A Personal Journey in the Midst of Unexpected Detours

“Kisses from A Good God” is Paul Manwaring’s story of a personal journey through suffering that turns tragedy to triumph and victory.  Paul guides the reader through Abraham’s inspiring journey of faith. He helps the reader learn from the life of Moses, and the Psalmist as they experience periods of waiting. He teaches lessons from the example of Job through his trials and ultimate twofold restoration.

Manwaring’s writing is genuine and authentic, filled with encouragement, solid biblical principles, personal experiences, and practical applications. His writing is both profound and inspiring. Paul is transparent as he offers fellow travelers on the path of suffering and trials a message of hope and healing. His life is a portrait of “theology in action” relevant to all of life circumstances, faith and character. Paul details the dangers of allowing feelings of shame to keep you from letting God manifest his love. He describes the melding of medicine and the miraculous as he relates his story of being diagnosed with cancer, subsequent surgery and miraculous healing.

“Kisses from A Good God” is filled with examples of God’s promises of love in the midst of a personal battle against pain, distress, and suffering. This is an important book for believers going through illness and suffering or other trials common to life.

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.

  1. Not trying to steal your thunder, if I may also add.
    .. A good tip that can help you keep your stress levels down is to start
    forgiving people that have wronged you in
    the past. Holding onto grudges will keep you feeling stressed out.
    Get rid of all that negativity and start letting the past go.
    It can help you out a lot.

  2. Thanks for the helpful tip. Mark Twain put it this way. “Forgiveness is the frgrance the violet sheds on the heel that has crushd it.” The principle of forgiveness is among the core keys to Christ’s teaching.
