Now My Eye Sees You

Front Cover
Hannibal Books, Nov 20, 2006 - Family & Relationships - 240 pages
Three degrees in theology, years in the pastorate, daily immersion in the Scriptures--they all taught Greg Ammons head knowledge of God. But not until he and his wife, Lisa, became late-in-life, first-time parents with the birth of their son, Camden, did Greg truly "see"--experience the matchless understanding of--the God he had worshiped and served for decades. After 18 years of barrenness ended with his son's miracle birth, Greg suddenly began to experience love from the role of a father personally. His book draws comparisons between his relationship with his son and that of his God in such areas as obedience and disobedience, spending time together, parental pain, teaching a child to walk, the sinful nature, and a father's unconditional love. Readers will emerge with a fresh understanding of God's boundless love for them and how His heart delights in intimate fellowship with His sons and daughters.
