Présentation de l'éditeur

When Ben Underwood became blind at the age of two, anyone would have thought he faced a life full of hardship and uphill challenges—a world full of things he’d never be able to see and activities he’d never be able to enjoy. But as far as his mom, Aquanetta Gordon, was concerned, nothing was impossible for Ben . . . and so he accomplished the incredible. Known as “the boy who could see with sound,” Ben mastered human echolocation—the ability to detect the size, shape and location of objects through the reflection of sound waves. By clicking his tongue and “seeing” the waves, Ben could ride his bike, shoot baskets, identify objects, and even play video games. Some called it a miracle, but to Ben and Aqua, the real miracles were the otherworldly experiences God gave Ben—physical and spiritual—that others couldn’t explain. Echoes of an Angel is the remarkable true story of how a child who seemed destined for darkness brought light to the world. It’s the story of a single mom who encouraged her son to push beyond his limits, even as her heart clenched with protective love and fear. And it’s the story of a family’s unshakable faith . . . in God and each other.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Review of "Echoes of an Angel" 22 avril 2014
Par Melissa - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Several years ago, a friend told me the story of a young boy who had lost both eyes, but was able to lead an amazing life due to the fact that he had developed the ability to “see” through echolocation. I was amazed, and the story has never left me.

I was so surprised when I had the opportunity to read and review Echoes of an Angel, the true story of Benjamin Underwood, the young man my friend had told me about those years ago! To say I was thrilled to know more about the story behind the boy with amazing echolocation skills would be an understatement.

From the very first page of Echoes of an Angel, I was touched. The story that Ben’s mother, Aquanetta Gordon, told was at once full of joy and heartbreak.

Born the fourth child of an unwed mother in California, Ben grew up in government housing on welfare, in a home filled with struggles, sadness, and great love.

When Ben was diagnosed with bilateral retinoblastoma, a rapidly developing cancer, at the age of two, his life was changed forever. After chemotherapy and enucleation of both eyes, Ben began “clicking”. Much to his family’s surprise, Ben had the ability to use echolocation to do what sighted children do: run, climb trees, ride bikes, skateboard, and even surf!

I was deeply touched by Echoes of an Angel, and the powerful story it told, of how God never leaves us, but is faithful, working in every detail of our lives, no matter how dark or painful the moment we are in. However, I must admit that I was uncomfortable with a recurring dream described in the book that referenced a conversation with Ben following his death. We as Christians must be very careful with what we believe concerning dreams, visions, and communication with the dead, and we see that God does not approve of communication with the dead (1 Samuel 28:15-19; 1 Chronicles 10:13-14; Luke 16:27-31).

Overall, I found Echoes of an Angel to be a beautiful and inspiring story of God’s faithfulness in one boy’s life, and would give it a “B”.

At the age of two, Ben Underwood lost both of his eyes to a rare disease called bilateral retinoblastoma. Determined for him to live just like any other young man, and realizing that he has enough strikes against him as it is, his mother helps him to grow up as a normal child. Except that his way of dealing with blindness is anything but normal. Using a clicking sound to identify objects and the sizes of room, Ben is able to do, at times, more than people who have sight accomplish. By the time he hits his mid teens, Ben is motivating people around the world with his abilities.

I thought this was a powerful story of what people can do when God (and family) is on their side. The story of Ben Underwood is incredible!

Echoes of an Angel is an amazing true story of the life of Ben Underwood, who lost both eyes at the young age of two. Ben's family was poor, and his mother struggled to survive with her children. However, Ben's mother Aquanetta (who is the author along with Chris Macias) was strong, and she was determined that her son would have as normal of a life as possible. Through her determination and strong faith in God, as well as some wonderful friends, family, and teachers, Ben achieved more than anyone thought possible.

Ben never used a cane-but he did ride a scooter, play video games, and did pretty much everything other children did. Ben used echolocation-'seeing' through the reflection of sound waves. He had a strong faith, and amazed everyone who heard of him. He appeared on numerous shows, including Oprah. Though unfortunately his life was cut short by cancer, he left quite a mark on this world.

Echoes of an Angel was a wonderful reminder of putting our faith in God and watching what He can do! The book contains pictures and a Discussion Guide. I received a copy of the book free from Tyndale House in exchange for my review.

Echoes of an Angel is the story of Ben Underwood, a young man who lost his eyesight due to retinal cancer and then learned to find his way around in the world using human echolocation. (Echolocation is sending out sound (clicking) and listening to the echo to find objects) Due to echolocation, Ben could ride a bike, roller blade, and get himself around without the aid of a cane, among many other amazing feats. He became world famous and made appearances on The Oprah Winfrey Show, the Today Show, and was invited to speak around the world.

Ben was also remarkable for his positive attitude and faith in Christ.

Just as remarkable in my opinion is story of his mother, Aquanetta Gordon and her journey in raising her "handicapped" son.

The Lord spoke three things to Aquanetta on the morning three-year-old Ben underwent surgery to have his second eye removed due to retinal cancer, rendering him completely blind.

Ben will live and not die
Ben will see again
And this isn't for you

Aquanetta's story demonstrates how these words played out in her life. Ben did live through the surgery. Despite total, irreversible blindness, the degree to which he was able to see, both spiritually and physically, was amazing. And she felt that the gift that was Ben was not for her benefit, but to all of those who knew him, and to the glory of God.

I was interested in this book because I also have raised children with special needs. Aquanetta's goal for Ben was to raise him to be as independent as possible. She didn't want him to be handicapped by his condition. She expected just as much from him as from her other children. And while she gladly worked with his therapists, teachers, and schools, she also let them know when they overstepped their bounds. She was a very good advocate for Ben.

This book provides an unblinking look at Aquanetta's troubled past, as well as the difficulties of dealing with retinal cancer and the blindness that followed. Aquanetta tells us about her tears, her fears, and frustrations; but also about the ways that God worked in her life and Ben's life. God used many people to encourage her, Ben being one of the biggest encouragers.

I enjoyed this book and recommend it.
