Oh God, I'm Dying! tells the riveting true story of a high-profile Christian leader, Mark Smith, who has lived with severe physical pain for over 24 years yet succeeds as the president of a well-known Christian university. Mark Smith's story vividly illustrates the debilitating pain stemming from a near-fatal auto crash, and the initial despondency that ensued. Each chapter of Oh God, I'm Dying! brims with slice-of-life anecdotes that show his experiences, rather than merely describing them. The narrative identifies tried-and-true means of God's grace in his life, including: Heartfelt prayer Reliance on God's Word Depending on others in the body of Christ Using Christian songs to soothe the soul Utilizing medical intervention to assuage the pain. Oh God, I'm Dying! reveals how Mark's faith in Christ was tested, and ultimately deepened, due to the accident. Anyone who experiences chronic physical pain or illness, or other forms of affliction, discover the encouraging irony of how God redeems pain for the good of His people, and for His own glory. The result of the narrative will be renewed hope that God can use broken people, enhancing their usefulness not in spite of suffering, but because of it. Subsequent to the narrative are 10 "Faith Lessons", each rooted in Mark's story, which explain biblical insights and apply them to various spheres of suffering.
