Answering the Call

Based on the author's experiences as a paramedic, these inspirational devotionals tap into the concerns and issues that trouble men and women serving as first responders.

Jesus said, "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends." The First Responders in your community do just that. They sacrifice comfort and safety to protect the lives of others, always waiting, and always wondering when they will find themselves answering the next call. This book was written for them, but it applies to anyone who searches for courage and hope, struggles with a difficult relationship, or suffers through pain or loss. Are you seeking a closer walk with God? Wondering what comes next? Answering the Call can help you find your way. It reveals the simple truth that Jesus Christ is Lord, and that to follow him is to find true meaning in life. Christ... the First Responder, is calling you now.

Answering the Call is a collection of inspirational stories based on the author's experiences as a street paramedic in Durham, North Carolina. Each story is written as a devotional with an insightful application that offers the reader a glimpse into God's Word. Use it for your daily devotional time, as a guide for small group study, or simply to share with other paramedics and other first responders.

Will you answer the call? "The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off -for all whom the Lord our God will call." - Acts 2:39.
