Somewhere in Heaven: The Remarkable Love Story of Dana and Christopher Reeve by Christopher AndersenDana is my life force.
--Christopher Reeve A terrible thing happened. I wish it hadnt. But would I change who I married. . . . Never.
--Dana Reeve He was a hero in every sense of the word--the chiseled-from-granite star of four blockbuster Superman films and the romantic classic Somewhere in Time who, after being paralyzed in a freak horseback riding accident, became a symbol of hope for millions. Dana Reeve was no less heroic, standing steadfastly by her husbands side until his surprisingly sudden and unexpected death at age fifty-two. When Dana, a non-smoker, passed away from lung cancer just seventeen months after Chriss death, she left behind their thirteen-year-old son, Will, to be raised by friends and family. Dana was only forty-four years old. That fate could have dealt such a cruel hand to this golden couple seemed unfathomable. That they could endure it all with grace, courage, and humor defied belief. Yet for all the millions of words that have been written about their public causes and private struggles following Chriss accident, little is known about the lives they led as passionate young lovers. Now, in the manner of his poignant-yet-stirring bestsellers Jack and Jackie, Jackie After Jack, An Affair to Remember, The Day Diana Died, After Diana, and The Day John Died, No. l New York Times bestselling author Christopher Andersen draws on those who knew them best to examine in touching detail the Reeves unique partnership and the romance, faith, and fortitude that defined it. Sometimes heartbreaking, often uplifting, always compelling, Somewhere in Heaven is more than just a portrait of a marriage. It is the profoundly human story of two souls whose brief lives made a difference, a bittersweet saga of tragedy, triumph, and loss, and--above all else--a love story for the ages.
God Breathed - by Charles Lawson.
God-Breathed – 2 Timothy 3:16
Human beings speak with their mouths as their breath moves across their vocal cords, causing the cords to vibrate and produce sounds that are formed into letters and words by our lips, tongues, and teeth. This is a rather clear way of saying that Scripture is the very speech of God. Thus, Scripture has a unique character as the voice and words of the Lord. When we speak of Scripture as theopneustos , we are pointing to its divine inspiration. It is exactly what He intended us to have as the revelation of His will and how to please Him. That our Lord used a man to give us the book of Romans does not in any way make it less than the very speech of God. Following 2 Timothy and other passages, the Protestant Reformers affirmed verbal plenary inspiration.
Theopneustos was first used regarding wisdom in general and then later in reference to dreams. The sense was that the gods inspired wisdom and dreams for people to provide them with guidance or insight. First, Paul may be focusing on God as the source of Scripture. Second, Paul may be focusing on the connection with God as defining the nature of Scripture i. Third, Paul may be mentioning theopneustos in an effort to support the following list about the function of Scripture, which seems to be his primary agenda i. Of these options, determining the nature of Scripture from its source in God seems problematic because it reveals more about our ideas of God than the nature of Scripture.
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in Everything in the Scriptures is God's Word. All of it .

An essential doctrine of the Christian faith is the belief that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, or "God-breathed. All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness And we also thank God constantly for this, that when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men but as what it really is, the word of God, which is at work in you believers. We know the Bible is a compilation of 66 books and letters written by more than 40 authors over a period of approximately 1, years in three different languages. How, then, can we claim it is God-breathed?
