Publisher's Summary

This is the true story of Emily Colson, a single mother who has faced life's toughest obstacles. This is also the story of her 19-year-old autistic son, Max, a young man who struggles to speak, who some professionals deemed a waste of time - but a young man with a gift. Journey with Emily through this unabridged audio as she shows how Max unraveled the thinking of those who tried to teach him and help him, a lesson that the seemingly weak people can be more powerful than the strong, ncluding strong people like Max's own grandfather, Chuck Colson.

Critic Reviews

"In sharing her discovery of God's gift to Max seeing the world with a different but uncluttered view, Colson will bring hope and encouragement to those who have a child with autism. The book includes a prologue and epilogue by author - and Max's grandfather - Charles Colson." ( Christian Retailing)
