There is a time for everything. Things that miss their appointed hour are at risk, and they place us at risk. They catch us as we are, not as we wish to be. They show us what we do not want to see.
Before Their Time tells the stories of six children born too soon--true stories of women, men and tiny children exploring the meaning of life, death and faith. Written by Daniel Taylor from extensive interviews, each story arises out of the practice of Dr. Ronald Hoekstra at Children's Hospital in Minneapolis, Minnesota. With Taylor, you will enter the neonatal intensive care unit, a quietly crowded place of babies, doctors, nurses, parents and machines. It is place of drama, heartache, waiting and joy. And it is a place where God is found.
The questions raised by the stories of these smallest of infants are as large as life itself. What makes a life worth living? How much should we do--or spend--to preserve it? What is the balance between medicine and faith? As you explore Before Their Time you will wrestle with your own answers to these questions. And you'll find these miraculous lives can transform your own--just as they transformed the lives of their families and caregivers.
