About The Book:
The attending physician set his little body aside and tended to his mother for eighteen minutes. Now, more than sixty years later, that boy leads an internationally known ministry that encourages hundreds of thousands every year. traces the roots of this harrowing, humorous, and heartfelt story.
Few American epics of tragedy, intrigue, friendship, and faith will entertain and challenge the soul like the narrative inspired by the real-life events of David Ring--a boy literally born dead who survives but not without sobering consequences. Living with the harsh realities of cerebral palsy, Ring faces impossible odds yet stumbles into an improbable life of inspiration and influence in the small, unassuming town of Liberty, Missouri, in the 1960s.
As a teenage boy, Ring finds himself tragically orphaned and being shuffled about to various homes. Along this journey, he faces secret, unspeakable atrocities that eventually plunge him into the depths of depression and attempted suicide. But amid the harsh troubles of life, he encounters another boy his age named David, the son of a local pastor. Their unlikely friendship begins on the rocks, but eventually develops into something extraordinary and unique that alters the trajectory of both of their lives--and the whole town of Liberty--forever.
About The Authors:
What an absolutely amazing story of overcoming challenges and changing the world for God's glory!
Before reading The Boy Born Dead, I had not heard of David Ring or his journey, so I was very interested in reading this book. I am so glad to have read it.
The Boy Born Dead was an absolutely remarkable story of David and how he overcame death, and many other difficulties in his life, so that God could use him in an amazing way with an amazing ministry. He went through more than most of us could ever fathom and yet his hope stood the ground and by God's grace he is where he is today.
This book and David's life and ministry are truly inspirational and anyone who picks up The Boy Born Dead will be changed forever after reading it.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
