Often called “the next Billy Graham,” Luis Palau is among the best-known American evangelists in the world today. His sermons on spirituality and the Christian life, as well as his calls for international and racial harmony, have been heard by hundreds of millions of people at public gatherings and on radio and television in more than ninety-five countries. It’s a God Thing brings together stories Palau has gathered on his travels. These stories, often beginning with the words “You won’t believe what happened to me,” unfold to reveal an unusual and frequently miraculous series of events that transformed the life of the storyteller.
Recent polls indicate that the vast majority of Americans–around 90 percent–say they believe in God. Yet even the most consistent churchgoers sometimes wonder why miracles–the recovery of a terminally ill child, the unexpected, much-needed check in the mail–happen to other people. Through its simple, true-life stories, It’s a God Thing illustrates the small, often mysterious ways in which God orchestrates events to create something positive amid the confusion and pain of daily life and shows that, even when his intentions are not immediately clear, God gives each individual what he or she needs most.
