Author: Joel Sonnenberg with Gregg Lewis
In this book you meet Joel, a young man who has been transformed from a lifeless lump of coal into
a diamond of rare beauty. At the age of two, Joel Sonnenberg was severely burned in an automobile
accident. This is a story of how a two-year-old boy grew to be a young man who has beaten what seems to be insurmountable odds. Forty-five surgeries, the physical and emotional pain of dealing with facial and bodily disfigurement, have given Joel a very unique perspective from which to see the world. Today, Joel considers his disability to be a special gift from God.
