Change the way you think about personal challenges. Sometimes we make sacrifices to help us get ahead, to allow us more time with family, or because we believe in the cause. And then there are sacrifices in which we have no say—“Isaac experiences” as in Genesis 22—thrust upon us without warning or survival instructions. This audiobook outlines eight transformational power principles that Gene and Carol Kent learned in the process of facing the news that forever changed their lives: their twenty-five-year-old son, a graduate of the US Naval Academy with an impeccable military record, shot and killed his wife’s ex-husband. Jason Paul Kent, long recognized for his exemplary character, now walks a path no one could have predicted—and his family lives in the aftermath of a devastation most cannot imagine. Carol’s candid retelling of her emotional and spiritual agony will touch your heart. The principles the Kents learned in the process of surviving such unspeakable circumstances will bolster your faith, renew your hope, and challenge you to new levels of personal and spiritual commitment.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 3/31/2010

    " Walking away from this book, it was reinforced for me that God does not put us here to walk alone. We are to be vulnerable enough to ask for help and gracious enough to offer it to those who need it, even through the most painful circumstances. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Colleen | 1/19/2010

    " This was the kind of book I couldn't put down, but at the same time was afraid to keep reading for fear that now that I've read it, God might ask me to lay an "Isaac" down. A really compelling story. "

    " Carol Kent, her husband and her family were shocked, dismayed and had their world turned upside down when their outstanding son-working toward being a Navy seal-killed his wife's exhusband.
