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. 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. His entrapment forced him to think about what really mattered. Unshaken includes color photographs and the heartrending reflections from Woolley's wife. Readers will learn new truths from Woolley's themes of spiritual and marital renewal, his key insights into poverty through Compassion International, and his hard-won reminder to embrace every opportunity God gives.
