And Always God… is the story of God’s faithfulness to an ordinary Christ- follower as she struggles to believe the God who promises hope in the light of an illness which predicts death. When author Mandy Hackland’s husband Nigel was stricken with prostate cancer, the time she spent by his side became a personal challenge. Though the physical pain was carried by Nigel, Hackland has this to say of her poignant narrative:

"The story I...tell was my story, my walk alongside Nigel as cancer grew inside him, but even more...(it was the) story of God’s faithfulness as we prayed and believed, struggled and doubted, cried and shouted in anger, surrendered and marvelled at God."

And Always God…is an amazing account of God’s tangible, audible presence in a time of pain. Readers will find how Hackland saw the elements of her faith through the pain and how this translated into the glory of God’s fulfilling the promises He made. The author and her husband’s expectations were not what God gave–but they were able to reach out to God and his word and eventually recognized how God came to fulfill his promises to them.

Mandy Hackland gives back to God by putting this book in print. At times she rises to poetic reflections, inspired by the extraordinary experience of spiritual inspiration. It is this that she relays for everyone to read, becoming God’s messenger, fulfilling what is tantamount to God’s request to spread the good news of her personal experience with faith. The author’s story is told thus with the prayer that others may know that, whatever their struggle, emotions, belief, or doubt, God loves them and is waiting with arms stretched wide in welcome…always.
