Survivor : A Story of Tragedy, Guilt, and Grace
Author: Duane C. Miller
A group of nature lovers and canoeing enthusiasts trekked into the Canadian wilderness with fun and adventure on their minds. But an enjoyable retreat turned into a nightmare when three young men drowned during a storm. Duane Miller was 17 years old on that expedition, and now more than 40 years later, he writes a dramatic, firsthand account of the accident and its aftermath. As the gripping tale unfolds, watch how God uses seemingly hopeless circumstances to bring about His own glory.
"The rolling waves of a storm-tossed lake forced Duane Miller to face mortality, battering his soul with grief and guilt. Yet in his mercy, God salvaged his life from its watery wreckage. Duane’s story of survival will speak to anyone who questions whether God can bring good from the sorrows of this earth."
"In Survivor, Duane Miller does a masterful job of helping his reader understand the sovereignty of God and shows how He carefully orchestrates the difficult seasons of our lives for His glory and our good."
“Survivor guides the reader through a riveting account of a real-life tragedy on a Canadian lake for this author and his camp brothers. Duane candidly shares how God lifted him up from guilt and despair and how we can likewise be delivered through full repentance in Christ. Survivor is a book you will want to give to friends and family that shows the profound impact a life sold out to God can have on others."
"So often we only see the tragedy and never see the good God who brings beauty from ashes and never once leaves us. Duane beautifully weaves his remarkable story with the thread of God’s grace through every aspect. Written with candor, detail, and humor this is a must read. I cried, I laughed, I was encouraged, and I fell just a little bit more in love with my Jesus. As the book says, 'With the Lord, there are not accidents, only incidents that draw us closer to Him.' This book does just that, draws you closer to Jesus."
