4.0 out of 5 stars If it could happen to could happen to you, 28 Nov. 2006
This review is from: Taming the Tiger (Paperback)
This real life tale is a deeply moving story of a Kung Fu World Champion. With a fascinating view into the dark side of China's martial arts.

Read how a four-year-old child was taken away from his home and trained and transfered into a killer

Tony becomes an elite bodyguard, protecting some of the world's most powerful people but his heart is stone.

After personal heartache, Tony begins to use his deadly skills for illegal gain and personal kicks. All this lands him in prison and he is totally alone except for the visits of a stranger..but this is no ordinary visitor and he does not give up on Tony.

God has something to say to Tony and this stranger is His messenger.

A complex and fascinating testimony and I only hope this book is widely read and used as an inspiration...

A Wonderfilled book!

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Den Tiger zähmen (Taschenbuch)
Hatte das Buch, bevor ich selber dran ging, schon einigen Kampfsport erprobten Freunden gegeben, die es sehr gut fanden und schnell durchgelesen hatten.
Dazu sei gesagt, dass sie auch diesen Wandel wie Tony Anthony erfahren hatten und somit nachvollziehen können, was da vor sich ging bzw. wie Tony heute
zu seiner Vergagenheit steht. Das können die Leute, die sich das Maul über das Buch bzw. Tony Anthony zerreißen natürlich nicht, auch wenn sie meinen/vorgeben,
Christen zu sein. Man muss so einen Menschen eben erst mal richtig kennen gelernt haben, um das beurteilen zu können, aber die Zunge ist eben meist schneller.
Ich kenne einige solcher Leute, sogar mit noch krasserer Vergangenheit, die wiedergeborene Christen wurden und ihre Vergangenheit auch mit Zeitungsartikeln
etc. belegen können. Dass das bei Tony Anthony nicht so einfach ist, erklärt sich ja von selbst, aber ich denke das Video unten spricht für sich....

Nun habe ich es selber endlich mal ran geschafft und konnte es kaum aus der Hand legen, so hatte ich es schnell durch.
Jetzt ist auch das Hörbuch dazu raus gekommen (bei oder Asaph sehr güsntig zu bekommen) und das habe ich mir
auch im Auto angehört, so dass ich mich immer über eine Spritztour freuen konnte um weiter zu hören. Ich würde dem Hörbuch
den Vorzug geben.

Ich habe mir ein paar Kritiken im INternet von angeblichen Christen und Kampfsportlern durchgelesen und konnte zu dem Schluss kommen, dass da sogut wie nur Müll geschrieben wurde,
wie es halt immer so ist, wenn sich jemand angegriffen fühlt. Ich denke das Video spricht für sich. Bei den angeblichen Christen merkt man schnell, dass sie keine Ahnung von der Bibel oder
echtem Christsein haben, daraus kann man auch schon schließen, dass es auf der kampfsportlichen Seite wohl genauso aussieht. Dann kommt noch dazu, dass sie Stellen des Buches kritisieren,
die sie mal besser genauer nachgelesen und darüber nachgedacht hätten, dann hätten sich ihre Fragen geklärt... aber na ja... so ist das nun mal.... dumm gebabbelt ist schnell und schnell gebabbelt
ist auch meist dumm...

Fiction says:
I am writing this because I was recently told that Tony Anthony's Book "Taming The Tiger" must be true because of all the good Amazon Reviews. So I would like to set the record straight. I understand that the Good Reviews are written by people with the best intentions, but have they actually any proof of Anthony's claims or have they investigated his claims in any depth? Well I have, I have many Documented Proofs that Taming The Tiger is largely a collection of lies and unfortunately Anthony, as an Evangelist, actually preaches these lies to people around the world.

If any one would like to see these proofs, which are exhaustive, then if they reply to this Review with their email address I will contact them. Anthony's Wiki page, that was deleted several years ago through lack of proof, has been put up again, but again through lack of citations to prove any of his claims is reduced to just basic information and even that is awaiting verification.
I am saddened to write this but I believe, along with other concerned Christians friends and associates, that Tony Anthony attempts to spread the Gospel using deceit but the real Good News cannot be spread with lies.
