“Jesus had you and me in mind when he took the thirty-nine lashes to purchase the healing for all our infirmities. And he had us in mind as well when he inspired each of the contributors for this book to share their lives, their stories of brokenness and healing, their testaments to God’s faithfulness. Thumb through the pages and you will find echoes of your own story there, and you will hear the tender voice of the Saviour beckoning you to draw nearer to Him and to your own wholeness, one lash at a time for Him, one page at a time for you. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, …”
“When I read this book, Psalm 105:5 came to mind, “Remember the wonders he has done, his miracles, and the judgments he pronounced.” Almighty God has intervened in the lives of people who trusted Him. Sometimes the waiting and trusting spanned years, yet He did not fail. It is a blessing to take encouragement from these true, every day yet extraordinary stories and from His Word which is also the ultimate true story!”
“The greatest misconception of Christianity seems to be that faith in Christ is the answer for all life’s problems, trials, and tribulations. Whoever holds that view has not studied the life and teaching of Jesus Christ. True discipleship is actually an invitation to self-denial, suffering and persecution. Christ does not offer to remove our problems, instead, He offers to help us walk through them with Him. In contrast, our culture would prefer to walk around them and avoid any emotional or physical pain. This book is dedicated to the Christians who took Christ’s hand and walked through their difficulties. The intention is that this book of true stories will inspire hope in all who read it, and faith for those who need it. Enjoy!”
