From Publishers Weekly
When the phone call came at 12:35 a.m., a bleary-eyed Kent listened as her husband passed on the unbelievable news that their son, a United States Naval Academy graduate and Navy lieutenant, had shot and killed his wife's ex-husband. During those first few hours after receiving the harrowing news, major decisions, both legal and financial, needed to be made quickly. So began the Kents' two-and-a-half-year journey that led to the trial, conviction and sentencing of their son for first-degree murder. Kent (Tame Your Fears; Becoming a Woman of Influence; Secret Longings of the Heart), whose position as President of Speak Up Speaker Services made her the family's primary breadwinner, had no option but to continue working and speaking throughout this ordeal. She wondered if people would even want her as a speaker if they knew she was the mother of a murderer. Using a biblical story from Genesis 22 where God asked Abraham to literally "lay down his Isaac" as a sacrifice and then intervened at the last moment, Kent prayed for a similar miraculous outcome for her son. She shares her story with a transparency and vulnerability that readers will find both disarming and bracing. The Kent family's ongoing fight against despair and hopelessness is fittingly paired with their resolute faith in God's ability to transform even the most crushing circumstances into something good.

Reviews - What do customers think about When I Lay My Isaac Down (OP)?

Very thought provoking  Oct 31, 2008
Carol Kent and her husband have gone through an extraordinary experience. None of us know when we might also be faced with such an ordeal. It will make you think. It will make you mad. It will make you wonder why. But, you will still believe in a faithful God at the end!
Revealing story  Sep 8, 2008
This is a good story of a family struggle. Could be any of us, but for the same reasons, personal growth. The growth of the individual players in this drama are compelled to come to grips with their foundational beliefs and to then use that growth in their daily lives. Well written, but was read poorly on the CD. It needs work to muster through, but it was good.
Trust and obey  Sep 5, 2008
I had expected more from this author. For me, the analogy got lost in the revelation of her personal struggle. I still highly recommend this book as it addresses such an important topic. We can let nothing deter our commitment to trust and follow, especially in our darkest hours. Our Isaacs come in many forms as do the rams in the brush, but God is constant.
Heart Wrenching  Jul 29, 2008
Carol's book is heart wrenching. We have only one child also, and we have had to "lay our Isaac down" and trust that God will take care of our son. Reading Carol's book made me realize that I am powerless over some circumstances, but God is still in control. I have a feeling though, that this book would not be understood by those who are not Christian. The idea of trusting a God who would allow so much pain is hard for people to understand. I'm a Christian, and believing in a God who allows horrible circumstances in our lives is hard for even me to understand. Carol's book helped explain how we can still have faith while experiencing difficult times.
Grabs the heart.  Jul 21, 2008
While Carol's experience is somewhat unique, her story and the application of the principles of faith to our own difficulties and disappointments in life, as well as others around us, is uplifting, encouraging and filled with hope. This book helps us to look outside of the dark and isolating closet we find ourselves in when an Issac experience enters our lives, or those around us, and see that we can carry on.
