Reviews - What do customers think about Walking Towards Hope: Experiencing Grace in a Time of Brokenness?
A gift and an inspiration Aug 26, 2008
Is it wrong to say I "enjoyed" reading this book? It is written so well, the style and phrasing are tremendously engaging, and the bittersweet narrative and how Beckingham has expounded on the theme of hope are compelling.
I would love to see this book reach a wider audience. The story of his growth in self-understanding and relationship to hope carry the book for me, a non-religious person. He teaches so much about brain injury and brain function and the psychology of a man, and about the power of love and family. This book could be a gift and an inspiration to more than just the Christian audience for which it was published.
A True Story of Endurance, Hope and the Human Spirit May 19, 2008
Paul Beckingham gives an account of being near fatally killed in a vehicle accident while in Africa. With the support of friends and family, Paul heals and is rehabilitated. Written with insight and humor, the book covers Paul's near-death experience to his rehabilitation to his continued work for people. When people talk about internal strength, well, here it is.
A book that tells what comfort Christians can experience within their faith when in severe need Aug 10, 2006
"Walking Towards Hope: Experiencing Grace in a Time of Brokenness " is an amazing narrative by Paul M. Beckingham, a Baptist minister and survivor of a terrible brain injury compounded with many other severe injuries incurred while driving in Kenya with his wife and son. Subsequent to his terrible accident, a series of incredible events finally allow Paul to begin to build his life again, but not before he has been through great pain, travail, desolation of spirit, and confusion. He experiences a loss of a concept of 'normalcy' in his life. The incredible stages he is still progressing through include a place called "I Don't Know," which is what he says to people who sometimes request of him to explain what his plans are now that he is improved. The answer is often painful and uncertain, but it has its own gift of faith and grace in a time of brokenness. Dr. Beckingham is a remarkable human being to share such a painful, personal journal of his life and faith experiences. "Walking Towards Hope" may not be a comfortable book to read, but it is a book that tells what comfort Christians can experience within their faith when in severe need.
An Incredible Story of Hope and Survival Jul 23, 2006
Paul deals with the intense subject matter of having life as he knew it shattered in an instant. A pleasant surprise is his sense of humor remains in tact throughout the book, even as he looks back on the accident itself. He describes in detail what life was like before the life-altering accident, and the challenges he and his family faced afterwards including physical, emotional and spiritual aspects. This book will be an incredible help to anyone experiencing a life-shattering situation of any kind. You will find hope, the hope that Paul found, in the pages of this well written book.
