If your life turns out to be better than you ever imagined, is it due to free will or God's will? According to E. P. Rogers, it's both. In his moving and fearlessly honest memoir, Blessings and Choices, Rogers revisits the highs and lows of his personal life and his thirty-nine-year career in information technology at Mutual of New York. He takes a hard look at the effects of his own decisions-the good and the bad-and at the same time illustrates how God's grace provided him with more than a few lucky breaks. After growing up with an alcoholic father, Rogers lives recklessly as a young man and enters into a marriage that ends in divorce. A series of near-death experiences sent him a message he can't ignore-God has spared his life repeatedly so that he can become the man he's meant to be. In his thirties, Rogers decides it's time to get serious about achieving his goals: success at work, and the stable family he's always dreamed of creating. What happens next is an extraordinary story of blessings that exceed his wildest dreams. This book is Rogers's testimony of gratitude for the love he thought he might never find, the privileges of fatherhood, the chance to climb the corporate ladder, and the simple fact of being alive to experience it all. It's a meditation on personal responsibility and a heartfelt celebration of faith.
