Book Description

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. 
 



Editorial Reviews

Review

Rolland and I have had our faith in the goodness of God tested to the extreme over and over throughout our ministry. We identify with Paul Manwaring completely. And like Paul, we have learned to trust God without reserve, however He chooses to love us. We are after the outcome of His dealings with us, which is always more gracious and magnificent than we expect. Read this book to be encouraged all the more!

Kisses from a Good God is an extraordinary book full of encouragement and hope for those in the midst of great physical trials. I loved Paul's transparency and the amazing God-given insights presented in the book will enable you also to walk through cancer, illnesses, and everyday life in total victory.

Paul Manwaring is my dear friend and brother in the Lord.  His new book Kisses from a Good God is a wonderful story of God's grace through the dark times in our lives.  While his story refers to his battle with cancer, the truths stated in this book are relevant to every encounter we have with darkness in our lives.  I have walked through my own dark times from accidents and recovery, through surgeries and healing.  Each of these events has given me an upgrade and new supernatural authority in the areas the enemy attacked.  This book is built on solid biblical principles, personal experiences, and practical applications that will both arm and protect you.  Paul has been faithful to continue the testimony of Jesus, which is the Spirit of Prophecy.  GET READY FOR YOUR UPGRADE!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's just GOOD October 27, 2012
Format:Paperback
Kisses from a Good God is a book that needs to go out en masse and be in every doctor's waiting room, in every patients' hands. It is full of encouragement and wisdom from a man who has gone through the journey of cancer and has overcome. What fascinates me the most about the book is how little attention is given to cancer, but how much attention is given to the goodness of God in the midst of a very serious and personal struggle. Paul brings this out beautifully and not only that but he ends up lifting up all of the others who were involved in his journey. This book is incredibly encouraging to caregivers, physicians, nurses, and patients alike, and just reading it is an experience of healing. It's not only excellent, it is beautiful.

5.0 out of 5 stars We are greatly loved in sickness and in health.... November 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"Kisses from A Good God" is an exceptional book. For me, it was not really about battling cancer...it's about living life as a child of God and dealing with circumstances that we can't explain or understand....and learning that we are loved always....no matter how things look or feel. Sometimes the Lord makes it clear why we face certain challenges (before, during, or after we go through them). Paul shares how the Lord reveals Himself and His great Love for us through all kinds of situations. This book is full of wisdom, encouragement and love. I think it will greatly inspire you to keep on keepin' on. I wish I could explain more articulately how deeply it ministered to me. I encourage you to read about his journey and find out!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely helpful and encouraging! October 21, 2012
Format:Paperback
"Kisses from a Good God" is an incredible book with a powerful and much needed message. Paul Manwaring's testimony of experiencing the goodness of God over and over as he walked through cancer is beautiful, and extremely powerful. This book will be a great encouragement to anyone fighting cancer, or any other sickness for that matter. In particular, if you are pursuing supernatural healing whilst also seeking help from the medical community, it will give you much needed perspective in a potentially confusing time. This book will give you hope in the midst of difficult circumstances. No matter what you're going through, "He's still good!"

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST READ! November 9, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
KISSES FROM A GOOD GOD: A JOURNEY THROUGH CANCER is an extraordinary book. Subtitled ACCESSING GOD'S INTIMATE PRESENCE IN DIFFICULT TIMES, this is an easy yet profound read; no heavy theology to wade through nor "blab it and grab it," pseudo theology run amok. A must read in my opinion for followers of Jesus and for anyone dealing with sickness, disease and the difficult places in life. Paul's testimony gently guides one through his story of discovering afresh what it is to be a son or daughter of God. The shame and confusion that all too often accompany disease, tragedy, and hard times in general are exposed for the hellish scam they are - especially for believers who know the Father's goodness and know that He is a supernatural God who yet heals and delivers. In too many camps there are still questions and faith issues about doctors, medicine and the goodness of God revealed in and through them. I would that every doctor read this book and be blessed, strengthened and encouraged in their mercy filled profession that is an extension of God's own hand. Paul's testimony has done much to empower me to put away the shame, embarrassment, speak truth to the confusion and disappointment, repent for offense held and come out from that company of people who view themselves as second class kingdom citizens not worthy of or unable to have faith for a first class "supernatural" healing.

Buy the book. Read it. Believe it. Receive kisses from a truly good God. Receive healing for body and soul from a God who is unfailingly good all the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing January 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Paul Manwaring exposes himself as few authors would. He walks the reader through his journey with cancer, is honest with the emotions he and his wife went through, and his steadfast faith in God despite the diagnosis. Paul was healed by surgery, but as he points out, this is not a "second class" healing. His writing will give comfort and release faith to anyone facing a serious medical issue - not just cancer. He shows how he got "Kisses from a Good God" every day leading up to his surgery and even afterwards. Highly recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Personal Journey in he Midst of Unexpected Detours November 21, 2012
Format:Paperback
"Kisses from A Good God" is Paul Manwaring's story of a personal journey through suffering that turns tragedy to triumph and victory. Paul guides the reader through Abraham's inspiring journey of faith. He helps the reader learn from the life of Moses, and the Psalmist as they experience periods of waiting. He teaches lessons from the example of Job through his trials and ultimate twofold restoration.

Manwaring's writing is genuine and authentic, filled with encouragement, solid biblical principles, personal experiences, and practical applications. His writing is both profound and inspiring. Paul is transparent as he offers fellow travelers on the path of suffering and trials a message of hope and healing. His life is a portrait of "theology in action" relevant to all of life circumstances, faith and character. Paul details the dangers of allowing feelings of shame to keep you from letting God manifest his love. He describes the melding of medicine and the miraculous as he relates his story of being diagnosed with cancer, subsequent surgery and miraculous healing.

"Kisses from A Good God" is filled with examples of God's promises of love in the midst of a personal battle against pain, distress, and suffering. This is an important book for believers going through illness and suffering or other trials common to life.

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.
