A praying church, a loving family, and the promises of a miracle working God all worked together to point David to the open door of hope that took him through the dark hours of chemotherapy, blood transfusions, platelet transfusions, delirious fevers, infections, pneumonia, and a ruptured appendix.
Throughout his hospitalization David's faith encouraged hospital staff, other patients, and the members of his church. Seeing the miracles of healing in others, changed lives, and with the miracle of David has been called to a ministry of point other to the open door of hope offered by the Lord Jesus Christ.
I found the final chapter and the reunion with his individual family members tender and heartwarming. These emotion packed moments that reveal how having "dad" home affected each family member differently as they faced the prospect of losing their father.
Each chapter includes a section titled "My Personal Journal of Hope." Insights and probing questions included in these journals challenged me: to step our of my comfort zone, to develop a new dependence on Christ, and to make a difference in someone else's life.
"Hope Beyond Reason" is a positive testimony relating the story of Pastor Dave Hess and battle against death. David's writing is heart-wrenching and inspirational. David offers an open door of hope to everyone during their desperate hour of crisis.
When we are faced with our own mortality, we cope in diverse ways. Dave Hess chose to make the Lord his strong fortress and believe that his fate and life were in the hands of the Great Physician. The prayer support he received from his family, his faithful wife, and his church, is certainly part of why he survived this deadly disease. His recovery from luekemia proves there is hope beyond reason.
This book is written in a format conducive to small group Bible study, with questions and discussion points after each chapter (there are 13 chapters).Read more ›
