Oliver . . . the author's brother who lay in the same bed for 33 years, unable to see, walk, communicate, or feed himself. The child who outlived two of the doctors who said he would not live beyond the age of eight. The immobile child who touched the lives of hundreds and taught them the true meaning of courage and perseverance. The Power of the Powerless is a doorway into the deep lessons of life, love, and faith Christopher de Vinck learned from his brother Oliver. It is a moving testimony to the power God demonstrates in the weakest vessels. It poignantly affirms the immeasurable worth of every person. And it attests powerfully to God's triumphant grace, which transformed adversity into an altar of love and bound a family together in a household of joy.
