One if the questions most of us have asked is, “Will God answer my selfish prayer?” The answer you have probably received is that he will not.

Let me share some God Moments that exhibit God’s grace.
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.

That left Baker Books in the running—and they issued a contract for it.
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.
