Does God exist? Does divine intervention occur in the affairs of mankind? Is man merely some sort of talking robots at the whims and caprices of nature? These are some of the questions and challenges that the author tried to answer in his adult life of over 60 years and finally, he found the answers.
God’s Hand at Work tells the true story of Joseph Amamoo, a man whose life is marked by challenges, physical abuse, suffering but culminating in victory and success through God’s miraculous hand that is at work in his life. All of his disappointments and failures indeed had a purpose. It appeared as if there was a rhyme and reason behind all the past frustrations and chain of ill luck that happened in his life and he knows that it is the hand of God that is at work in him.
Having gone through many years of a rather pleasant and fulfilling life in Britain, Europe, and Ghana, Amamoo had become a newspaper correspondent, a public relations advisor, an ambassador, a newspaper editor, a member of Parliament, government minister and a political prisoner. Representing his hometown as a member of Parliament, he was also appointed as the deputy minister of health. Among other things, as he had failed to become a doctor, it was rather thrilling and uplifting that he was in a position to deal with the concerns, issues, and problems of doctors and surgeons, both black and white.
God’s Hand at Work shares with readers the good and bad experiences of a man whose faith in God has helped him overcome all the challenges of life. These experiences as narrated truthfully in this work convinced him without any shadow of doubt whatsoever that the answers to the questions about the existence of God and divine intervention in his life is a resounding Yes. He also hopes and trusts that these stories, based on true life experiences, would strengthen all believers’ faith in God and also encourage agnostics and atheists that perhaps what they all term or call “coincidence” may have a meaning way beyond their understanding as mortals.
