A Passion for the Impossible
The Life of Lilias Trotter
by Miriam Huffman RocknessRead Sample Chapter!
You may not have heard of Lilias Trotter, but you know the hymn she inspired—"Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus." After you read A Passion for the Impossible, you'll never hear that song without remembering Lilias or what she did.
She left her life of privilege in England and her promising art career to settle in hostile Algeria. Dismissed because she was a woman, the Algerian men accused her of being a British spy.
But for the sake of the gospel, she never quit, no matter how many obstacles were in her path.
You'll marvel as you read about this woman's passion for the impossible, her brilliantly gifted life, and the miraculous ways the Lord used her to pierce the shadows of that Islamic landscape.
