Item description for On Fragile Wings: Stories of Hope from the Inner City by Doug Forsberg...

'There I will give her back her vineyards, and will make the Valley of Achor a door of hope' - Hosea 2:15About one mile south of Jericho lies a valley called Achor. The valley received its name, which literally means 'trouble, ' during the days of Joshua when Achan was punished by death for the crimes he had committed. Since that day the Valley of Achor has come to represent the place of suffering.Doug Forsberg has ministered in the Valley of Achor of our day: the inner city. A place of suffering, a place where crime, hunger, domestic violence, substance abuse, and every vice imaginable dominate and waste countless lives. But in the midst of suffering, he has witnessed wonderful glimpses of God's grace. He has seen the lost find a door of hope in Jesus Christ.Here are stories of hope to heighten our awareness of God's presence in every situation - including our own. Paper.

Reviews - What do customers think about On Fragile Wings: Stories of Hope from the Inner City?

Finding Hope in a Bleak Urban Landscape  Oct 10, 2007

Never trite or trivial, this book tackles the tough questions of urban society --- the issues we turn away from, "changing the channels" so that we don't have to deal with intractable problems.

Forsberg writes deftly and calmly, like a sprout pushing up into the sky through baked or frozen earth. Tender and vulnerable, the young plant may or may not ultimately succeed --- but for the moment its very appearance is an encouragement and a positive sign.

Positive signs. This book is filled with them: documented, transcribed, written with amazing grace. If you are a student of sociology, urban life, human relationships, or political science --- you will enjoy this book.

If you're simply a reader who enjoys finding gifted writers --- you've just found one. Doug Forsberg communicates powerfully and well.
