Nobody's Child - BOOK GIVEAWAY

A few months ago I read this book by Austin Boyd.  It was great! I just recieved another copy of the book from the author himself so thought it would be a great idea to do a giveaway.  I know many of you will enjoy reading this as much as I have.

Intervening With the Divine

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Even though it is fiction it gives real to life consequences of what happens when we, as humans, choose to mess with God's design.  Laura Ann is between a rock and a hard place. Her father is dying of cancer and needs some very expensive medication. The farm which has been in their family for years is in a financial bind due to her father's illness.  To generate the income she doesn't have, she sells her eggs to a reproduction clinic.  Although, she was brought up in church and taught to trust that God would always provide, she gets caught up in the advertisements for the quick cash she needs. Needless to say it wasn't all it was cut out to be. 
As the story plot gets deeper, a woman shows up carrying Laura's biological child. In a sad turn of events, Laura has to make some tough choices, and someone else wants her child badly enough to take some very drastic measures.
I don't want to give away the whole book, but it is certainly worth the read.  The challenges of faith verses bioethics is very interesting topic, considering the ideas present in today's society.  This book really gets a person to thinking about these things and how they affect God's design for our lives.  Is this part of His plan or are we taking matters into our own hands?? I received this book free from Zondervan Publishers for the purpose of my honest review.  And I can definitely say, I was very impressed with it. The author, Austin Boyd, serves his community through Crisis Pregnancy ministries. You can check out his website HERE.  I am looking forward to reading the next release from the Pandora Files.
You can purchase this book on Amazon or on Christian Book Distributors.

  2. I think we have to put our trust in God and hopefully we will be guided to make the right decisions.

  3. This sounds like it would be a great book. I think we should leave things the way they are and stop trying to play God by cloning and making new animals, etc.

  4. That's a difficult question. i just have to hold very tight to the belief that no matter what we choose to do or not do, in the end GOD is ultimately IN CONTROL. There have been a few instances in the last few years where medical science has proven to be much weaker than God, which strengthens my belief. That's not to say that we won't have to face the consequences of our choices.

  5. This sounds like a really great read. I agree with all the other comments though. We as a society feel that we are above God, but unfortunately no one or nothing will ever be above him for he is the Almighty creator.
