Hana’s life is on pause. She’s between homes, between jobs, between a rock and a hard place. She and Isaac, her son with special needs, are running from a painful past, and she’s looking to the future with not much hope. And then she meets Pastor Matthew Schofield.

Matt loves his books, his writing, and his small Oklahoma congregation. His life is studious and predictable, just the way he likes it. When he meets Hana and Isaac, who are anything but predictable, his world is forever changed. As Matt forms a surprising bond with Isaac, Hana is challenged to view God and His promises in a whole new light.

Thoughtful and eloquent, Loving Isaac is a story of compassion and trust that will renew your faith in the power of God to work change in both big and small ways.
