The author shares his faith story in a narrative that highlights the Joy that God wants to give His people. He shares powerful experiences of God and revelations he has received from the Lord beginning with the Jesus movement up to today. A good book to read if you like Spirit-filled adventure!

I have known of Mr. Banov since I was in high school when I bought his Silverwind album “Song in the Night.”  I’m surprised I didn’t wear the grooves off the album, I played it so much.  Even as a teenager, I was afraid of the dark, so this song in particular soothed my heart.  I had always been interested in the Soviet Union and fascinated with stories of those who escape Communism.  (Even to the point of getting my master’s degree in Soviet Studies.)  Fast forward many years, and I found myself searching YouTube for Song in the Night to play for my own young daughters.  I had forgotten how soothing the song was and how full of hope it made me.  

I found this book fascinating, how God intersected Mr. Banov’s life in so many different and miraculous ways.  I know many who have escaped Communism, and joy did not mark their lives.  So I read with great interest how joy in Christ transformed Mr. Banov’s life.  I was very inspired to face my own challenges armed with the same joy.  

Thank you, Mr. Banov, for writing about your life.  Your music has meant a lot to me through the years.

I gratefully received an ARC from the publisher and NetGalley in exchange for my unbiased review.

If you are looking for an uplifting read, I highly recommend Joy, by Georgian Banov. He fled Bulgaria, leaving the poverty and misery of communism behind; discovering a freedom only achieved through a relationship with Christ. Georgian Banov and his wife Winnie have traveled internationally helping others find the joy that God has in store for his children. Their music and outreach ministry has brought christian love and happiness to so many who have so little. I found myself smiling as I read.
