"Following this father's painful footsteps is to walk on sacred ground. But God has gifted him to eschew the maudlin. Because he never manipulates his readers, you're left free to apply the lessons he learned to your own experiences."
-- Joel Belz, Founder, World Magazine
"I have read the full account of Caleb's life in The Caleb Years, and I'm glad I did. Especially, I appreciated that David didn't offer saccharine answers. He showed the raw, up-and-down vulnerability that always accompanies such a trial."
-- Phillip Yancey, New York Times best-selling author of The Jesus I Never Knew, What's So Amazing About Grace and dozens of other books
This is a marvelous story, crafted in language honest and vivid, sure to deepen the faith and joy of the reader. --Eugene Peterson, author and translator of The Message

From the Inside Flap
Caleb was born with several undiagnosed congenital anomalies and endured ten major surgeries. His father writes the story, saturated with both pain and prayer, but remarkably without a trace of bitterness. His marvelous witness written with such skill, crafted in language honest and vivid, will not fail to deepen the faith and joy of all who trust God.
-- Eugene H. Peterson, Professor Emeritus of Spiritual Theology, Regent College, best-selling author and Translator of the The Message Bible
David Ingerson's compelling portrayal of a father's heart agonizing for his suffering son, desperate for God's intervention, graphically demonstrates faith forged in the crucible. This is what utter dependence on God looks like, and a story that will challenge all of us.
-- Mark Batterson, New York Times bestselling author of The Circle Maker
Top customer reviews
If we think about it, everyone knows someone in their church or circle of friends who is in crisis. Reading this book can be a comfort and strength to the reader's own crisis. There are nagging questions of why but as Kathy Ingerson writes in the Epilogue, "Humbled, my why questions no longer seemed so important or necessary. I was no longer plagued by my anxious need to understand. I would trust in the One who had sacrificed all for me." (Page 288)
There is some challenging reading in this book but it combines with valuable insights about the life of faith for every Christian.
