Overview

Theo Cross: A Life Lived under Grace is the touching story of a pastor's life as he grows in God's grace over the course of his stay in a hospital where he is being treated for cancer. The story recounts the central characters awakening to God's call to the pastoral ministry, the desire to deepen in his understanding of God, faith, hope, and a host of associated issues with following Christ as a disciple. The story discloses the character's growth in faith, hope, and love. Through a series of flashbacks and encounters with friends, family members, and other patients in a hospital, the reader experiences the spiritual journey of a man who, even though he faces death, continues to learn new and vital ways into rich and rewarding experiences of God's grace, mercy, and goodness.
