Horizons of Hope ……. Reality in Disability

With Brian Edwards arriving in South Africa tomorrow to embark on a 3 week tour of speaking engagements, it seems fitting to review one of his books.Horizons of Hope (Reprint)

Horizons of Hope is a movingly honest book about Christians who have lived through the reality of personal crisis. The book is made up of 10 individual testimonies of people who have stuggled with disabilities,  but is also brings home the fact that even through those difficulties, disabilities and illnesses, one can see that there is a sovereign plan for our lives as Christians.

Brian has had his own personal experience of  living with disability.  His wife, Barbara, struggled with ill health for 12 years and was confined to a wheel chair until her death in 1998,

Even though I was moved to tears in almost every story, I was encouraged and deeply moved by the testimonies of faith in spite of the personal struggles of the people involved, and I was totally humbled by each story.
