Abbotsford author with ALS writes book about finding grace

Dave Jeffery takes readers inside his journey about praying for a miracle

Local writer Dave Jeffery, who lives with the terminal neurological disorder ALS, has recently published a book titled While we pray for Miracles, God gives us Grace.

“This book is for all of those believers who have prayed for a miracle but have not been healed or delivered,” Jeffery writes in the introduction.

He takes readers inside his journey of praying for a personal miracle of healing and finding grace instead.

“God is capable of answering our prayers for healing and working miracles, yet He does so only rarely,” Jeffery writes. “When God demonstrates a strong preference for grace over miracles, who are we to disagree?”

Chapters include “Ten testimonies of grace,” an analysis of relevant scripture passages, and an exploration of supernatural experiences.

The book is for sale at the House of James bookstore on Emerson Street in Abbotsford, and as an ebook on Amazon.ca and at Apple Books.

House of James owner Lando Klassen reviewed the book and said he appreciated the “realism that a lot of times miracles don’t happen, but God always gives us grace.”

He said the conclusion was very helpful, with its practical suggestions on how to celebrate grace. Klassen also noted the comments in the book from people across denominational lines.
