Reporters around the world have told Dan Woolley's story of being trapped for three days after Haiti's devastating earthquake. They focused on how he used his iPhone to survive injuries to his head and leg. They showed pictures of the bloody journal where he wrote notes for his wife and sons. But the reporters missed the real story. While trying to survive physically, Woolley realized he was dying spiritually. A Christian since childhood, Woolley had allowed his faith and marriage to weaken in the busyness of life. His entrapment forced him to think about the only thing that mattered: Was he ready to die? In Baptism by Rubble, Woolley tells the story of how he learned to trust in a real God, a good God, and a God who cares for a broken world. Including color photographs, sidebars about surviving disaster, and the heartrending reflections of Woolley's wife, Baptism by Rubble transcends the survivor genre in every way. Readers will learn new truths from Woolley's themes of spiritual and marital renewal, his key insights into international relief, and his hard-won reminder to embrace every opportunity God gives.
