God’s Hole-in-One and Other Miracles is a book about the Lord’s miraculous workings in the life of one ordinary Christian. The book begins with an unusual event which happened a few months after the author found faith in Jesus Christ as his personal Savior and Lord. He already had a series of miracles which led him to his knees in thanking God for his redemption. Therefore, he really didn’t need the unusual event to confirm his faith. However, the irrefutable event listed first in this book, it is hoped, should most assuredly be found compelling.
The rest of the book details a series of miracles in the author’s Christian life of forty-three years. They include healings, lifesavers, a calling, and a few wonderful discoveries. The original purpose of the book was to encourage Christians of all denominational, nondenominational, and independent churches to not be afraid to share their personal miracles with others. Many today are intimidated to keep those events to themselves. However, we live in an age where biblical doctrine has been watered down to such an extent, that many don’t really know what to believe any longer.
God’s Hole-in-One has also an evangelistic mission. Every person alive could have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ if they only knew the truth of who Jesus is. He had a mission to offer himself as the sacrificial lamb that would take away the sins of the world as well as its penalty. An explanation of Christ’s finished work on the cross and what it means is woven throughout the chapters. He has made an offer to all of us to live with Him forever, but few today seem to understand what that means. The miracles presented in this book should encourage all who read it to seriously consider the claims of Christ. As he said, “You will know the truth and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:32) His truth is so easy to see that even a child can understand it. He who has it will be “free indeed!” (John 8:36)
The journey of miracles of this ordinary Christian, many against very high odds, was the Lord’s doing, and it is finally time to share it with all who will listen.
