Product Description

"Wednesdays were pretty normal," writes Michael Kelley, looking for a bright spot amidst the chemotherapy routine brought on by his two-year-old son Joshua's cancer diagnosis. His book of the same name offers much to anyone who's tired of superficial spirituality and would rather acknowledge and work through the difficulties of faith with some transparency.

Publisher's Description

"Wednesdays were pretty normal," writes Michael Kelley, looking for a bright spot amidst the chemotherapy routine brought on by his two-year-old son Joshua’s cancer diagnosis. His book of the same name offers much to anyone who’s tired of prescriptive spirituality and would rather acknowledge and work through the difficulties of faith with some transparency.

Joshua battled and beat the disease, but not before his family had to reconcile what it means to believe in God despite a broken world. His dad’s personal account of that fight to survive sparks a larger discussion of how Christians must learn to walk in the light of Christ’s promises despite the dark shadows of earthly pain. Indeed, it’s pain that sometimes opens the door to a deeper experience with Jesus, an authentic relationship that holds steady even when life loses the comfort of normalcy.

Publisher's Weekly

On October 17, 2006, Michael Kelley and his wife, Jana, discovered a rash on the stomach of their two-year-old son, Joshua. A routine visit to the doctor the next morning turned suddenly into a three-year struggle with life and death, faith and doubt, as Joshua is diagnosed and treated for leukemia. In this sometimes gripping, yet often distant and detached, memoir, Kelley shares the glorious ups and the devastating downs that he, Jana, and Joshua went through during these years. He recounts the small moments of joy—such as his and his son’s playing with trains—that could almost make you forget what was happening, as well as the limitations—Joshua’s being hooked up to an IV that beeped incessantly—that reminded all of them of the boy’s condition. In the end, Kelley reflects upon this crisis in his family’s life as a kind of wrestling match with God—like the biblical Jacob’s wrestling match—in which he, and we, are forced to reckon with who we really are, with doubts, selfishness, and fear, and in which God is fighting for our trust. When God has that trust, according to Kelley, God can then give us a name—son or daughter or treasured possession—that signals a new and close relationship. (Mar.)2012 Reed Business Information
