Title: When Crisis Hits: Christian Reflections on Faith in the Midst of Suffering
Brief Abstract: One Story. This is a story of one family thrust into a journey of intense crisis and suffering. And the faithful surrounding of the family of God, the incredible action of the medical community, and the steadfast engagement, faith, and advocacy of a woman for her husband – who had lived his life for others in ethics advising, teaching and ministry and one day awakened to his own body on the precipice of death.
