“This is a story of God’s work in the life of a young man from the Black Country, graciously saved and led to full time Christian ministry, although not by the direct route he had expected. Through Deacon Ian’s story, both the riches of God’s glorious treasure and the fragility of the clay jar in which it is contained are vividly described. Ian’s biblical reflection on his ongoing journey into and out of depression, perplexingly and frustratingly recurring throughout his life and ministry, will be a help and a encouragement to anyone who has experienced the bewilderment of Godly ambitions impeded by human limitations.
The pathway to understanding that surpassing power belongs to God and not to us is a painful one, but this account from a fellow traveller makes valuable reading along the way.”
