Former WWE World Champion and World Heavy Weight Champion, Shawn Michaels, shares from an unguarded, faith-filled perspective what a real Christian walk is like in an usual world that always straddles the line between real and not.

With millions of fans and numerous awards, WWE superstar Shawn Michaels had adulation and all the attention he could ask for-but then he discovered there was something more. When he became a committed Christian during his years in the WWE, it changed everything.

In Wrestling for My Life , Michaels shares from his heart about the highs and lows of his life inside the WWE. Included are never-before-shared stories and an intimate look into his career, as well as insights from his new life of hunting, family, and faith. Now retired after 25 years in the ring, Michaels reveals what it is like to be a man of faith in this unusual world and shares wisdom for all of us.

"I've lived under my freedom, and I've lived under God's freedom, and there is no comparison. My freedom could have cost me my life. It probably should have. I very easily could have been one of those wrestlers who overdosed in a lonely hotel room." ~Shawn Michaels~

" I have two bad knees, and a shoulder that need to be replaced. I need a heating pad to loosen up my back in the mornings. My physical pains go well beyond "discomfort," but I don't complain about any of that, except to Rebecca. I joke that she sign up for this, so she has to listen to me!" ~Shawn Michaels~

"I had drunk a lot, done drugs, and popped pills for two reasons: because of boredom, and because I was empty, and lonely. My wife used to say that idle hands are the devil's workshop, and that was true with me, because a lot of the destructive things I did were just a way to kill time." ~Shawn Michaels~

"When I became a Christian, I confessed of my sins and God forgave me of all of them. I then entered into a relationship with Him, and my life changed completely. That did not mean that I became sin-free. God loves me. The reason is, simply, because He chooses to. It's not because I have done anything to earn His love. There's is nothing any of us can do to earn God's love. He gives it to us." ~Shawn Michaels~

I'm glad Shawn decided to write this book. It's great that he wanted to talk about his faith in God in this one. His first book was written under WWE, which unfortunately they wouldn't allow him to talk about his faith in Christ. Heartbreak & triumph was him talking about his past. This one he talks about his past, but he is more focused on his present. It's kinda like a sequel. And it's not marked by the WWE, so fortunately he's able to talk freely about God. The book is not overly preached. (Which I wouldn't mind one bit if it was.) Shawn had been through so much. Drinking, and drugs. He is now 100% better than he was in the 90's. God only knows where he would be at right now if he would've kept them habits up. All that he went through is history, old news. It's all about the right now. He is proof that there is a God, and he is still performing miracles.

@Blaisman And what's wrong with him talking about our savior? I would think you know he's a born again believer. So what makes you think that he wasn't going to give all the thanks to the man that saved him? Shawn told us how the book was going to be laid out before it was even released. It's very little quotes in there. I feel it's not enough. Well It's a good thing I don't believe in luck then. This book is great. And FYI why You so upset about someone you pretend don't exist? It shouldn't bother you. If you don't believe.

This book is disappointingly short and undetailed but maybe that's for the best. Good luck not finding a reference to God or Christianity on every single page
