The most Amazing Stories of Faith I have ever read!! Apr 3, 2004
My husband, a soldier in the US Army, went to a breakfast at Fort Eustis, VA where the author was the speaker. Knowing I love to read he bought the book for me. I have been unable to put it down. The stories from all over the world are miraculous and the power of God will amaze readers! The title story "The God Who Hung On The Cross" comes from Cambodia, and is a story the reader will want to tell all their friends about.
Inspiring and moving story Sep 9, 2003
Autobiographical, biographical, inspirational, life changing, there are a lot of ways to describe this book, but easy to put down is not one of them. It is the story of Dois Rosser who was raised as a poor child in Appalachia and ended up building churches and establishing broadcast ministries throughout the world. This is the story of the difference that one person, fully committed to God, can make in the world. It is a living illustration of how sometimes things don't go the way that we plan them but we find out later that they went just the way that God planned them.
The point of view switches regularly from that of Dois Rosser as he tells first hand what happened to that of Ellen Vaughn who reports the events as an outside observer. The writing style is graceful and flowing as it draws the reader into the story and the ministry. By drawing the reader into the ministry it creates excitement that can then be used to change your part of the world. This is one of the purposes of inspiration, you become a part of something bigger; an ordinary person part of something that is way beyond ordinary.
"The God Who Hung on the Cross" is an excellent read and highly recommended read for any Christian seeking inspiration and verification that despite the bad news that is constantly played in the media, God is working His will even in the remotest corners of the earth.
