Following God’s call to cross cultural mission, Ellis’ experience from riots, political upheaval, physical hardship, and burn out, to caring for his wife, Adèle, through her Alzheimer’s, he would have been unable to hold fast without a robust biblical understanding of God’s providence and sovereignty. With feeling and honesty Ellis weaves anecdote with biblical meditation, allowing scripture (especially the pivotal Psalm 2) to form the lens through which the world, in all its frightening chaos, is viewed. A personal, pastoral, faith building read, it offers scriptural reflection not trite answers – robust biblical wisdom for guidance, encouragement and challenge for Christians of all ages and stages.

For those lost in the misty flats of shifting values and shaking foundations, this book brings hope. The anxieties, warmth, humour, and trust in the Lord that come through, have not been put together to enhance the readability of the book. They are the authentic David, as he is and as I have known him many years.

David Pickard, Former OMF General Director

David and Adele Ellis became part of my life towards the end of Adele’s – when they became part of St Peter’s Free Church in Dundee.  This book reflects exactly what I knew of both of them – wise, Godly, interesting , faithful, biblical and deep. I love it. This is not your run of the mill missionary book: it’s full of bible teaching, missionary work, practical experience devotional and so much more.  From the loss of a niece in the Dunblane shooting to the loss of his wife through dementia David tells a painful, wonderful, beautiful story.  The accounts of life in Indonesia and the testimony of their son John at his mother’s funeral are worth the price of the book alone.  Personally I will never forget that testimony or that day.  This book will help others to share in it – and to learn so much more!
