At Heaven’s Edge: True Stories of Faith and Rescue
Veteran EMT Andrea Jo Rodgers has helped hundreds of people in their most vulnerable moments.
Some of the victims faced their mortality head-on and cried out to God for help. Many experienced fleeting but life-changing connections with their first responders. Often these crises became unexpected sources of inspiration.
Now Rodgers shares brief, real-life stories of heroic courage in the face of fear. In times of intense suffering, she has repeatedly witnessed signs of God’s quiet intervention and healing presence.
- A man is resuscitated after Rodgers was able to repair a defibrillator–with her teeth!
- Several bystanders help rescue a young girl who is accidentally buried alive in sand.
- Rodgers also experienced some lighthearted moments, including the time she arrived at the scene of a crime only to find herself in the middle of a mystery dinner theater.
Experience the miracles, the life-and-death drama as you look at life from heaven’s edge.

“It would be unfair to spoil any of the surprises in At Heaven’s Edge: True Stories of Faith and Rescue by… Andrea Jo Rodgers. But sometimes, a story is just so good, so meaningful, so true and uplifting, it’s hard not to want to share. In Rodgers’ 216-page work… there are many stories like that. But several stand out among these individual tales which offer insight into her devotion to the art of lifesaving and the role faith plays in it.” – The Monitor
“…I recommend this book as an appropriate recounting of the courageous acts of mercy demonstrated by first responders, law enforcement officials, and medical personnel. During a time in our society when they are sometimes portrayed as less than heroes, Rodgers’ many stories reestablish the faith we need in those who place their lives on the line every day to keep us healthy and safe.” – S.
