CK23 - Lessons in Grace

Wrestling with an AngelThis week on the Connected Kingdom podcast, David and I interview Greg Lucas, author of the new book Wrestling with an Angel: A Story of Love, Disability and the Lessons of Grace. Greg is the father of four children, one of whom has severe developmental disabilities. Last year Greg began a blog where he began to write about “lessons in the life of a father learned through the struggles of his disabled son.” It is not a blog about disability, but a blog that is all about grace—about lessons learned along the way.

When I co-founded Cruciform Press, Greg was the very first author I pursued and I was thrilled to have him accept and to have him prepare a book with us. That book is now available.

Way back in episode 4 David and I spoke to Justin Reimer, founder of The Elisha Foundation, and Paul Martin. Interestingly, both of those men show up in Greg’s story.
