Publisher's Description

Following God’s call to cross cultural mission, Ellis’ experience from riots, political upheaval, physical hardship, and burn out, to caring for his wife, Adèle, through her Alzheimer’s, he would have been unable to hold fast without a robust biblical understanding of God’s providence and sovereignty. With feeling and honesty Ellis weaves anecdote with biblical meditation, allowing scripture (especially the pivotal Psalm 2) to form the lens through which the world, in all its frightening chaos, is viewed. A personal, pastoral, faith building read, it offers scriptural reflection not trite answers – robust biblical wisdom for guidance, encouragement and challenge for Christians of all ages and stages.

Author Bio

An engineer, former minister of the Church of Scotland and Director of OMF International UK, David Ellis and his wife Adèle travelled widely together for more than fifty years of service. After caring for Adèle through her Alzheimer’s he now lives in Dundee and serves as an elder in the Free Church.

Editorial Reviews

David and Adele Ellis became part of my life towards the end of Adele’s – when they became part of St Peter’s Free Church in Dundee.  This book reflects exactly what I knew of both of them – wise, Godly, interesting , faithful, biblical and deep. I love it. This is not your run of the mill missionary book: it’s full of bible teaching, missionary work, practical experience devotional and so much more.  From the loss of a niece in the Dunblane shooting to the loss of his wife through dementia David tells a painful, wonderful, beautiful story.  The accounts of life in Indonesia and the testimony of their son John at his mother’s funeral are worth the price of the book alone.  Personally I will never forget that testimony or that day.  This book will help others to share in it – and to learn so much more!

-- David Robertson (Well–known pastor and apologist)

Rich treasures from two rich, rich lives. Sandwiched by their own love story at the beginning and the end, David Ellis writes beautifully and profoundly, and challenges us as readers to a faith that is daring and uncommon today.

-- Os Guinness (Author and Conference Speaker)

This book does not tell us how to find God. Instead, it shows us how God finds us through Jesus Christ… that death shall die, for Christ is our witness. Ellis’ vulnerability and transparency stand out in this heart–warming and deeply moving book, and everyone should read it to the very end.

-- Patrick Fung (Director, OMF International)

For those lost in the misty flats of shifting values and shaking foundations, this book brings hope. The anxieties, warmth, humour, and trust in the Lord that come through, have not been put together to enhance the readability of the book. They are the authentic David, as he is and as I have known him many years.

-- David Pickard (Former OMF General Director)

… records the stories of God’s faithfulness and mysterious providence in the pain, triumph, and silence of the mission field. This book is a testimony that God is faithful and he is sovereign. Read it and be reminded that God rules over the nations.

-- E.D. Burns (International missionary & Director of the MA in Global Leadership, Western Seminary)

David’s honesty and touches of humor in speaking of lessons learned enables us to better grasp God’s unique work in each of our lives and to motivate us to press on and finish life well.

-- Dan Bacon (Leadership Consultant, OMF)

 … David doesn’t hesitate to bare his soul, and grasp the sovereign compassionate promises of God. As you read, you’ll walk with David and almost feel his pulse beat. You’ll laugh. You’ll ponder deeply your life’s experiences as you measure yours against his. You’ll be spurred on to greater trust in the Way, the Truth and the Life. Enjoy and grow.

-- Robert Benn (Minister of the Presbyterian Church of Australia)

David is a man who has experienced danger, sorrow and difficulties in some of their rawest forms. Yet what he has given us is a warmly written book, full of Scriptural reflection, that will both move and instruct its readers to see God’s faithfulness in every part of life.

-- Andrew Hunter (Director Scotland & North Of England Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches )

This is the story of love and of faith; but even more it is a testimony to the grace and utter trustworthiness of God Himself. Here are the contours of true discipleship. Read and ponder!

-- Rose Dowsett (Retired member of OMF International, former Vice–Chair of WEA Mission Commission, lecturer and author)
