This is a book about grace, a living epistle of its sometimes graphic, always mysterious reality in one man's life. Yet it is for and about us all. Calvin devoted sixty-two of ninety chapters of his Institutes to explaining it, and ended by citing Augustine, "I count myself one of the number of those who write as they learn and learn as they write." Wesley delineated it as prevenient, justifying, sanctifying. Joe describes what it looks and smells like from a cargo plane between Cam Ranh Bay and Bien Hoa, Vietnam, to an upside-down recently crashed Rambler on the southbound lanes of the New York State Thruway, to a day when the Word became flesh and leapt into his heart. This is one writer's descriptive reflection on grace, and it is riveting. Moments of grace: they abound herein. Read for information; read for understanding. Yet mostly may you read to believe and see more clearly such moments in your own life, and then to love more dearly, and follow more nearly the author and weaver together of them all, waster of none. David B. Humphrey, Pastor, Mariner's Bethel UMC, Ocean View, DE Vietnam. African safaris. September 11th. A horrific car accident. Life-threatening Illness. Hello, Joe examines the personal adventures of professional writer and award-winning journalist Joseph Scott. Having survived more near-death experiences than most men have the privilege of retelling, Scott's narrative explores the ultimate spiritual redemption on which he eventually stumbled, and the deep appreciation he now holds for life, faith, and the second chances that he was granted. A powerful story of life and a moving testimony of hope, this journalist's memoir captures both the imagination and the heart.
