The Life of Billy Kim

The Life of Billy Kim
by Billy Kim

Overview: As I read this book, I was constantly amazed that God could have used one man to accomplish so much. The list of his achievements seems unending! The book is broken up into three parts: first, the story of Billy Kim's younger years, his salvation, and his work as an evangelist; second, his philosophy of business related to the radio he ran; and third, stories of true servants, including his wife, that he met along the way.
Positive elements: This is an amazing story of God's working around the world.
Negative elements: The book's organization is a bit confusing with the three different parts all telling a different aspect of his life. The book also has so much detail...sometimes too much. Especially the parts about the radio station were a bit over my head. The writing is also a bit choppy, but that's understandable seeing that Pastor Kim is Korean, and English is his second language.
Conclusion: I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to be encouraged by the amazing God we serve. My husband found Pastor Kim on Youtube. He spoke at the Moody Founders' Week 2015. It was fun to listen to him in person after reading about him!

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
