Read full description of the books:
A Step Further by Joni Eareckson Tada and Steve Estes provides an in-depth, yet understandable study into what the Bible says about God's role in and response to human suffering. The wisdom of this woman is comparable to that of the great theologians, but she explains truths in a simple manner that even a child could understand; plus, she backs up her words with scripture references so her audience can read God's words and discern whether or not she is accurately representing the Bible's doctrines.
I would highly recommend this book for any believer and for anyone who faces suffering--from financial woes to emotional crises to serious medical conditions and disabilities. Joni tackles the tough subject of why God allows suffering in His people and why he does not intervene more often with a miraculous healing. It is an encouraging message from a woman who has dealt with what we would consider more than her share of suffering.
I read the older version of this book because I happen to own it, but would love to read an updated version. I also look forward to reading more of her more recent works. Joni is still ministering from her wheelchair every day. She continues to write, speak and draw; she also supplies encouragement to thousands--even millions--of people every day through her blog and radio devotionals. She been a quadriplegic for 44 years. A couple years ago, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Despite her suffering, she smiles, encourages and shows the reality of her situation. She doesn't smile through her pain and simply say, "I'm so blessed!" She reveals her struggles and is real about her situation.
