“Stand Alone”: a heartwarming book of a miracle that God has given to a young man who has suffered from a traumatic brain injury. “Stand Alone” is the creation of published author, Matthew Duke Rodgers, a survivor of this injury and the one who has experienced the God-given miracle in his book.

Matthew shares, “Mom said the waiting was hard. She remembers Dr. Webb showing up after several hours wishing to speak to my parents. Dr. Webb took them to a private room where they could talk. Mom remembers a real sinking feeling and was prepared for Dr. Webb to say I was dead. Mom had already told herself and the other waiting family members that I was in the Lord’s hands and His alone. She reminded them that I had already made a personal choice for Jesus Christ to be my Lord and Savior.

"The doctor said I was still alive, but he didn’t know how. He said I shouldn’t be and he compared the impact I hit the ground to that of someone diving out of an eight-story building. He also said he didn’t think they could keep me alive until morning because he didn’t want anyone to get their hopes up. Aunt Melissa’s sister, Pam, said, ‘I rebuke that! We claim life for Duke in the name of Jesus.’ The doctor gave her a funny look, said he would report from time to time, and left.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Matthew Duke Rodgers’s new book covers the time of his injury to the struggles he has faced in the University of Missouri, getting through every doubt of those who have questioned if he is still a capable man, knowing that he is a survivor of a traumatic brain injury.

The accident that the author encountered has been a life-changing event that has made him realize that God does not leave his people. It is a story full of hope, even if he has encountered institutions that do not protect and assist survivors like him.
