Holding Hands with Pascal is about the story of one family's journey to follow Christ with a special-needs child. The chapters intertwine memoir, biblical study, and theological reflection to reveal that weakness is a gift from God that is indispensable for our discipleship. Ranging from creation through daily life to the return of Jesus, a father tells of how the unusual and challenging life of his son, Pascal, has affected their entire family and where they have found morsels of grace in scripture and community to help sustain them. For families with special-needs children, groups seeking to grow as disciples, and churches seeking a way of faith-in-weakness, Holding Hands with Pascal offers insights and an inspiration for the way.
