"Wednesdays were pretty normal," writes Michael Kelley, looking for a bright spot amidst the chemotherapy routine brought on by his two-year-old son Joshua's cancer diagnosis. His book of the same name offers much to anyone who's tired of prescriptive spirituality and would rather work through the difficulties of faith with transparency.
Joshua battled and beat the disease but not before his family had to reconcile what it means to trust God in a broken world. Their story shows how Christians must learn to walk in the light of Christ's promises despite the dark shadows of earthly pain. Such pain sometimes opens the door to a deeper experience with Jesus, an authentic relationship that holds steady when life loses the comfort of normalcy.
