May 2018: On Heaven’s Doorstep: God’s help in Times of Crisis-True Stories from a First Responder, the sequel to At Heaven’s Edge, has been released by Harvest House Publishers.
Medical emergencies are among life’s most unexpected and terrifying realities. But isn’t it reassuring in times of extreme crisis, you can find hope and comfort in the hands of a loving God?
Encounter heart-stopping drama in these real-life stories of everyday people like you who found themselves on heaven’s doorstep—fully dependent on the skilled and courageous efforts of first responders and on the mercy of God.
As you read these firsthand accounts of perilous situations with uncertain outcomes, you will experience a full spectrum of emotions, from tender heartache to tremendous joy. Through it all, you will witness God’s amazing love and care for His children, both for those who are brought back from the edge and for those He chooses to call into eternal fellowship with Him.
Be inspired as you go on call with veteran EMT Andrea Jo Rodgers and other brave professionals dedicated to helping when humanity is at its most frail.
“In her sequel On Heaven’s Doorstep, Andrea Jo Rodgers relates more of the real-life stories she shared in At Heaven’s Edge and invites us to an intimate relationship with the people she’s met through over 7,000 first aid and fire calls…
…It’s the narrative of each rescue that separates the book from an ambulance chaser’s dream. She includes dialogs between family members and provides the setting in which the emergencies begin. To do that she interviews family members later, reviews newspaper articles if there are any, and often follows up with people to see how they are doing…
…Rodger’s purpose is to remind us that we are not always in control. For Christians, it is a reminder of God’s presence in our lives, but this book is for everyone despite religious affiliation. Even those who are agnostic or atheist can understand that when we need help, we can be grateful for those trained to help us.” — S. Leigh Hall, CatholicReads.com
