Overview

At 5:41 P.M. on May 22, 2011, an EF5 tornado hit Joplin, Missouri. It was a huge twister that destroyed miles of properties down its path, leaving houses, businesses, crops, and everything it hit devastated, in rubble. Then as if it had been forever, the forty-five-second catastrophe left 161 deaths, injuries and disbelief, and stories of survival . . . stories of faith.

Scott Hettinger’s interviews with many survivors provides a real picture of what that afternoon was like, in multiple points of view. Some were in their homes doing chores, some attending graduation, some shopping, while others stayed with their families for barbecue and such. But there were dark clouds over Joplin, strong winds, purple lightning . . . and everything was okay. Then the tornado sirens went off.

5/22: Stories of Survival, Stories of Faith provides powerful examples of how powerful God's hands are in times of need.
