Sherry Antonetti reviewed my book "Faith Under Fire" and gave it 5 stars.
It's a glowing review obviously. Otherwise I wouldn't share it with you.
When Matt Archbold announced he'd written a book called Faith Under Fire: Dramatic Stories of Christian Courage, I pre-ordered a copy.You can read the rest of the review at Sherry's blog.
When the book arrived, I started it and wept after the first chapter.
These days, when the news gives us a near constant stream of how humanity fails to live out the beauty of God's plan for each of us, this profile of eighteen heroic men and women of all walks of life, is like a tall deeply iced glass of your favorite beverage on a summer evening. They are reminders that even in the midst of suffering, sin and death, God wants to reveal His mercy, His healing, His love, His generosity, His goodness through our lives.
All it took from them, was their fiat, their "yes" to God's will.
Or just go ahead already and order the book at Amazon so I can make you cry too.
"Faith Under Fire: Dramatic Stories of Christian Courage" celebrates the lives of eighteen Christian men, women, and children who chose to do what they knew to be right, even if the rest of the world hated them for it. Read the fascinating behind-the-scenes true stories of Christians who made the headlines, including: Mother Antonia Brenner, Heather Mercer, Fr. Mychal Judge, Jill Stanek, Sister Laura Mainetti, Jack Phillips, Joe Kennedy, and George Isajiw.
These behind-the-scenes stories of Christians who made courageous decisions in a moment of crisis, reveal the courage and inner strength of these individuals who chose life in Christ, even when it meant public ridicule, rejection, or death.
This book is about decisions and consequences and the emotional journey in between, and delivers a beautiful and much-needed message of hope.
