Michael Shank Ministries This is a true story about John – a Christian man who is at the brink of suicide. Struggles, discouragement, and John’s improper expectations of what God was “supposed” to do for his life caused John to leave his faith and the Lord’s body, the church. John went back into every form of sin imaginable: alcoholism, drug abuse, adultery, and pornography – just as a dog returns to its vomit. John’s shame and guilt, his failure to provide for his family, and the loss of all hope that God could ever forgive him brings John to a terrifying moment… holding a shotgun to his chin. He starts to pull the trigger. Can God forgive this wretch of a man? Is it possible for John to be restored and to be able to return to Jesus Christ? This raw, gritty, true story grabs the reader from beginning to end. It is a story about the real life of a discouraged Christian, and it is a story of hope, love, and the redemption found through the grace of God!
