Reviews - What do customers think about Rise Up and Walk?
Rae has entered into the rest of her Lord Aug 19, 2001
I am sad to report that Rae recently suffered a heart attack and passed to her eternal home. I served as music minister together with her husband, Merideth, senior pastor, 20 years ago, and I saw Rae's physical deterioration into the wheelchair over a period of years. And yet, her faith was amazing and firm. She never doubted that Jesus would heal her someday. And I cannot doubt that this is precisely what happened. She was a champion for Jesus. Her departure is our loss but heaven's gain.
Healing is a Journey. Dec 28, 1999
I have always thought that God works in ways that are more quiet and subtle than television and Hollywood want us to believe. The subtitle of Rachel Wilfong's book tells the story of her book's theme and message very well. "A Journey to Healing" is exactly what the book chronicles.
This book shows the hope that true faith inspires. Its stories show God at work in the common, everyday events of life -- maybe not the dramatic way we want to think of God, but the way I believe He works most of the time.
The narrative style of the author makes the book easy to read and contributes to the underlying simplicity of the book's message. It sometimes feels as if Mrs. Wilfong is telling you the story face to face instead of through a book.
I recommend this book to those seaking to find God in their own lives and to those who seek to understand how God works in the modern world.
Truth, Whole Truth and Nothing But The Truth Dec 13, 1999
I have read the negative review and am amazed that in this day and time when miracles abound all around us, that there are still skeptics. I know the author and am personally aware of the trials and tribulations she has experienced over her life, but especially the last 20 years.
I have experienced too many miracles to name in such short format, over the past 3 years. There is no doubt in my mind that God is real and is in the healing business. Rachel, the last time I saw her, barely able to get out of her wheel chair much less walk. I saw her last year at a family reunion, and she came bouncing out of their van as if she had never known a sick day in her life. This was all the proof I needed that God had healed her.
Truth is that God warned us there would be agnostics in the latter days that would try to disprove His being, and Christians faithful and true who would portray the very essence of His being.
Rise Up and Walk, is proof in black and white of the power of God and His love for all mankind.
Rise Up And Walk Nov 28, 1999
Despite Ms Wilfong's claim to have muscular dystrophy, neither disease presented in the book (polymyalgia rheumatica and polymyositis)is a form of muscular dystrophy. This misrepresentation does a disservice to people who are truly inflicted with the disease. If Ms. Wilfong is aware of this, she is being less than honest. If she is unaware of this then she needs to do her homework before writing a book. Second, nothing in the book suggests a miracle. Information on treatment is completely inadequate. Third, the book appears to be primarily an exercise in self-aggrandizement with personal anecdotes that would appear to be of interest to few people other than the author and a few close friends.
