Product Description

When God calls us to lay down the place, ministry or even the person we love most on the sacrificial altar, how will we respond? When her only son committed murder Carol Kent was forced to lay the person she valued most, or her "Isaac," in the hands of God. Fortunately, like Abraham before her, in the midst of her terrible sacrifice Carol encountered the God who loves her more than she loves her Isaac and she learned, little by little, to trust her Isaac to His caring hands. If you or someone you love is in the process of laying down an "Isaac," you will find Carol's heart-wrenching story and godly guidance absolutely indispensable.

Author Bio

CAROL KENT is a popular writer, an international speaker, and president of Speak Up Speaker Services, a Christian speakers’ bureau. Her many books include Tame Your Fears, Becoming a Woman of Influence, My Soul's Journey, and Secret Longings of the Heart (all NavPress).

Publisher's 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.

    This book was given to me by another mother when we were experiencing similar circumstances. What a beautiful book! I have purchased a 2nd one for our church library. Perfect for anyone going through difficult times with a child. Full of hope and grace.

    There are times when life is good and you are just kind of breezing through it when suddenly out of no-where God lets a curve ball come into your life and you are left bewildered, confused and maybe a little (or a lot) scared. These are the times that God wants your full attention.

    Carol Kent's story about letting go of her child and fully relying on God in what anyone could say that is a parent's worst fear was both gripping and moving. She laid it all out there for everyone to read which was truly courageous.

    While I found that the book was somewhat slow in the middle, over all it was really a very good book for every parent who is hurting and maybe having a hard time keeping their faith because their child is in the middle of a life crisis.
