“I highly recommend this to people who are lost and are looking for answers in their lives.”
“It’s a story of hope and redemption that has helped me look at life more positively.”
“The book renewed my faith in the risen Christ, and it made me reflect on my shortcomings in helping those in need.”
“Reading Michael’s Eyes gave me an entirely new perspective on the story of Jesus’ healing of the man born blind. Bob Foster’s imaginative and perceptive book gives the reader the opportunity to enter into the narrative. I was fascinated by the way the story is continued beyond the episode in the gospels. Contemplating the effects of Jesus’ healing provided both an intellectual challenge and a moving devotion.”
Michael was a blind beggar, spending his days roaming the streets, asking for money . . . until he was touched by a stranger who gave him the gift of sight. The news of the miracle spread like wildfire and reached the Pharisees, who were outraged and agitated to find out who the stranger was.
To Michael’s surprise, his unknown healer was later executed. He wondered about a lot of things. Why him? Were there others healed by the stranger? He embarked on a journey to find out. He met lepers and sinners and was astonished that they all had one thing in common: an encounter with an unknown rabbi called Jesus.
Michael’s Eyes is a retelling of a story from chapter nine of the Gospel of John. It is a story of God’s miraculous provision that asks why some believe while others do not.

I could not speak. They had found someone as profoundly handicapped as me. What was I supposed to do with this proposal? I could only weep in humiliation and fury.
I cannot reconcile the irreconcilable. All I know is that he changed life for me and Leah.
The story of Jonah and the city of Ninevah is a parable of judgment and justice. It is about the struggle of one man to bring judgment on a wicked society contrary to God's plan for mercy.
