He Heard Hannah - book review
I recently won a giveaway for a book that I had been reading about online for awhile. He Heard Hannah is "An amazing true story, where two lives are inexorably interwoven. Courtney Becker, a 911 dispatcher, took a routine call on November 19th, 2004. The call for help came from a man whose young daughter was in cardiac arrest. Courtney was destined to receive that call, and that little girl became part of his spiritual journey.
He Heard Hannah is an incredibly inspiring story of spiritual perseverance and life changing hope. God's purpose is undeniably seen through the miraculous, life changing events that are told in this book, and it illuminates the biblical truth, "And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose."
I was incredibly moved by this book. I don't often read non-fiction but I was intrigued by the true story behind this book. In the beginning it took me a little while to get into it, mostly because I did not have a lot of time to spend reading. It became my "waiting room" book and once I got going, I was pulled into the story of these parallel lives. I was amazed as I read on about how God clearly orchestrated their paths crossing and used a tragedy for His triumphant purpose. I would definitely recommend this book! Have the tissues handy, its a tear jerker!
