An exploration of identity and faith, Seeing Through the Fog invites readers to a vibrant life, an expectant life, a life of joy in each new morning.
Pastor Ed Dobson has spent his life preaching sermons, but this book is not a sermon. He has spent more than ten years with a debilitating illness, but this book is not about grief. He has found joy in the midst of sorrow, but this book is not about looking on the bright side.
Seeing Through the Fog is about living well when you realize you cant live forever. It is about having gratitude for each sunrise, birthday, and moment of knowing God more. It is about holding hope when circumstances hold pain.
With stories, wisdom and unique content distinct from the popular film series about Ed, Seeing Through the Fog will encourage readers in their own difficulties and give them hope for their future.
Ed Dobson, pastor emeritus of Calvary Church in Grand Rapids, Michigan, serves as an advisory editor for Christianity Today and consulting editor for Leadership.

BarleeFloridaAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent!August 24, 2015BarleeFloridaAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I take care of a man who has Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis. This is the worst kind of MS there is. He is confined to a wheelchair and has to be propped up with pillows because he is no longer able to sit up straight. Alot of times he has to be fed because he cannot get the spoon to his mouth. Anyway he is not a Christian and he does not want to me to talk about Christianity or read the Bible to him, but he read this book TWICE! God was at work when Mr. Dobson was writing this book! Thank you.
WoofiejoAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Finding Purpose Through SufferingSeptember 29, 2013WoofiejoAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5A genuine and heart-felt look at what it is like to walk through adversity with deep faith. In this book, Ed Dobson chronicles his account of living with a degenerative medical condition (ALS) and not giving up on his faith. He finds purpose in his suffering and develops an attitude of thankfulness_.not for the disease, but for all the things that he does still have. Oh, I have a lot to learn from this man! He is humbled by this disease and learns about different types of blessings that he has been given. He finds new ways to have purpose in his life and still be an encouragement (even to others with ALS).
He cites that healing from a biblical perspective is not necessarily being cured, but first being at peace with God. The 2nd aspect of healing is to live at peace with others - so he goes about the task of asking forgiveness from others he may have previously wronged in order to say that he lived life with no regrets. In the final element of healing he learns how to be at peace with yourself and your circumstances. In a brilliant analogy, Ed says that he could relate to Jesus who also knew the limitations of living His life in the flesh (vs. being the divine God with no limitations) and this gives him added strength.
Another important insight that Ed shares: A common question people ask is "Where is God when life falls apart?" Ed comes to find that He is there in the people He puts around us. Wonderful insight!
I believe that as long as we are alive, God still has a purpose for our lives. For that reason, I say "Well done, Ed!" I think you found God's purpose in all of this and encouraged so many with your story. I've learned a lot from reading this book. You are an inspiration!
I received a complimentary e-book of Seeing Through The Fog from David C. Cook in exchange for a fair and unbiased review.
