Stumbling on Open Ground - Love, God, Cancer, and Rock 'n' Roll

Ken Mansfield

More Information

Description:

Ken Mansfield writes as both a cancer and music industry survivor, vividly describing the many fragments a person tries to assemble when cancer or any other personal tragedy strikes. It's tough being a Christian when hardships strike. We're all human, and that means we're all susceptible to pain, doubt, exhaustion, anger, frustration, fear—the whole gamut of human emotions and experiences. And they all come in a swarm when you get cancer. Stumbling on Open Ground steps away from the pattern of other cancer books, Christian or secular, and attempts to tackle the question of how you can doubt a God that you do not doubt. It's about having trouble believing what is going on when you believe God knows what he is doing at all times. It is about questioning what is happening when you know where all the questions are answered. Author Ken Mansfield, former U.S. manager for the Beatles Apple Records and Dove and Grammy Award winner, takes readers into the experience in visceral, vulnerable passages that weave the ongoing spiritual struggle and physical pain with eventual triumph. Humbling and inspiring, his story forms a raw and ragged look at human suffering—one that validates our shared experiences, provokes a powerful sense of empathy, and encourages us to push into God even when it feels like God is pushing back.
