Product Description

In our culture which is so quick to devalue life, Wrestling with an Angel provides a fresh, honest look at one father's struggle to embrace God in the midst of difficult struggles with raising his disabled son. This book is about tragedy, laughter, pain, and joy. It is about faith and grace and endurance and God's unfailing, loving wisdom daily being worked out in each of our lives, whatever the nature or extent of our difficulties. Here is a book that may explain faith to you in ways you never quite grasped, through a life few of us can relate to. When it is all done, we come away better able to live as Christ calls us to live. Paperback.

Publisher's Description

"It sounded at first like something out of an old horror movie. I thought maybe someone was just playing around, but then I heard it again and again, a loud piercing cry, and less like Hollywood every time. The windows were down in my police cruiser on that warm fall day, but I still couldn't tell where the sounds came from. I began looking around for the unlikely sight of someone being disemboweled in a mall parking lot on a Saturday afternoon. Seeing nothing, and still hearing the screams, I called in a 'disturbance.' Around the next corner I found the source of the commotion."

So begins Greg Lucas' captivating account of life as a husband, a police officer, and Jake's dad. Jake Lucas, the first of four children, lives with severe physical and mental challenges. Caring for him each day is an ordeal few of us can imagine, and this story of Jake's first 17 years is not one you will soon forget.

    I purchased Wrestling with an Angel as a Mother's Day gift from CruciformPress, but this short book (108 pages) would make an excellent Father's Day gift as well. Wrestling with an Angel is the grace-filled story of Greg (and Kim) Lucas and their oldest son Jake. Through Jake's serious disabilities, a radical heart transformation occurs in the young lives of Greg and Kim. The countless heart-wrenching challenges the Lucas family faced caring for Jake during the first 17 years of his life bring beautiful opportunities to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I found Wrestling with an Angel to be a inspiring read and one that I did not put down until it was completed. The ten chapters can be finished in no time, but they will cause you to spend more time reflecting on the amazing love of God and give you the desire to tell others about it. A Matthew Henry commentary of John 9:1-3 and two John Newton (the author of Amazing Grace) letters about endurance from suffering are provided on the last eight pages. I cannot recommend this book enough.
