The heartbreaking portrait of a large, rural southern family's attempt to grapple with their mother's desperate decision to make her newborn son into the daughter she will never have When the seventh child of the Peace family, named Perfect, turns eight, her mother Emma Jean tells her bewildered daughter, "You was born a boy. I made you a girl. But that ain't what you was supposed to be. So, from now on, you gon' be a boy. It'll be a little strange at first, but you'll get used to it, and this'll be over after while." From this point forward, his life becomes a bizarre kaleidoscope of events. Meanwhile, the Peace family is forced to question everything they thought they knew about gender, sexuality, unconditional love, and fulfillment.
"You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You." Isaiah 26:3 "Perfect Peace!" That is what we all want. That, too, is what Christ offers us in his gospel. Among his farewell words we find this bequest: "Peace I leave with you my peace I give unto you." After his return from the grave, he said to his disciples, three times repeating the same benediction, "Peace be unto you." Peace is thus part of the blessed evangel, and an essential element of the true and full Christian life. Christ desires us to have peace. If we do not have it we have missed part of the blessing of being a Christian, part of our inheritance as children of God. It is not a peculiar privilege which is only for a favored few; it is for everyone who believes in Christ and will accept it. In this blessed text you will find the path of the Peace of Christ.

It is a hands-on, quick way of learning how to navigate the Bible. In short, it is a two-week, one-a-day puzzle to increase readers’ faith.

“My Lord, I and all that I have are yours” (1 Kings 20:4). These are the words of absolute surrender with which every child of God ought to yield himself to his Father. We have heard it before, but we need to hear it very clearly – the condition of God’s blessing is absolute surrender of all into His hands. If our hearts are willing for that, there is no end to what God will do for us, and to the blessing God will bestow. God knows there are hundreds of hearts who have said it, and there are hundreds more who long to say it, but hardly dare to do so. And there are hearts who have said it, but who have yet miserably failed, and who feel themselves condemned because they did not find the secret of the power to live that life. Have you said it? In ABSOLUTE SURRENDER Andrew Murray unequivocally states that there is no other choice for us; we must either deny the self or Christ. If I am something, then God is not everything; but when I become nothing, then God can become all. He gives readers the message that our Father God in heaven answers the prayers which we have offered for blessing on ourselves and for blessing on those around us by this one demand: Are you willing to surrender yourself absolutely into His hands?
