One Life to Give Paperback – January 20, 2015
|New from||Used from|
...most of those reached have been existing in lifelong conditions of abject poverty, hunger, inadequate shelter and clothing, often terrible , unimaginable abuse, and certainly fear and hopelessness. Imagine what the message of the Gospel means to them! Ultimately this is not a book about Rick Blaisdell, but rather a testament to what God can do through a humble man of giant and unwavering faith, even now in the 21st century. I highly recommend this book. The expanded and updated edition is wonderful.
Former Hospital Chief Executive Officer
May you discern, through Rick's journal like style of writing, that mission's work is not an act of work. This book is not about the act nor the logistics of mission's work, this is not about the "number" of people that Rick ministered to. It is about the "One" he ministered to. Each chapter retelling of supernatural events, healings, and deliverances will serve to encourage you in your walk with Jesus and in the ministry field he has equipped you to operate.

Rick shows so much clarity in his walk with God. This is what I feel and hear from this wonderful book. . We are all in need of some good news...this book is the good news. Read and rejoice. Psalm 63:7 says, "Because you have been my help, therefore in the shadows of your wings, I will rejoice".
The improvements made in the rewriting of this novel were remarkable. I think the new book now captures the reality of it all and how the author becomes who God wants him to be. I could feel the experiences and appreciated the history of the journey. Everything seemed to jump out in detail and is an excellent rewrite to an already awesome book. Lorraine D.
From the Author
This book was written to be an inspiration to those who may think that just because they are only one person, "What difference can my life make"? If that is you considering whether or not to read this book, please do.
This book is a witness and a testimony of how God has taken a former drug addict and alcoholic, and transformed my life into something more precious and valuable than I ever knew possible. It is also written to give you the reader, the courage to never give up, and never look back. Keep a willing and open heart. God has great plans for you and your future. You have a destiny to fulfill. Allow God to use you as one of His chosen vessels for all the time you have left to serve Him.

The author's accounts offer powerful evidence of what God can do thru a man of giant faith who releases that faith to God completely in order that He may accomplish His miraculous purposes. Throughout the book there are countless testimonials to that faith and power.
Finally, the reader will enjoy the immediacy, the sense of sharing experientially everything as if in real time that is enabled by the author's use of the journal style of writing here. His descriptions of the spectacular views during his long flights and the atmospherics of these far away lands are a feast for the senses and truly beautiful.
The work chronicled in One Life To Give has transformed many, many lives for eternity. The book itself is transformational. Prepare to be inspired. You will not be disappointed!
This new book is a sequel to his previous edition that remarkably captures the transformed life of one former drug addict into a mighty man of God. This book will move one beyond complacency into the supernatural workings of a “supernatural” God. With true-life testimonies that came from the real moments, the author engages readers to consider that you being only one person CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. This is why he wrote the book. His testimony bears the witness of a chosen vessel moved by God beyond his own borders to share the love and compassion of Christ around the Globe. Readers will be inspired by the many supernatural and mighty works of God displayed throughout, as this book ignites a passion for the Gospel to be preached around the world.
Sharing his travels from 1991 to 2011, the author has composed his many years as an evangelist, preacher and teacher with eye-witness accounts by Blaisdell of the glorious healing and hope Jesus brings to individuals that are broken, discouraged and in need of desperate help. Find encouragement to do the “real stuff” and find inspiration as the author has given an open invitation to enter into the very heart of God. Divine destiny and purpose are forged through these real life journals of one who has gone abroad and found that his one life does make a difference. Find out that your one life can make a difference as well.
From my perspective, this is book speaks to both non-believers and believers. For the non-believer, the person who is lost and seeking purpose, you are instantly comforted and find a person to relate to as the author shares a biographical account of a man who was once lost and without purpose who found Christ and a renewed strength and purpose in life. For the believer, this is a book that will empower you to get out of your comfort zone and boldly seek to share what Jesus can do for others.
The journals share first-hand accounts of life in foreign countries where the everyday comforts we have here in America are only a dream. Blaisdell is able to take the reader to that very spot on the globe where the struggles are real and where, through Rick, Jesus is able to heal and restore people who are lost. As a follower of Christ, I can say that Rick Blaisdell's story is one that is meaningful, easy to relate to, and inspirational.
