An Unfinished Death by Dee Henderson
An Unfinished Deathby Dee Henderson is quite different from her other books. Although classed as a novel it reads more like a Bible study. I took my time reading and absorbing this book. The premise is that we as Christians should be seeing the same miracles in our lives that first century Christians did. We should be raising people from the dead and healing the sick through the powerful name of Jesus Christ. I am not sure on my part if it is a lack of faith or what. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever, Hebrews 13. I do think it is a book that should be read with a prayerful heart. So grab a pot of tea and plan to spend a bit of time absorbing this book.
Connie August, a Christian combat medic, one who had experienced healings and miracles on the battlefield similar to those in scripture, wasn’t looking to make waves back home now that she was retired from the service. She opened Connie’s Pizza and settled into her chosen community, wanting to be herself, content to lead a small group of paramedics, doctors, nurses and chaplains who were studying the scriptures and sharing their experiences from across the Chicago area. Ryan Cooper, CEO of a religious-affiliated private hospital, had seen too many of Chicago’s children die from gun violence, young mothers die from cancer, and random illness take both the young and old. He wanted the vibrancy of God’s healing to be a predictable experience again. A friend introduced them at a party. He wanted to understand what she’d experienced. She wanted him to give a chaplain friend a job when he retired from the service. They struck a deal that would change both their lives and soon begin to reverberate across Chicago. This is Ryan’s story, Connie’s, but mostly it’s God’s story, a God who is still amazing in his goodness.
