Learn More About The Book
David and Jonathan are paramedics that deal with life and death and the consequences of human choice. On Rescue 12, they respond to the tragic drug overdose of a group of teenagers at a high school party. One girl survives to tell what she witnessed in her near-death experience. This encounter results in the spiritual awakening of David and forces Jonathan to confront his own Christian faith which he abandoned when he came out as gay to his father.
What happens when the ambulance arrives? What happens when a patient dies? Why do so many things seem outside our human control? Why does God allow for sin, death and suffering? What’s the point of trying? These questions are answered, the emergency rescue calls are shared and the lives of the two paramedics are forever changed by the spiritual warfare that they encounter.

In Rescue 12 Responding, Faye Hamilton rips through the curtain that separates the spiritual world from our own. In the same vein as classic Frank Peretti, readers see not only the classic battle of good and evil, but the sliding slope of Greed, Anxiety, Pride, and Compromise personified. As we ride along with EMTs David and Jonathan, the story takes us to places where physical trauma confronts spiritual trauma, blending faith and healing in body and spirit. While I enjoyed the fast-pace of the driving plot, I was most drawn by Hamilton's deft portrayal of a character dealing with his sexual orientation. It is truly a thoughtful, dignified characterization.
I loved it and couldn't put it down.
I liked getting to see how the angels and demons might be affecting us each day and the importance of prayer in our lives. Since the story is centered around an ambulance crew, there is always non-stop action happening that keeps you hooked to find out what's happening next.
