Wrestling with an Angel

Wrestling with an Angel

God and his word are the most important things you can share with anyone, including someone who is suffering because of disability. And not far behind are testimonies of God’s extraordinary goodness, even amid the most difficult circumstances.

Greg Lucas was one of the first people considered when the idea of a conference related to disability and the Bible started to come together. He clearly articulates God’s goodness in all things, seeing his disabled son through the lens of the Bible, not the perceptions of the culture or even his own.

His book, Wrestling with an Angel, sets a high standard for how to talk about one’s own experience of suffering while pointing to our all-sufficient God who is eternally wise and good. It is not just for fathers of children with disabilities; this book is for everyone who loves God and wants to know him.

If you have not read Greg’s book or are familiar with him, this video will introduce you to the speaker who will close our November 8 conference, The Works of God: God’s Good Design in Disability.  Watch the video and then join me in praying and waiting expectantly for what God will do at this gathering in November.
