Wrestling with an Angel by Greg Lucas is one of the best books I’ve read this year. Greg is a gifted storyteller. He’ll take you an emotional roller coaster ride and immerse you into his story of God, grace, and disability. I’ll have to caution you by saying that once you start reading Wrestling With An Angel you won’t want to put it down until you’ve finished it.
The story traces Greg’s personal story in regards to his son Jake. Greg shares how Jake came into their family, lived with their family, and over time led Greg and his wife closer to the throne of grace and a deeper understanding of our Heavenly Father. This book does a marvelous job at tracing how God used–and continues to use–this father-son relationship to teach a dad about his own desperate need for Jesus and his grace.
Wrestling With An Angel is not a “how-to” book on giving practical directions for raising a child with a disability. It’s more of a “how-come” book. Wrestling With An Angel gives a fresh and biblical perspective on suffering and how God can use disability to mold others into the image of Christ.
I recommend this book to every parent of a child with special needs because we need more hope and more of the gospel in our lives as we live the life that God has set before us.
