Pressed but Not Crushed
A True Life Story of Living with Faith and Locked-in Syndrome
Malcolm Down Publishing Ltd
Thirty-three years old, happily married to a lovely wife, a great job in dentistry, a strong Christian faith...life seemed just about perfect for Andrew Davies. But then, shockingly, Andy suffered a massive stroke, leaving him with "locked-in syndrome." Paralysed and only able to communicate by a series of blinks, Andy's life, and that of his family, was changed forever.
And what of his faith? A touching and rewarding read, this is the story of a brave man and a brave family, holding onto the promises of God and finding victory and purpose in the midst of tragedy – but a tragedy that has not robbed Andy of deep and real love, and of a life worth living, as he begins to study at theological college.
Andrew Davies is currently studying for a theology degree, an author, and active member of his local church. He lives with his wife Emma, in Bournville, Birmingham. England.
