Between a Rock and a Grace Place: Divine Surprises in the Tight Spots of Life by Carol Kent

Carol Kent and her husband, Gene, are now living what some would call a heartbreaking life---their son, Jason, a young man who initially had so much promise, is now living out a life sentence for murder in a maximum security prison. All their appeals have been exhausted at both the state and federal levels---humanly speaking, they have run out of options. But despite their hopeless situation, Carol and her husband live a life full of grace. Kent reveals how lifes problems become fruitful affliction where we discover the very best divine surprises, including peace, compassion, freedom, and adventure. Through the Kents remarkable ongoing journey, Jasons riveting letters from behind bars, and true grace place stories from the lives of others, Between a Rock and a Grace Place reveals that when seemingly insurmountable challenges crash into our lives, we can be transformed as we discover God at work in ways we never imagined. With vulnerable openness, irrepressible hope, restored joy, and a sense of humor, Carol Kent helps readers to find Gods grace places in the middle of their worst moments. Carol Kent and her husband, Gene, are now living what some would call a hopeless place in life, as their son, Jason--with a degree from the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, a young man who initially had so much promise-- is now living out a sentence of life without the possibility of parole in a maximum security prison. He has a toe-tag sentence. In prison vernacular that means he will never leave a Florida state penitentiary until he is dead on a slab with a tag on his toe. All their appeals have been exhausted at both the state and federal levels. Humanly speaking, they have run out of options. They are in the middle of a rock and a hard place---but not really. With Kents story as the backdrop, punctuated by true vignettes from the lives of others she has encountered, and her son Jasons letters from prison lacing each chapter with haunting transparency yet bright hope in the midst of iron bars and concrete, every chapter takes readers by surprise transforming seemingly impossible obstacles into towers of celebration, delight, and victory. Kent reveals how lifes obstacles become the very foundations of divine surprises such as faith, compassion, contentment, thanksgiving, favor, freedom, joy, and even adventure. Readers are moved from tears to goose bumps to astonishment, joy, and even laughter. Kent writes: Since we have spoken publicly about our journey, thousands of people have written to us about their personal roadblocks in life. Media interviews have included countless inquiries about how we have been able to stave off depression, discouragement, and hopelessness. Were not sure when it happened, but on this journey we have discovered the grace place that can only be experienced when you embrace your Rock (God himself) and allow yourself to find safety, comfort, opportunity, and joy in the most unexpected circumstances. This is a book that addresses the felt needs of people who hurt, as it instills a surprisingly new way of thinking, leaving readers irresistibly drawn to see Gods astonishing grace places in the middle of their roadblocks.
