Revenge Redeemed: A True Story of God's Grace by Bob Stewart, Teresa Medeiros

Does God's command to love your enemy include forgiving the drunk driver who killed your only child?

It's Christmas Eve, but Frank and Elizabeth Morris have no reason to celebrate. Joy, peace on earth, and good will toward men have been replaced by heartbreak, hatred, and bitterness. Their beloved only child, eighteen-year-old Ted, has just died from injuries sustained in a horrific automobile accident. Days later, they would learn that their son had been killed at the hands of a drunk driver.

The Morrises' strong Christian faith is shaken to its foundations as grief chokes every bit of hope and joy from their lives. They demand the death penalty for their son's killer, a young alcoholic named Tommy Pigage. When the charges are reduced from murder to manslaughter, they are outraged by the injustice of it all--and anguished by God's seeming indifference to their suffering.

Tormented by their inability to "love their enemy", they continue to stumble through dark days and darker nights. It isn't until Elizabeth opens up her car door--and her heart--to the troubled young man who killed her son that the light of God's transforming love begins to seep through the cracks of their broken lives.

Includes Study Guide with Discussion Questions for Classes, Book Clubs, and Book Groups by New York Times bestselling author Teresa Medeiros

"One of the most moving true life stories I've ever read. A genuine life-changer. Should be required reading for every teen who drives so they can witness firsthand the true cost of drunk driving."--Teresa Medeiros, New York Times bestselling author
