First let me express my gratefulness to God for letting me represent the authors of the following three books. All three represent God at work in the lives of the writers, each in God’s distinctive way of helping them overcome huge disadvantages. These books represent apologetics, help for parents whose children are afflicted by autism, and God’s miraculous way of intervening in life’s desperate situations told in story form.

“What makes you think people want to read your poems?” Michael stared at me like the Pope.
My mouth dropped. I couldn’t decide if I was hurt or ticked off. Michael held a position of spiritual authority over me. He raised his eyebrows, demanding an answer.

When Christine Hoover’s first book, The Church Planting Wife, was released by Moody Publishing, editors at two other large publishers took notice. Suddenly she was an author in demand because of her skill as a writer on an important topic.

By Dr. Norman L. Geisler and Jason Jimenez
Dr. Geisler, the author of more than 90 books and currently Distinguished Professor of Apologetics and Theology at Veritas Evangelical Seminary, and Jason Jimenez, pastor of families for more than 15 years, have cooperated on a book providing an extraordinary resource for laypersons, teen and adult class leaders, and pastors.
The overall title for this series speaks to one of my purposes—to help writers recognize the God Moments in their life. Yet many of the God Moments in my life as a full-time literary agent may not have happened if we had not recognized family-related God Moments.
