In this second portion of the interview Louis Zamperini focuses on how he came to know The Lord Jesus Christ as his Savior. Louis then goes on to recount how the Lord radically changed his life and gave him the ability to forgive his captors who treated him so harshly in a Japanese prisoner of war camp.

Found Online: An Interview with Louis Zamperini


 

Today’s broadcast of the radio program “A New Beginning with Greg Laurie” featured a fascinating interview with Louis Zamperini who is the subject matter of the New York Times bestselling book Unbroken and the upcoming film by the same name. I read the book a few months ago and I’m looking forward to the movie.

In the interview that aired today Louis recounts some of the amazing experiences in his life– running in the Olympics, meeting Adolf Hitler, stealing a Nazi flag (and getting caught), serving as WWII bomber rear tail gunner, crashing at sea, surviving 47 days in the Pacific Ocean on a raft, and surviving two and a half years in a Japanese slave labor camp. However, the greatest part of Louis Zamperini’s life story is how he came to faith in Christ after returning home when the war was over.

You can listen to part one of the interview here: A New Beginning with Greg Laurie – A Visit with an American Hero.

Part two is scheduled to be broadcast tomorrow.

The movie Unbroken is scheduled to be released on December 25, 2014.
