For those of you just tuning in, I'm writing a book about hope and healing at Faith Alive. I will be pitching the book idea (lengthy proposal and three chapters) to agents at two writing conferences this spring. That means I'm knee-deep in rewriting and editing, with the help of my writers' groups and some wise friends and family.

Dr. Philip R. Fischer, Professor of Pediatrics at the Mayo Clinic and personal friend of Dr. Chris, sent me the following endorsement.

“Erika Nossokoff captures the drama of sacrificial humanitarian work, reveals the hearts of humble servants, and inspires readers. Prescribing Hope is a page-turner that keeps readers engrossed in the story of Faith Alive. Read it with caution, though - the story of Faith Alive is likely to inspire you to get involved, to join the Faith Alive story yourself. Reading this book carries a cost - you might well find yourself praying and sending money from home or, more excitingly, joining the work in Nigeria.”

Thanks to Dr. Fischer for his ongoing support of Faith Alive!
