Epilogue: A Voice From the Grave
Luis Palau is an evangelist who has spoken to millions of people through his radio and television broadcasts all over the world. He is the author of several books on spirituality and Christian life. He is married and lives in Portland, Oregon.
"Drawing on actual conversations with callers to his counselling broadcasts, Mr. Palau brings his advice alive with the results he's seen in real situations. His general reliance on scripture rather than pop psychology is most refreshing."
Beth Impson, in World
"The style is simple and accessible."
Sue Clements-Jewery, in The Christian Herald
"In this helpful book Luis Palau looks at the most difficult questions that arise as a result of the human condition and, avoiding the pat answers of a merely logical response, is able to send a powerful message of hope to all those who are uncertain or confused by the paradoxes in life and faith. The book will reassure and comfort not only Christian readers but all those who suffer pain in their lives."
"A deeply personal approach to the questions that arise from the human condition and by avoiding clichéd answers he is able to send a very special message to those of us who are searching for the truth. Words of hope for anyone who is suffering from any kind of pain in their lives. ... Throughout his case studies, he points the way towards hope, peace and a future – and finally he steps back from individual tragedies to take in the larger picture. ... Luis's book of inspiration is so deeply meaningful it almost defies you to put it down."
"... a strong plea for the reader to receive the free gift of salvation. Palau writes in such a way that most readers would be compelled to read on. The book provides helpful points to consider and goals to follow. It is highly recommended for Christians (or those who are sympathetic) and recommended for others."
Wesley Aiken, Association of Christian Teachers
