From the stormy Atlantic seas to the raging fury of the British parliament, Kurt Bruner and Jim Ware explore the deep, grace-filled truths in this real-life adventure. Along the way, the authors reveal God's grace in our everyday struggles and show how He uses even the smallest of events and weakest of individuals to carry out his ultimate plan in this world.
