An awesome book! The collection of stories gave me a clearer picture of:
Romans 5:18-21 "Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness[g] leads to justification and life for all men. For as by the one man's disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man's obedience the many will be made righteous. Now the law came in to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, so that, as sin reigned in death, grace also might reign through righteousness leading to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
Despite the tragic events people experienced, it was amazing to read how they saw every event (the bad and good) needed to happen in order to bring them to the foot of the cross, where healing and redemption could be experienced.
