The book Amazing Faith Stories of Christians in Defining Moments by Dwight Clough will strenthen your faith! As Joni Eareckson Tada writes in the foreword of this book; “These stories penetrate deep into the heart and soul of humanity, yet convey the character and attributes of God”
What is the book about?
“We have a place for American spies!” The KGB officer in charge of my interrogation said I was a spy. Oh no, I thought. They’re offering me an all-expense-paid trip to Siberia. Things were not going well. The Soviets had our vehicle. They were interrogating my partner, Roger, in another room. It was just a matter of time before they would discover the Bibles and the printing press we had smuggled into the heart of the communist empire. It was 1961. The Cold War was in full swing. My dream of taking the gospel into closed countries — not to mention my life — could come to a very quick end. What to do?
God has His ways of getting our attention. When George Verwer was arrested by the KGB, he had no idea that God was about to turn his ministry upside down and change the face of modern missions. Fasten your seat belts for this story and many others like it.
Amazing Faith has been called “… the best Christian biographical read I’ve had in a long time. The stories are fresh and engaging. I couldn’t read just one! I found myself so encouraged by one story I went on to the next one, and the next one, and the next one . . .” (Dr. William E. Brown, President, Bryan College)
Foreword by Joni Eareckson Tada
In her Foreword, Joni Eareckson Tada writes: “This is a book of stories about people of faith. These stories penetrate deep into the heart and soul of humanity, yet convey the character and attributes of God. And as I’ve learned through the years, when God is involved, nothing is ordinary. In this book you’ll discover evidence of the extraordinary work of God … when gloom turned into hope; failure gave way to stunning success; miraculous provision arrived; a medical sentence of death was overturned; and a powerful new life ensued. That’s what makes faith so amazing to us. It’s really not about us, but God yearning for us to know Him, and to glorify Him with our lives. The frailty of humanity energized by God’s transforming power.”
