  • EPA 2018 Christian Book Award Finalist - Biography and Memoir
"When my doctor told me I was dying, I came alive." What happens when you come face-to-face with your mortality? When your body fails you, what happens to your faith? Russ Ramsey was struck by a bacterial infection that destroyed his mitral valve, sending him into heart failure and requiring urgent open-heart surgery. As he faced the possibility of death, he found himself awakened to new realities. In the critical days and months that followed, Ramsey came to see the world through the eyes of affliction. He grappled with fear, anger, depression, and loss, and yet he experienced grace through the suffering that filled him with a hope and hunger for the life to come. This profoundly eloquent memoir gives voice to the deepest questions of the human condition. In the midst of pain, we can see glimpses of eternity.

Editorial Reviews

"In this intriguing memoir, Presbyterian pastor Ramsey ( Behold the Lamb of God) delves into what happened to his faith when his body began to fail. . . . Ramsey isn't afraid to embrace hard topics honestly, asking 'What sort of faith could I honestly claim if I required the God I believed in to do only what made sense to this earthbound creature?' He is also endearingly vulnerable and humorous in describing the fallout of his affliction, such as when he vented an unexpected and unbidden string of profanity in response to a neurological miscue. This candid and compassionate set of reflections on suffering will appeal widely."
"His memoir gives voice to the deepest questions of the human condition. Struck is vulnerable and honest about the deepest questions of life we face, but it reminds readers that in the midst of pain, we can see glimpses of eternity."
"A very honest, personal, and readable accounting of a Christian’s dealing with both the threat of death and the promise of life everlasting, this book is well worth reading."
