Item description for God in the Whirlwind: Stories of Grace from the Tornado at Union University by Tim Ellsworth & Morris Abernathy...

Overview
When a powerful EF-4 tornado with winds in excess of 200 miles per hour slammed the Union University campus on February 5, 2008, destroying eighteen dormitory buildings and causing $40 million in damage, the immediate assumption was that dozens if not hundreds of lives would have been lost. Miraculously, nobody died, and the next morning major media outlets flocked to Jackson, Tennessee, where Union students and faculty credited God for their survival and got to share their faith with millions worldwide.God in the Whirlwind recounts the entire experience through twenty eye-of-the-storm accounts from those who saw the walls and ceilings crashing down upon them and felt their ears pop as the pressure dropped, from anxious parents who waited for their child's call, and from Union leaders who marvel at the university's unbroken spirit in the face of such devastation. This inspiring book also includes eighty photographs that visualize God's mighty hand upon nature and his gentle hand of grace.

Reviews - What do customers think about God in the Whirlwind: Stories of Grace from the Tornado at Union University?

Highly Recommended!  Jul 18, 2008
Just over five months ago an EF-4 tornado with winds over 200 miles per hour slammed into the campus of Union University in Jackson, TN. Remarkably, no one was killed, although the campus sustained $40 million in damage. In the days following the catastrophic events of February 5, numerous stories of God's providence emerged from the ruins. My friend, Tim Ellsworth (director of news and media relations at Union University and sports editor for Baptist Press), has taken in hand to provide the first hand accounts of God's providence from select individuals who experienced these events. The book, published by B & H Publishing, is titled God in the Whirlwind: Stories of Grace from the Tornado at Union University. Buy the book, read the book, and be amazed at God's providential care of the students of Union University. Tim Ellsworth quotes from John Flavel's The Mystery of Providence in his introduction to God in the Whirlwind:

"If Christians in reading the Scriptures would judiciously collect and record the providences they shall meet with there, and (if destitute of other helps) but add those that have fallen out in their own time and experience, O what a precious treasure would these make! What an antidote would it be to their souls against the spreading atheism of these days, and satisfy them beyond what many other arguments can do, that 'The Lord he is the God; the Lord he is the God' (1 Kings 18:39)."

The stories recounted in God in the Whirlwind are certainly worth telling. I am thankful to God for his faithfulness during this time of crisis and to Tim Ellsworth who has preserved precious accounts from "our own time and experience". May this book be used by the same Providence that protected during the storm as "an antidote . . . against the spreading atheism of these days" until every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.

God in the Whirlwind: Stories of Grace from the Tornado at Union University
Paul Harvey might describe this book as "The REST of the Story" surrounding the miraculous protection of students caught in the February 5, 2008 tornado that destroyed 70% of the school's student housing and significantly damaged other buildings. The author has compiled students' first-hand accounts of the storm. He weaves in tales of parent responses when they hear that the storm is pounding their children's dormitories. And he reveals some of the innermost thoughts of Union's president David Dockery, who knew there was no margin for errors in the monumental decisions he needed to make in order to ensure the immediate welfare of the students and the quickest possible restart of classes and activities. This is a powerful testimony of faith, hope, thanksgiving and determination. It is uplifting and inspirational, meant to be shared.
