Item description for The Sinking of the Titanic and Great Sea Disasters by Bob Garner & Douglas W. Phillips...

A few years ago, I met Bob Garner, executive producer at Focus on the Family Films. When he was a boy, his grandmother had shown him a copy of an old, illustrated book about the Titanic. He told me that the book left a deep impression on his seven-year-old heart. One image in particular haunted him: that of the hand of God holding the Titanic with a quote from Scripture, "Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand?" (Isaiah 40:12). That illustration reminded Bob that God was sovereign. Years later, while working with Robert Ballard, discoverer of the Titanic, God used the memory of that book and the story of the Titanic to bring him closer to the Lord. Intrigued, I asked my staff to track down an original copy. What I found fascinated me: the true account of men who gave up their lives for women and children because they grew up in a culture of Christian family values. We reproduced The Sinking of the Titanic to give you the look and feel of a vintage classic. We have received hundreds of testimonies from families that have used it for devotionals, and from boys and girls who just can't put it down. Book Description This is the greatest account of bold manhood in maritime history.This is the true story of the RMS Titanic as told by the people who knew. Download Description SIXTEEN boats were in the procession which entered on the terrible hours of rowing, drifting and suspense. Women wept for lost husbands and sons, sailors sobbed for the ship which had been their pride. Men choked back tears and sought to comfort the widowed. Perhaps, they said, other boats might have put off in another direction. They strove, though none too sure themselves, to convince the women of the certainty that a rescue ship would appear.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Sinking of the Titanic and Great Sea Disasters?

The Sinking of the Titanic and Great Sea Disasters  Jan 4, 2007
Very good reprint of the original book. I own the original, but it is in very poor condition, so this reprint allows me to read the book as printed in 1912, without further damaging the orginal. Definitely a good value.
Rebirth through a Reprint  Aug 12, 2000
Because I have an original copy of this book from 1912, I was especially interested when I saw that it had been reprinted. I'm not sure why it took so long for me to know it was reprinted, but I just found out and bought it. My initial fascination with this grand ship was sparked by this very book, and lives on today. I have many Titanic books, and though I appreciate color, nothing can top this original. It's one of my favorites!
The Sinking of the Titanic and Great Sea Disasters  Jan 12, 2000
A truly wonderful but heartbreaking true story upon story told by eyewitnesses. No talking heads building it up all out of proportion that we"re so full of today. So little is mentioned today of the fact that this ship was on fire {coal bunkers} when it sailed. I own an original copy and am curious as to it"s value?
The book is great  Sep 27, 1999
I really enjoyed this book. I have always been interested in the Titanic I have one of the original books that has been in my family all these years and was always hearing about the titantic and now the book belongs to me. It is a 5 star book.
Awesome book!!  May 3, 1999
This is a very great book. You won't be able to put it down. The insights into what really happened that night in April will keep you reading the book in one sitting!
