Item description for On Earth As It Is In Heaven by Christine Kennevan...

Overview
A heroin addict, a Mennonite family, and a baby; what could they possibly have in common? A Mennonite family, while driving home from the county fair, discovers a baby has been placed in the back of their van. At the urging of the police officer, the family takes the baby home to wait for a call from social services-a call that never comes. Nine years later the heroin addict, the baby's natural mother, resurfaces to claim her son. "All things work together for good to those who are in Christ Jesus," at least according to the Bible. How can Freida hold on to her faith when tragedy strikes and nothing makes sense anymore? Can the lessons the child has learned while living with the Mennonites sustain him, or will he be brought down to the level of his surroundings? Can he even survive another season with his natural mother? And who will prevail in the end? This story will transport you to a place where cars are the exception and buggies are the norm, where neighbors are lifelong friends, and where people practice their faith in God day by day, century by century. You will find Promise, Pennsylvania to be charming, humorous, and sometimes tragic, but always compelling-a real page turner.

Reviews - What do customers think about On Earth As It Is In Heaven?

on Earth as it is in Heaven  Dec 31, 2003
This was a very heartwarming book.
 
Inspiring  Sep 1, 2003
I loved this book for its overall content, and its inspirational message. The scripture references were meaningful and gave me "food for thought" as I read each chapter. The compassion, knowledge and humor of Ms. Kennevan brought her characters to life, and into my heart. I laughed and I cried. I truly enjoyed every word, and learned from the characters about faith, acceptance, family, love, diversity and hopefulness. I sincerely look forward to Ms.Kennevan's next book.
 
Moved a grown man to tears.  Aug 23, 2003
