Trust me, you've never read a testimony like the one of Daniel Parkins in DAYDREAMS. This could be one of the most powerful examples of faith, since Job, that I have ever read. It's an understatement to say that my faith has been radically changed by it. I had the great privilege of reviewing this book that was previously published in 2006 and then I have had the GREAT joy of being able to republish (with additional chapters) the book through my publishing services, WRITESOURCE Publishing Services. Below is the synopsis and my review. ; ) Go download it! And spread the word! It's FREE today and tomorrow! ( Aug.17&18)
I've read a lot of testimonies of God's work in the lives of His people, I have my own, but I've never read such a powerful testimony as this. In fact, if you'd like to read a modern day version of the Biblical book of Job, this is it. Better yet, you'll find even greater faith in this man's life ... and I don't make that statement lightly.
Daniel Parkins has endured more in life than I believe any loving God should allow a person to. But as I read through the author's sufferings, I realized something . . . I saw God's purpose in it all . . . God's glory is displayed through this man's life probably more than anyone I've ever known. It's easy to praise God when you're "feeling" blessed, but what about when all you "feel" is excruciating pain and suffering that can't be expressed in words. I'm not sure I could hold onto my faith as Daniel Parkins has. But after reading his testimony in "DayDreams," his faith has transformed mine in greater ways than I can even say.
This is not a book for those who'd like to have God "sugar coated." This book is raw and real, just like God. Through it, you'll find yourself examining your own faith in more ways than you'll be able to count. You'll find yourself crying out, at the throne of God, "Lord, I do believe, help my unbelief."
I am astounded at the author's faith through more pain and suffering than I can even imagine. Yet, I find his pain has eternal gain. The power and glory of God cannot be denied in this man's life. I'm honestly not sure I've ever seen God's glory shine brighter than through the testimony of Daniel Parkins. You haven't seen God's glory until you've read this testimony. Truly, this is a must read for anyone who says that they have faith in God.
