Walking Towards Hope:
Experiencing Grace in a Time of Brokenness
Dr. Paul M. Beckingham

“My guess is that you have never read anything like this narrative before. My amazement is that it exists at all. My plea is: Don’t miss it! I covet for you what it gave to me.”
—Rev. Dr. J.I. Packer, Regent College, Vancouver, BC

“I have rarely been so moved as when reading this book. Now that is some story. A story of faith in the dark, hope in a hopeless situation, vast courage and determination, and a character that has clearly been refined by the whole experience. I suspect that Paul’s greatest influence will prove not to have been in the heyday of his strengths and abilities, but in the impact his life continues to make on countless people after the accident. Read it and pass it on. It will change you.”
—Rev. Dr. Michael Green, Oxford University, England

“Paul Beckingham’s Walking Towards Hope is a compelling and rigorously honest account of unimaginable suffering forged detail-by-excruciating-detail in Kenya and Vancouver into a whole and holy life. The magnificence of the story itself is matched by the magnificence of the writing, language, unblemished by cliches, luminous as an icon.”
—Rev. Dr. Eugene H. Peterson,
Professor Emeritus of Spiritual Theology
Regent College, Vancouver, BC
Author of The Message:
The Bible in Contemporary Language

“This personal narrative of the author is remarkable indeed. For after all he has suffered mentally, emotionally, and relationally, he is still able to give us such a lucid, detailed, and deeply personal narrative of his journey of hope. He is like Lazarus, speaking to us again, as risen from the dead! His normalcy was shattered, and unconsciously he shatters our understanding of ‘being normal’ too. So if you want to remain cocooned in the complacency of your own egotistic ‘cabin’, then this is definitely not a book you should read; put it back quickly on the shelf! But if you are open to big questions of why we suffer, how we cope with tragedy, what is hope, and of how we re-live through a shattered life, then this will become a wonderful companion beside you, “Walking Towards Hope”.”
—Dr. James M. Houston, Regent College, Vancouver, BC
