Redefining victory through the eyes of a cancer survivor!
Author Paul Manwaring was diagnosed with prostate cancer in January 2008. Kisses from a Good God recounts his journey from the first diagnosis, through the prayers of believing friends and family, his choice to undergo surgery, and to his ultimate healing victory.
Kisses from a Good God provides encouragement and challenges some commonly held beliefs. He removes shame from those who have been healed by the hands of doctors and surgeons rather than through prayer. Instead of simply encouraging you with practical, biblical truths, a clear line is drawn between faith and religion—and redefines victory through the eyes of a cancer survivor saved by God in the form of modern medicine.
If you are now walking or have walked through a life-threatening illness or circumstance, or if you have watched a loved one endure, Kisses from a Good God relieves your body, soul, mind, and spirit of tons of unnecessary pressures and pain.
Selecting forty invigorating excerpts from their popular books, Bill Johnson and his associates have created another cup of spiritual java—an excellent blend of inspiration, encouragement and humor. Take a deep whiff of what Bill, his wife Beni, and their friends Danny Silk, Kevin Dedmon, Banning Liebscher, Chris Overstreet, Judy Franklin, Eric Johnson and Paul Manwaring have brewed specially for you.
The cappuccino-sized stories are guaranteed to lift your spirit and sooth your mind. Flavorful chapter titles include:
Taking Captive Every Scary Thought
Lifeguards Must Be Swimmers
Too Stupid to be Loved
Faith Is Spelled R-I-S-K
Are You a Chevette or a Lamborghini?
As you sip through each chapter, relax in God’s presence, learn to listen to His voice, and follow His directions. God will take you into exciting new territory, and your explorations will not end with the final page of this enjoyable book.
