A Fight To Forgive: How to Turn Their Wrongs and Your Hurts Into God's Greater Purposes by Kevin J Ramsby (2016)


Paperback in Very Good (VG) condition. Please see our guide to book conditions for more details.

In the summer of 2009, while pastoring in the inner-city at Revival Tabernacle Church, Kevin was home alone when awakened by the sound of breaking glass and confronted by a man who had broken into his home. In the vicious fight that ensued, Kevin was stabbed 37 times and left for dead. His survival, God’s redeeming power, and Kevin’s journey to forgive his attacker is nothing short of miraculous. Kevin’s story has been shared with millions through Roma Downey’s “Answered Prayers” (The TLC Channel), “I Survived” (The Biography Channel), “The 700 Club,” and national and international newspapers, including numerous pieces written by New York Times best-selling author Mitch Albom of the Detroit Free Press. Kevin has shared his message in pulpits such as at Brooklyn Tabernacle Church (Pastor Jim Cymbala), National Community Church (Pastor Mark Batterson), and Woodside Bible Church (Pastor Doug Schmidt). The miracle of God’s rescuing and restoring power in a completely broken life continues today. After 18 years pastoring in the inner city of Detroit, Kevin stepped away to devote a season to write A Fight To Forgive about what God has taught him about forgiveness and more in the aftermath. A Fight to Forgive not only shares Kevin’s experiences, it also provides tools for others struggling to forgive “as Christ forgave.” With the book, Kevin hopes to help those who’ve been hurt transform those wrongs to be used for God’s greater purposes. Kevin continues to pray for his attacker, who is serving out a lengthy sentence; additionally, through God’s healing power, Kevin communicates with him. Kevin will be sharing his message in churches, youth groups, men’s and marriage ministries, along with MLB chapels while using the proceeds from the book to go towards supporting his family and planting the first known church in nearly 20 years in a Northeast Detroit neighborhood in 2017. "Thirty-seven stabs. A scar on his face. The man who had to hold his insides from the outside clearly has a heart too big for the average chest. And what he has surrendered may be one of the greatest gifts you’ll hear about." Mitch Albom Detroit Free Press "Kevin puts a modern-day face to God's power and sovereignty that needs to be shared with the Church." Mark Batterson Pastor, National Community Church
