“That Your Faith May Not Fail is a book about many things: a son who loved the Lord and was a blessing to be around before and after his tragic accident, the precious sanctity of life, the sustained grace of God, the hope of heaven, the prayers of a myriad of saints, medical and lay people with merciful hearts, Providential witnessing opportunities, grief, and perseverance. But most of all, this book is about a high view of God is sovereignty, His love, and His kindness throughout devastating circumstances. Selah has written a captivating book that I could hardly put down. The story is gripping and God-honoring.”
—Martha Peace, Biblical Counselor and author of The Excellent Wife
“Since we first met their older two sons when they came to Union, the Helms became dear friends. This moving account of how they have and are walking through the ordeal of Peter’s suffering is truly powerful. . . . I found myself yearning to know God more richly, to trust Him more fully, to love my family more deeply, and to immerse myself more completely into God’s Word. I urge you to read this book and pass it on to others . . . . [T]his family has found God faithful as they have been held fast by the great gospel truths.”
—Ray Van Neste, Ph.D, Director of the R.C. Ryan Center for Biblical Studies and Professor of Biblical Studies, Union University

“I am abundantly grateful to the LORD for the inspiring privilege to read That Your Faith May Not Fail: Peter’s Sermon. It has caused me yet again to be thankful for the depth of our belief system and the Holy Spirit’s empowerment to help us live out what we say we believe.
In the midst of a culture that speaks of “quality of life” issues and devalues suffering, the Helms’ God-given testimony speaks like a megaphone. In the midst of skepticism about the value of the Church he has been used by our LORD to show the beauty of the body of Christ in action. In the midst of the degradation of the American family, He has allowed the Helms family to model it’s tremendous depth and beauty. Please feed your soul and reinforce your theology by reading this book.”
