With more than 200,000 copies sold, Diamonds in the Dust has become a devotional favorite. Joni shows us precious jewels of biblical truth that lie scattered amidst the gravel of life's dusty road."The book you hold in your hands is my treasure trove of diamond chips I've collected over the years," says Joni. "I've carefully selected favorite gems, ones I've often held to the light, turned this way and that to admire their beauty, diamonds that have made me rich in faith and wealthy in hope."These 366 meditations uncover a wealth of promise, of eternal truths waiting to transform the events of our lives into facets that catch and reflect God's glory. Written from the perspective of a woman who traverses life in a wheelchair, this book wipes away the surface grit of suffering and circumstances to reveal the radiant hope that each of us can claim.Diamonds in the Dust takes theology and gives it flesh, breath, and emotion.

Because of its beautiful theology of suffering, if Diamonds in the Dust were the only accomplishment of Joni Eareckson Tada, it would be highly prized by its readers for the unique beatitude of the author's soul. But when the reader remembers that these remarkably faith-filled devotionals radiated from the soul and heart and mind of a person who, though paralyzed from the shoulders down since 1967, ministers to others going through a period of pain or suffering in their lives, then her thoughts become singularly precious.Words inadequately describe the almost supernatural courage of this inspiring Christian woman to glorify God through her sufferings. In Diamonds in the Dust Joni personally affirms that in losing something temporal we can grasp something eternal.
Joni Eareckson Tada has known the grace of God for 30 years after being paralysed from the neck down in a diving accident. Joni is president of JAF Ministries, an organization that accelerates Christian ministry among people with disabilities.

She is the author of more than 30 books, including the bestsellers Diamonds in the Dust, Heaven, and More Precious Than Silver.
In 2003 she was given the Gold Medallion Award for her book When God Weeps and in 2004 for co-authoring Hymns for a Kid's Heart, Volume 1. Her award winning and best-selling autobiography, Joni, was adapted as a full-length feature film. Tada also serves in an advisory capacity to many Institutes concerned with disability, writing and evangelism worldwide. She has been given many awards and holds several honourary doctorates. Joni and her husband, Ken, live in Southern California.
