Leslie SantamariaWhen Lightning Strikes Twice offers help for those facing multiple hardships. Catholic writer Marci Alborghetti, who battles melanoma, says subsequent strikes of adversity present unique challenges to and opportunities for faith. She recounts the stories of people who have experienced a variety of trials, including illness, death, abuse and poverty, and suggests spiritual transformation as a response to suffering.
Evangelical readers might disagree with the book’s discussion of being born again, which is presented as more of a lifelong process than an event and as something individuals elect to do. However, Alborghetti’s fine writing and the touching testimonies she presents will remind readers that they are not alone and will encourage them to see suffering as an opportunity to seek God and exercise faith.
