It all began one sunny Sunday afternoon when Kevin and his son Alex were involved in a serious traffic accident. By common human understanding, Alex should not be alive today. The first vertebra below his skull had been pulled apart from the second vertebra and it stood at a forty-five-degree angle. His parents were told that he would never speak or be able to swallow, his brain would never function normally, and he would be paralyzed from the neck down.
One miracle after another is documented in this book, a very fascinating story indeed. I know that many might be skeptical as to the events portrayed in this book. But who are we to say that these extraordinary and miraculous events did not happen?
I believe that a very good indicator of truth is measured by who gets the glory. Without a doubt, this entire story is centered around God's amazing grace, His healing powers, and His incredible love for a little boy and his family.
After one particularly difficult surgery, while still groggy from his anesthetic, Alex's main concern was whether all the medical staff surrounding him had a personal relationship with Jesus. Sounds like we can all earn a lot from a little boy who has figured out what is really important in life.
A great story that will give you a fresh perspective on the unbelievable faith of a child, I highly recommend this book.
