeting with a Catholic parish priest who gave him the courage to forge a path through his crises. “All of God’s new doorways for our lives can be bigger than the previous ones, if we use our power of choice for Him,” the author states.
The book, published in 2011, has received excellent reviews from literary critics and readers, earning it 4.8 out of 5 stars among Amazon readers. One review, from a member of the Catholic Press Association, noted that “When reading this book, one realizes the great power of God’s grace and the only thing we need to do as human beings is simply ask for His grace and assistance. Dr. Norman’s book keenly shows all of us that struggle that divine assistance is simply a prayer away.”
The book is available in both paperback and Kindle editions.
