More About Joel Sonnenberg & Gregg Lewis
Sonnenberg was severely burned in a traffic accident when he was two. He is disfigured and disabled. He has received his undergraduate degree from Taylor University and a graduate degree from Columbia International Seminary.
Ever since my daughter met Joel at a youth conference this summer, we have been seeking a paperback copy in English. I'm sure the book is wonderful, but no one in our household is able to translate Spanish to English, so it may be a while before we get to experience it firsthand. Still looking.....
Real inspirational story Jan 23, 2007
The strength and simplicity of Joel inspire me to live a better life. Different from other personal stories of fabulous people I have read, Joel is someone like us, in a small town and solid family. Great book.
You will never forget Joel. Dec 31, 2006
In Joel, you will come as close as you can to seeing life through the eyes of one who has had more asked of him in any single day of his childhood than most of us endure in a lifetime. This is the story of a determined fighter and frankly a roaring success, told with an endearing humility and honesty. Joel can inspire you to look beyond the outward appearance of any disabled person you encounter, to know each is an individual like you in so many ways inside.
I was Joel's Orthotist/Prosthetist at Burke when he was about 4 to 5 years old. I have never forgotten what an energetic and normal boy he was, always ready to laugh. Sweet and rambunctious. At that time I read Race For Life, by Joel's lovely mother, a book I still cherish. I never stopped wondering how his story went on after they moved away. Today I couldn't put this book down until I got to the last page. I feel amazed and somehow proud of that little boy all grown up.
A true story of faith and God's love Nov 28, 2006
A must read for everyone! If you have ever asked the question "why?" whether it was you or someone else, get this book. God has used this gifted man in amazing ways throughout his life. I have had the honor and pleasure of meeting this incredibly humble and generous man. Think your life is hard? We all need to take a step back and see the reality of this story and learn from it. Thank you, God for sharing Joel with the world.
wow, wow, wow May 31, 2006
I didn't go look for this book, but it found me. What an inspirational story. It is painful to read because it fills with all the pain Joel had to endure after the accident. The part when he asked the nurse to please be gentle gave me goose bumps. The book captured Joel's pain, happiness, faith and his love for life. I adore his parents. Through all 10 fingers or no fingers, their love for Joel never change. Eventhough after the accident, Joel lost his eye browns, but he never lost his vision for life and for God.
