Description

In her most personal audiobook yet, popular speaker and best-selling author Sarah Bessey invites us into her long — and sometimes miraculous — road to recovery after a terrible accident and shares how it changed everything she believed about God.

Sarah Bessey was in her sweet spot: a popular author, sought-after speaker and preacher, and an active and engaged mother of four, married to the love of her life. Raised within the Word of Faith and prosperity movements, which declared that obedience to God led to untold blessings, her life seemed to prove the preachers of her childhood were right. Then she was in a car accident with life-shattering consequences, and everything she thought she knew about God and faith was upended.

Weaving together theology and memoir in her trademark narrative style, Sarah tells us the whole story of the car accident that changed her body and ultimately changed her life. The road of healing leads to Rome, where she met the pope (it’s complicated) and encountered the Holy Spirit in the last place she expected. She writes about her miraculous healing, learning to live with chronic pain, and the ways God unexpectedly makes us whole in the midst of suffering. She invites us to a path of knowing God that is filled with ordinary miracles, hope in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, surprising holiness, and other completely reasonable things.

Insightful, profound, and unexpected, Miracles and Other Reasonable Things is a wild, spirit-filled story of what it means to live with both grief and faith in our hands as we wrestle with God.

    Sarah has the most beautiful way of making space for the not-yet, for the unknown, for the almost-there. This book is for you if you find your faith wavering or even gone. It was a breath of fresh air for me in a season of questioning and wondering what it means to be a believer when church is often off-putting and unpalatable. I hope you love it as much as I did.
