Item description for Ordinary People, Extraordinary Faith by Joni Eareckson Tada...
Overview In spite of a diving accident that has left her paralyzed for more than thirty years, Joni Eareckson Tada has been able to build a life of faith and purpose. The peace she has found as she confronts the painful realities of life as a quadriplegic has made her a hero to many people. In Ordinary People, Extraordinary Faith, Joni lets us know who her heroes are. Inside she tells the stories of people who inspire her with their faith and courage. Although Joni has met many famous "heroes of the faith" through her ministry, the lives she shares here are not the Billy Grahams of the world. They are a mother, a housewife, a nursing home resident, a child. Some are missionaries or pastors; others are bank tellers or data entry clerks. All of these people have touched Joni's life and the lives of others as they found their faith rise to the occasion - to forgive an assailant, to find strength despite the debilitating effects of cerebral palsy, to choose love in the face of racial prejudice, and to discover in the midst of questioning that God Himself is the answer to all questions.
Publishers Description Many people look at Joni Eareckson Tada and proclaim, "She's my hero " But Joni has heroes of her own. She now introduces stories of the people who inspire her most.

Great story! Aug 31, 2004
Brock Thoene is an outstanding western writer, whose action packed books are hard to put down. The Legend of Storey County is the tale of one man's journey through life. Old Jim's life spans many monumental historic events that helped to shape our country. This book is a great buy that you won't regret.
