Saturday morning I walked up to my cash register and there was this guy standing at the counter writing in a stack of books. As a bookseller, I was mildly alarmed – until I found out he was Jerry Earl Johnston, and he was here to personally autograph every copy of his book, Rescued: A Prodigal’s Journey Home, in the store. I was then pleased to find out he lives just over the mountain in Brigham City. It was nice to meet you, Jerry!
By Jerry Earl Johnston
From beloved Deseret News columnist Jerry Johnston comes this intimate and inspirational true narrative of adversity and redemption. Allowing readers to glimpse behind the curtain of his private life, Jerry recounts a time of deep personal challenge when his heart hardened and his thoughts darkened, a time when, losing all bearings, he turned from his faith. Although he is a man of achievement, his story is rather a story of God’s achievement, how the Lord healed one man’s broken heart and restored it to hope, and how He will do the same for each of us. Jerry’s tender confession of his human struggles points us to Christ and creates a poignant tale of the only kind of success that really matters. Difficult to put down and impossible to forget, Rescued will inspire you to live better, more honestly, more joyfully, more contentedly, and to trust in the never-failing arm of the One who never gives up.
