Strokes, brain surgery, epilepsy ... where is God in the middle of our suffering?
After surviving three strokes in his forties, Austen Hardwick began to think more deeply about life and faith. As he started to recover, he realised that running created space in which he could draw closer to God.
Weaving together personal testimony and biblical teaching, Austen encourages us to run towards God rather than away from him, so that we, too, can learn to live life in all its fullness with an ever-present God who is with us in our struggles.
Genuine, real and inspirational, Ever Present explores how running can be good for both the heart and the soul.
