David and Jonathan are paramedics that deal with life and death and the consequences of human choice. On Rescue 12, they respond to the tragic drug overdose of a group of teenagers at a high school party. One girl survives to tell what she witnessed in her near-death experience. This encounter results in the spiritual awakening of David and forces Jonathan to confront his own Christian faith which he abandoned when he came out as gay to his father.
What happens when the ambulance arrives? What happens when a patient dies? Why do so many things seem outside our human control? Why does God allow for sin, death, and suffering? What’s the point of trying? These questions are answered, the emergency rescue calls are shared, and the lives of the two paramedics are forever changed by the spiritual warfare that they encounter.
What reviewers are saying:
David and Jonathan are two amazing people. When they respond to party their lives will change. David is totally surprised when his patient talks to him. The things that happen to him after treating her will have you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens next.
In Rescue 12 Responding, Faye Hamilton rips through the curtain that separates the spiritual world from our own. In the same vein as classic Frank Peretti, readers see not only the classic battle of good and evil, but the sliding slope of Greed, Anxiety, Pride, and Compromise personified.
