“The master ghostwriter steps from the shadows at last!” —Philip Yancey, best-selling Christian author
“Ever since I worked with Elizabeth Sherrill on the writing of God’s Smuggler, I’ve longed for her to tell her own story. She has done it at last—a modern Pilgrim’s Progress that I believe will become an inspirational classic.” —Brother Andrew
“As Elizabeth walked me through her life’s path, my heart was drawn closer to her Jesus and her heaven, which are mine too. I urge you to walk with one who is a master painter with words, into a reality more real than the earth itself.” —Loren Cunningham, Youth with a Mission Founder
