About the Author
Matthew Ward was a member, with his sisters Annie Herring and Nellie Ward, of the Second Chapter of Acts, one of contemporary Christian music’s first super groups. In recent years he has ministered through live concerts at churches and events across the country. His most recent CDs are “My Redeemer” and “Even Now.” Matthew and his family live in the Rocky Mountains.
In January of 1994, Matthew Ward was diagnosed with three types of cancer. That dreaded word had become all too familiar to him many years before: By age twelve, Matthew had lost his mother to a brain tumor and his father to leukemia. For two frightening and uncertain years, Matthew battled the disease and ultimately experienced full remission. Now considered “cancer free,” Matthew is convinced that God used his ordeal to prepare him for a new ministry: using his voice to melt walls of disbelief, discouragement, bitterness, and doubt within the body of Christ.
