Story Behind the Book
Phil Callaway wrote this book after a five-year journey he and his wife embarked upon when she began having seizures. He discovered that when life throws you curve balls, juices lemons in your eyes, scrunches you in a knuckle sandwich…the last thing you want to do is laugh. And at the moment we realize that life can just plain stink, "this book helps us know where to go from that point," he says. Celebrities like Dave Dravecky, Barbara Johnson, Gloria Gaither, and Joni Eareckson Tada have endorsed Callaways positive approach to trials. "Everything Phil Callaway writes is full of life because hes discovered a fabulous secret: The joy of Christ doesnt go away, even when life is a mess," says evangelist Luis Palau.
