Salvation to Surrender is a journey that spans over thirty-years living as a "saved Christian", but at the same time struggling with his "self-will", and the on-going turmoil most Christians face on a daily basis.
Coming to know the Lord in his early twenties through his first divorce in 1977, Edward has now become a single man with the Lord for over twenty years. His desire of wanting to be married again and his overwhelming loneliness drives him to make a decision in finding his own wife, on his terms, and not the Lord’s will for his life.
This single selfish decision leads him down a road that ends up bringing him great agony and sorrow that creates a tidal wave of hurt and pain for many other people during his twelve year marriage to his second wife.
HIs marriage, to a young Filipina woman, produces two beautiful children but, at the same time because of his strong self-will, faces overwhelming trials of his health, a close-call in losing his two-month old son, the loss of his business, and financial disaster, until finally coming to absolute surrender to His Lord and finding the true rest in his life he had always desired in his heart.
“Salvation to Surrender is a must read for anyone who desires more intimacy with Jesus. Most stop short after their confession of faith in Jesus missing out on what it means to truly surrender all to Christ”.
