The Boy Born Dead: A Story of Friendship, Courage, and Triumph

The Boy Born Dead: A Story of Friendship, Courage, and Triumph

$17.99

Paperback
:Where We See Tragedy, God Sees Possibility ...

Few American epics of tragedy, intrigue, friendship, and faith will entertain and challenge the soul like the narrative inspired by the events in the real life of David Ring--a boy literally born dead who survives with sobering consequences. Living with the harsh realities of cerebral palsy, Ring faces impossible odds yet stumbles into an improbable life of inspiration and influence in the small, unassuming town of Liberty, Missouri, in the 1960s.

As a teenage boy, Ring finds himself tragically orphaned and being shuffled about to various homes. Along this journey, he faces secret, unspeakable atrocities that eventually plunge him into the depths of depression and attempted suicide. But amid the harsh troubles of life, he encounters another boy his age named David, the son of a local pastor. Their unlikely friendship begins on the rocks, but eventually develops into something extraordinary and unique that alters the trajectory of both of their lives--and the whole town of Liberty--forever.

VERY REAL, HONEST AND MOVING TESTIMONY.
5 stars By Fiona E Brown, Sep 22 2017
I could picture everything so very clearly such that painful events in David Ring's life left me aching and breakthroughs brought me a surreal joy. A poignant testimony of God working out His purpose in brokenness. 
It is very well written, lots of tangents, but they all had a purpose that pulled together the overall picture.
If you like this testimony I suggest listening to "Miracle for Jen". Another powerful testimony of God working through adversity.
