Book Description

Imagine in your darkest moment, as you lay on deaths door step; The God of the universe reaches down (in the most amazing, miraculous way) and hands you the ultimate second chance. Then does the same thing for your brother the very next day!! ALL because a stranger from a 1,000 miles away, was convicted by God to give his kidney away.... 

This is a very powerful book about the author's experience in facing the ups and downs of kidney disease--After playing Jesus Christ in a local passion drama for 9 years, his world is turned upside down; As he states in the first chapter, "this would cause me to question who I was, all that I had believed, and God himself." We live through Troy's journey and the emotional and spiritual roller coaster with him, but always we sense God in control of the situation-even when all seems hopeless.

You will find yourself eagerly reading, in suspense, wanting to find out what happens next and how God will work. The author merely talks to us as if to friends, sharing something wonderful and awesome that happened to him; How at death's door step, he found God's Hope, Peace, and the reason for it all.

"I knew all of these things happened for a reason! God revealed afterwards, the reason for the pain, was to bring Hope, the reason for the Hope was to bring the miracle, and the reason for the miracle was to write this book to share the Hope with you!!" - Troy Lewis

This book really isn't just one persons story of trial - its every ones story, because it's God's story. Through it you will learn to persevere, that what may seem like a closed door is really just a redirection to something even better. This is a beautiful inspirational book of love, struggles, Faith, and Hope. When a person is feeling down or lost in their own troubles, it will be an excellent resource to read over and over again. It'll make you laugh, cry, hope, reflect, and by the end.. Praise in victory!

Review

"Whoever says miracles don't happen hasn't met the Lewis brothers! This story is a perfect example of how a loving God is orchestrating his will in the lives of the men and women he created. I am honored to have shared this story with Mid-Michigan."

From the Author

Many people have asked me "What made you decide to write a book?"

The answer is really very simple!

Imagine for a moment; You have struggled and battled for your life! The odds were always against you and seemed like nothing ever went your way. Just when things looked absolutely hopeless and you didn't stand a chance. Your laying on deaths door step!

THEN! 48 Hours later...
The God of the universe reaches down (in the most amazing, miraculous way) and hands you the ultimate second chance. Then does the same thing for your brother the very next day!!

ALL because a stranger from a 1,000 miles away, was convicted by God to give his kidney away....

I knew all of these things happened for a reason! God revealed afterwards, the reason for the pain, was to bring Hope, the reason for the Hope was to bring the miracle, and the reason for the miracle was to write this book!!

God gave me a second chance and with it, THIS STORY!

So you see... The answer is simple. I had to write it because God wanted me to. He wouldn't have created such a dramatic story if He didn't want it told.

What would you have done?....

5.0 out of 5 stars Awe-inspiring January 31, 2012
Format:Paperback
Another Second Chance...God's Story, by Troy Lewis, is an awe-inspiring story of the love and grace of God. It is told in heart-felt first person in such a way that the author comes to life. Although we have probably never suffered from a kidney disease and needed a transplant, we can identify with his dilemma. We have all faced times in life when the road dropped out from under us, times we've stumbled in darkness not knowing which way to turn, times when we felt our hope was snatched away from us. Troy's story, God's story, is a reminder that with God we always have hope. The difficulties and trials of life are opportunities for God to show Himself faithful, to demonstrate His power, to shower us with His love. I am an avid reader of Christian fiction and non-fiction, and this book touched me in a way that nothing else has. I recommend Another Second Chance to anyone who needs a reminder of the goodness of God and the goodness of true Christians.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome story! May 20, 2012
Format:Paperback
Another Second Chance

Another Second Chance ...God's Story By Troy Lewis Is an awesome story about how God works in your lives. This book touches everyone from the people that may have went through a similar situation, also the people that are the care givers to those people and to the doctors and nurses not to mention those that know people like this and we have prayed for! Get this book, read it, share it's message of faith and trusting in God, of giving; weather that is the caregivers or people that donate organs down to those that give to help the family in need what ever it may be! This book is a blessing! A must have on my library shelf, a keeper to read again and again! Thanks Troy for wonderful book!

5.0 out of 5 stars God's plan includes miracles January 28, 2012
Format:Paperback
Imagine yourself in your early 20's, it's 1992 and, recently married, you discover you have a kidney disease that will be dormant for about 20 years before becoming a threat to your life? Well that's the beginning of Troy Lewis' story. His is an inspiring life built on a foundation of faith in God's plan for his life that becomes a roller coaster ride. That ride leads to questioning what God's plan really is when the obvious path becomes a detour rather than the one Troy envisioned.

The author invites his reader to share his story in light of their own life challenges, offering them strength in seeing how his own is supported by God leading to two amazing "saves" as suggested by this title, "Another Second Chance." Yes, its Troy's story, but in its telling we learn of a "miracle" (don't want to give away that part to lessen your reading pleasure) that adds a beautiful surprise element to not just Troy's story, but truly "God's story" and therein lies the message of this engaging and easy reading book.

Troy, playing the role of Jesus in their local church's annual Passion play for nine years, finds a strong connection between that and the lifesaving altruistic kidney donation from a stranger that adds the extra dimension to what is almost a common transplant event these days, raising the reading of his book beyond "just another story." Troy takes his readers on a very open and revealing inner view of life lived in kidney failure as he endures stage 5 kidney failure at the young age of 42. His clear explanation of complex technical topics such as dialysis, fistula, costs, etc. provides an education useful to both patients and families facing kidney transplant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Second Chance February 2, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Let me start this review off by saying most of you know me personally and know that I have been very sick with my kidneys for years. This book could not have come at a better time for me. The Lord knew that I needed to read this now.
My best friend found Troy on line and she said you have to read this book it is just what you need right now. Well with out further a do, she sent a message to Troy asking him to send me a copy to read and review. And he gladly mailed a copy right out to me.
The day I got Troy's book in the mail I also got 5 more books to review so I set out reading them and never thought about Troys book until I went to the book shelf picked it up the next in line to be reviewed and it was Another Second Chance and I started reading it. I was in awe of this awe inspiring book. It touched me so deep. This book is such an inspiration to me that I will read it over and over again.
I cried so many times reading this book, happy tears, tears of joy. I feel like Troy AKA Jesus ( you will get this after you read the book) was meant to be a part of my life even if just through his book.
I want all of you who love me and are a part of my life to read this book as soon as you can. You will get to look into my world a little by reading this book. If you read no other book this year PLEASE READ THIS ONE.
I am crying so hard as I am sitting here typing to you all. Most of you know I don't like long reviews but I felt those of you who loved me would really like to know how I felt about this book.
I am sure that you will see God on every page just as I did!
You will even get to meet Jay who by the way is Troy's angel.
I highly recommend this book. I give this book 5 stars two times it is such a great book.
I was given a copy of this book by the author. THANK YOU TROY!

Who knows maybe I will get my Second Chance
