Real God.A car without brakes racing toward a speeding train, an injured man alone in the woods, a stroke victim rushed to the hospital. These are among the fifty true stories in this book, all from one church, ...that show God helping those in need. God is with each one of us: we have only to open our spiritual eyes.The stories of the miraculous are here. Yet, they have not been trumpeted in best-selling books, but by people simply living the Jesus-life! The stories of word and deed are here. People would experience the deeds of God and then were ready to hear the Word—yes, even signs and wonders. All of these are noted in these stories.Dr. Jo Anne LyonGeneral Superintendent, The Wesleyan ChurchFounder, World Hope InternationalThere is nothing more encouraging and compelling in our own journeyof faith than to hear the personal stories of God’s faithfulness to others.The power of the New Testament disciples’ witness was in the simpletelling of what they had “seen and heard.” We are indebted to the authorof this collection for bringing together these contemporary storiesof witness, and trust that the Holy Spirit will speak through them as Hespoke through the witness of the first century disciples so long ago.Shirley A. Mullen, Ph.D.President, Houghton CollegeIf you want a real-life glimpse of some ways God actually shows upin human affairs, JoAnne Jones’ Fifty True Stories is the book to read.Then prepare to build a bigger box for your faith. I predict you willlikely need it.David L. Thompson, Ph.D.F. M. and Ada Thompson Professor of Biblical StudiesAsbury Theological SeminaryWe do walk by faith, and not by sight. But every once in a while,God gives us a uniquely grace-filled experience that gives us a sacredglimpse of His hand and presence in our lives. As you read these storiesof God-sightings, your faith in our invisible God will be deepenedand enriched.Dr. Jack ConnellSenior Vice President for Advancement and External RelationsRoberts Wesleyan College and Northeastern SeminaryThe Bible is the account of the many ways God made Himself knownto His people, speaking in a variety of ways through the centuries andfinally fully disclosing Himself in Jesus, the Christ. God With Us is anexciting account of God continuing to make Himself known in a varietyof ways: answered prayer, guiding one’s steps, providing for personalneeds, giving protection, and physical and emotional healing,to name a few. The real-life stories of the book are contemporary evidenceof God being the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Theystir one’s faith and expectation that God will respond to prayers andgenerously meet our needs. They illustrate afresh the divine promise,that if we call upon His name, God will answer our prayer and do soin such a way that we know His presence is with us, giving us greatconfidence to face the future and many challenges of life.Rev.
