THE PORTRAIT MAKER: God’s Faithful Hand in Marriage, Cancer and Caregiving reviews the unlikely intersection at which the lives of two families converged—an intersection at which the life of a child was saved by the man who would later become that child’s father-in-law. The book moves through two youngsters’ ill-equipped marriage—recounting the time at which they were called to be Christ’s disciples and the life they then forged for themselves and their children. But much more than that, THE PORTRAIT MAKER covers the difficult race they ran after receiving what is certainly one of the most devastating medical diagnoses one can be given. In the final analysis, however, this is a story about God faithfully and lovingly working in and through two people who became one in Christ and who tried to faithfully follow the path He set before them.
