A Place of Healing
- Product Review (submitted on April 10, 2011):
A Place of Healing by Joni Earekson Tada
Read by Joni Earekson Tada
Whether you are familiar with Joni Earekson Tada or just being introduced to her, one thing will become obvious to you – she has a deep love for God and His Son Jesus. Something else is very evident – she has and continues to submit willingly, but not blindly, to His sovereign plan for her life.
This sovereign plan for her life is nothing short of amazing. Though a quadriplegic since her teen years, the result of a diving accident, Joni continues to go forth valiantly following her Lord. Joni expresses her submission to God’s sovereignty when at one point in the book she says, “My wheelchair is a place of healing”.
This book is a wonderful blending of Joni’s life as it was, is, and continues to be. She lets us into her innermost thoughts. In that sense it is autobiographical. She uses this autobiographical information as a springboard for a wonderful teaching on God’s Sovereignty and His will concerning healing.
You will be blessed as Joni narrates her own story. You will be amazed at God’s grace when you find out that it was with much difficulty that she recorded this audio book. It is not for sympathy that she even mentions this difficulty but rather to glorify God and to magnify Jesus. She does not have all the answers and she will sometimes even question God about her situation but not with despair. She knows and trusts the One in whom she has believed.
