Miracle Baby by Malachi Cannon is an inspirational story about facing hardship and living up to one’s calling. Born in Memphis, in the projects and in his mom's living room, his father absent, and with the help of a 911-operator, the child was burdened with autism and asthma. Apart from having to deal with his illnesses, young Christian had to face the reality that his father had abandoned him. This is an inspiring tale of healing, of how he beat the odds and found his calling. How did this boy do it? How did he come to be known as the miracle worker?
Filled with humor and interesting dialogues, Miracle Boy is an inspiring story, a tale with strong religious underpinnings and themes of personal development, marriage, religious calling, love, death, social justice, and even sex. The writing is clear and the narrative voice captivating. The conflict in this tale is well handled and readers will love to follow the family drama and the relationship dynamics that punctuate the narrative. There are insightful passages that I found inspiring like how Gina handles it when she learns about Chris letting himself be touched by another woman. His response is even funny, but filled with wisdom: “Baby, you’re all I need, all I’ll ever want, so don’t ever feel threatened by the competition, because if you do feel threatened, you have issues. You know why, because there is no competition in the world. You have no competition. No one done what you did, or will ever do what you have done.” Malachi Cannon’s story is an inspiring and enjoyable read with a strong appeal to fans of religious books.
