Overview

The Great Depression. Pearl Harbor. Vietnam. Columbine. September 11.

When tragedy strikes, it etches into our memory with a powerful and indelible force. For those who have lived through such events, the impact can reach beyond memory to become a defining experience -- when a loving God brings His presence to the heart of a horrific moment. Brough to their knees in shock, with nowhere else to go, they turned to prayer. This book tells the true stories of: a Pearl Harbor survivor who later confronts one of his attackers: the Japanese Naval commander, a man changed by God and seeking forgiveness. a promise from Matthew 28:20 that sustains the hope and strength of a teen struck by bullets at Columbine High School. a child's racist epithet for the assassinated John F. Kennedy that becomes a lifelong lesson on the power of words. a visit to the Vietnam War Memorial that softens the buried memories of a hardened, hurting veteran, turning him toward hope and peace. God Allows U-Turns: American Moments offers a poignant reminder that, even in the worst circum-stances imaginable, God is always present in our lives...that, even in the darkest moments of our lives, He can turn us toward the light of His love and grace.
