Where We See Tragedy, God Sees Possibility . . .
American epics of tragedy, intrigue, friendship, and faith will
entertain and challenge the soul like the narrative inspired by the
events in the real life of David Ring--a boy literally born dead who
survives with sobering consequences. Living with the harsh realities of
cerebral palsy, Ring faces impossible odds yet stumbles into an
improbable life of inspiration and influence in the small, unassuming
town of Liberty, Missouri, in the 1960s.
As a teenage boy, Ring
finds himself tragically orphaned and being shuffled about to various
homes. Along this journey, he faces secret, unspeakable atrocities that
eventually plunge him into the depths of depression and attempted
suicide. But amid the harsh troubles of life, he encounters another boy
his age named David, the son of a local pastor. Their unlikely
friendship begins on the rocks, but eventually develops into something
extraordinary and unique that alters the trajectory of both of their
lives--and the whole town of Liberty--forever.
