Review of ‘Just the Way I Am’ by Alice @– ‘Just the Way I Am: God’s Good Design in Disability’ is a beautiful coffee-table book illustrating God’s providence and sovereignty in lives affected and impacted by disability. Inspirational verses and pictures show God’s good design in disability and how it can be embraced as positive and God honouring. Many thanks to Alice for taking the time to review this wonderful new book. Here’s a bit of what she had to say:

“I would recommend this book as a great conversation starter both for adults and children. It would be a brilliant book to use with Sunday Club groups to help them think more about including children with disabilities and it is a book beautiful enough to be left out on show and dipped into. On a personal note, it’s encouraged me to remember that God is still good and still in control even when I’m finding things hard because of the impact disability has on us as a family.”

Mez McConnell interview with Mark Dever – This past week, we’ve mentioned Mez McConnell’s autobiography, ‘Is There Anybody Out Here?,’ which we’ve recently released in its second edition.  We highly commend the interview he did with Mark Dever back in 2010 sharing the story of how God rescued him from a life of drugs and violence and sent him to preach the gospel in inner-city Edinburgh, Scotland.  The interview is available as a free download from the 9Marks web site:  LINK.
