Alumnus Richard Bouslough (M.Div. '86) suffered a stroke shortly after his graduation from the Seminary, at the relatively young age of 37. His book recounts his experiences and offers hope and information for friends and family members of stroke victims. The book is called Different Strokes...Everything You Never Wanted to Need to Know.
Stroke. More than 500,000 Americans will suffer its silent attack this year. The number has epidemic proportions, but add to it the newly estimated 11 million victims each year whose strokes go undetected and America shakes its collective head and wonders, am I next? One third of those detected will die in a short period of time, over 160,000 fatalities, making stroke the number three killer in the US behind only heart disease and cancer. It leaves another 200,000 victims with permanent disability.
Different Strokes... unwraps the fear of stroke, revealing possibilities for healing and hope - hope birthed by the insight of experience and supported by research collected from leading edge resources.
