Book Description

More incredible stories of God's intervention.

Some things in life have no earthly explanation. It's just a God thing.

Miracles are not reserved for the characters in the Old and New Testaments; they happen to everyday people today, all around the world. Series creators Don Jacobson and K-LOVE Radio Network (14 million listeners) have joined together once again to produce a remarkable collection of modern-day miracles.
Stories include:
  • A man who was mysteriously pulled from a broken truck as it sailed over a ravine
  • A young boy who made a full recovery after being trapped under water for seven minutes
  • A young girl who defied all medical prognoses and survived after her vehicle was hit by a train
  • A mother, compelled to drive across town, who found her nine-year-old son stranded and alone at a busy intersection
Experiences like these are far more common than one may realize. From more than 1,000 occurrences, these 40 stories were chosen for their ability to amaze, encourage, and inspire all who live each day with both faith and doubt, victory and despair. Each day, the sunrise itself is a sign of God's miraculous hand, and these stories prove that it's only the beginning.

About the Author

 Don Jacobson's twenty-eight years in publishing included serving as the president and owner of Multnomah Publishers, where he oversaw the production of more than 1,000 titles and the sale of more than 100 million books. He sold Multnomah to Random House in 2006. Don founded D. C. Jacobson & Associates, an author management company, so he could continue working closely with authors. Don and his wife, Brenda, have four adult children.

My Review

 I really enjoyed Don Jacobson`s first book, It`s A God Thing so I knew what to expect and knew that I would love It`s A God Thing, Volume 2.

It`s a God Thing, Volume 2, is a compilation of stories of God`s intervention in the lives of everyday people. God`s intervention happens in many different ways. These ways are told in the uplifting stories. I found them to be particularly comforting. It is always comforting to have reaffirmation of the wonderful blessings that the love of God can bring.

A dear friend was recently pulled back from the brink of death in the ICU so I found Story 55, Back From Death by Alan Flynt, to be particularly reassuring:

I found out that during the time I was in the coma, several churches, pastors, friends, and prayer groups were praying for me. It was humbling to hear about all the people who put their lives on hold to pray for me if only for a few minutes. My story doesn’t contain a vision or grand revelation that came to me while I was in my coma, but I do know that during the worst times, when everyone thought I was dying, I knew that I was not. I could somehow feel the hospital room vibrate with the prayers that everyone was offering up for me. It was as though my room was floating on those prayers; the presence of God was right there with me. (Don Jacobson: K-LOVE. It’s a God Thing: When Miracles Happen to Everyday People: Volume 2 (Kindle Locations 2540-2546). Thomas Nelson.)

All of the stories and testimonies are similar to that. Very uplifting. I think you`ll love it! A great gift for someone who needs to be reminded that God is amazing!
