Inhaltsangabe zu „Iris: Trophy of Grace“ von Ron Owens

Iris Urrey was raised in a middle-class Christian home, but she was rebellious almost from the start. Running away at the age of thirteen, she became involved with drugs and prostitution, and at seventeen she was arrested for armed robbery. Once released from prison, she continued down a path of self-destruction. From numerous abortions to using heroin to managing a topless bar, Iris turned from God's calling again and again. But God didn't give up on Iris. He needed work done that only Iris could do. This is more than a tale of grace and redemption. God has used Iris's experiences to reach countless people, from top military personnel at NATO to German prostitutes. Along the way, well-meaning fellow believers have had trouble accepting some of the unconventional approaches of the Southern Baptist North American Mission Board's longest-serving Mission Service Corps volunteer. "You're nothing but a punk," she tells the ex-prisoner on the other end of the phone line-who later accepts Jesus and becomes her husband. "If you can tell me that you're retarded, you can memorize a scripture verse," she says to the woman who insists she is too mentally disabled to learn but finds new confidence when she is saved. Learn about Iris's remarkable walk with God as she continues to minister to people all over the world. But be ready: This book may compel you to take action yourself.
