R. W. Long tells this engaging story of faith, illness, and recovery interleaved with the story of his trek to the summit of Kilimanjaro. He paces the stories well so that, by the end, the storylines converge and start to answer the story's central question: Why did God save this one particular man's life? What is God 's plan?
This is a wonderful book. I have Parkinson's disease, too. I find a great deal of hope here but I think that hopefulness would be true for anyone.
As a side note, I first met RW Long as he was training in the hills of Alabama. We walked many miles together after that day and we discussed his mission and goals. He's never waivered.
From the beginning I had trouble putting it down. I am not a speed reader by any mean, but managed to finish it in about 4 days although I work about 18 hour days. The way Long conveys some very real human experiences and emotions as he realizes he has Parkinson's is probably the reaction most men would have. The book is a sea of highs and lows that portray a man that could be any one of us. I fought to hold back the tears between the sadness, happiness, and overall admiration I felt as I turned each page. In our world of pointless possessions, and petty problems, Long makes you remember that having your health and family are what really matters. And never giving up regardless of what God throws your way.
Knowing one of his sons, and having read his book, I have nothing but respect for him and hope I can keep myself centered as I move forward. A must read.
