PRE-ORDER NOW! Unthinkable: True-Life Story of Rob Colombo

Front Cover: Unthinkable: True-Life Story of Rob Colombo


“Honest, challenging, inspirational”

“Rob’s testimony is both inspirational and amazing, yet it reveals honest confessions because the miracle did not nullify all of the ripple effects of the catastrophe. A lot of personal growth was called for, and the same God who gave life again, gave the personal growth needed to accept it. This book is short but powerful. A must-read!”
— Doug Joseph, Bestselling Author of the Skyport Chronicles


Rob Colombo’s true story is amazing, yet it’s more than that. Like other miracle testimonies, his is not a clean-cut account, yet it is powerful and challenging. As does the biblical Book of Job, beyond relaying the miraculous events, illuminating visions, and spiritual perceptions that he experienced, through both prose and poetry, Rob reveals visceral longterm effects of tragedy upon one’s life and faith, and probes intense questions of the meaning and purpose of existence.


Rob Colombo is a living witness to the miraculous. He survived and recovered from a crash with trauma so massive that every doctor said he would never make it. He resides in scenic Clarksburg, West Virginia, which is nestled in the picturesque foothills of the Appalachian Mountains.

Excerpt: A policeman stopped by one evening and asked if I would go with him. They had a bad situation in a motel across town. A man was holding another man at gunpoint, threatening to kill him over a woman, and promising to take his own life. He had asked for a minister. When I arrived, Bob told the man that he had a preacher.

The man shouted out, “I want to hear him talk.” I told him who I was. He said that just last month he had come and heard me preach. After courteous exchanges, I said that I needed to come inside the room to talk to him. I walked in without his answer.

There he stood, holding a large-caliber revolver up to the side of this man’s head. I called him by name and walked over to their sides. The man in the chair was trembling, and with a quivering voice he told me that he didn’t want to die. The man with the gun reassured me that he was going to blow the man’s brains out and then kill himself.

I calmly said, “Well, if you’re going to die, let me pray for you both before it’s over.” I asked for God’s mercy and told the Lord to be kind when He dealt with their wretched souls, and that I didn’t want to see them go to hell. I never closed my eyes. I literally was watching and praying—with good cause. In a moment, with both of them weeping, I reached out and took hold of the barrel of the gun, and I slowly pushed it to point toward the floor. I kept on praying in the Holy Ghost, and he released his hold on the pistol. When we walked out of the motel, the policeman, Bob, commented that I was either the craziest man that he knew or the bravest.

Dr. David M. Hudson, Superintendent, WV District, United Pentecostal Church International
