Book launch/signing of 'God of the Miraculous'
Pastor Samuel McKibben in a lifetime of ministry has seen miracles of God through salvation, healing, deliverance, protection and provision. He has now captured these stories in a new book which is being launched this weekend.
Andrew Thomas who is Vice-president of the Apostolic Church aand Director of a Bible school in Italy writes:
"This is a lovely narrative of what God can do with one ordinary dedicated person, and it also gives the Biblical reasons why He chooses to do it."
Alister Matheson is the founder and pastor of Skye Bible Chruch and an author himself. He has known Samuel for many years. He comments:
"All too infrequently I read a new biography and think, wouldn't it be incredible to meet this person? Even more rarely, I have known someone very special and thought, wouldn't it be wonderful if others could know him too?
Having been privileged to know and learn from Samuel McKibben for nearly twenty years, I am delighted that much nagging has finally persuaded him to commit to print this glimpse into his remarkable spiritual heritage and experience of God.
Nearing his eightieth year, eye not dimmed nor vigour abated, you will typically find him serving Scottish churches or addressing Italian conferences, selflessly investing in another generation of local, regional and national church leaders. Men half his age scratch their heads incredulously as he displays an irrepressible energy, vision and faith that can only be described as 'Samuel McKibben'. This is a book that had to be written and must be read.
The book has arisen from the author's strong Biblical conviction that it is a God-given responsibility for each generation to witness to succeeding ones about the wonderful works of God. This is in accord with God's self-designation, that he is the God Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. Samuel McKibben's father was a Christian who witnessed to his own family, and this encouraged the resolve in the Author's heart to prove increasingly that the Gospel is not just a message to be preached, but a demonstration of God's power to be seen.
Samuel is to be available at a book-signing as follows:
Castle Street, Inverness
