The Boy Born Dead

A Story of Friendship, Courage, and Triumph

About

Where we see tragedy, God sees possibility . . .

"Born dead is not exactly the best start to life--but that is how David's story begins. Don't miss one riveting page."--Franklin Graham, president, Billy Graham Evangelistic Association

"Sometimes the challenges a person with a disability experiences are not what you'd expect. David Ring shares how family and friendship helped shape his indomitable spirit, strong character, and remarkable zeal for life. Best of all, we learn how God used his limitations to develop a much-beloved message of grace and hope that would expand beyond his wildest dreams."--Joni Eareckson Tada, Joni and Friends International Disability Center

"Nothing forces us to grow in every area of life like adversity. And I don't know anyone who's become more successful by overcoming more challenges than David Ring."--Dave Ramsey, New York Times bestselling author and nationally syndicated radio show host

"Very few people can speak to adversity and overcoming obstacles with greater authority than David."--from the foreword by Mike Huckabee


In 1953, in Jonesboro, Arkansas, a baby boy was born--dead. The attending physician set his little body aside and tended to his mother for eighteen minutes. Now, more than sixty years later, that boy leads an internationally known ministry that encourages hundreds of thousands every year. The Boy Born Dead traces the roots of this harrowing, humorous, and heartfelt story.

Few American epics of tragedy, intrigue, friendship, and faith will entertain and challenge the soul like the narrative inspired by the real-life events of David Ring--a boy literally born dead who survives but not without sobering consequences. Living with the harsh realities of cerebral palsy, Ring faces impossible odds yet stumbles into an improbable life of inspiration and influence in the small, unassuming town of Liberty, Missouri, in the 1960s.

As a teenage boy, Ring finds himself tragically orphaned and being shuffled about to various homes. Along this journey, he faces secret, unspeakable atrocities that eventually plunge him into the depths of depression and attempted suicide. But amid the harsh troubles of life, he encounters another boy his age named David, the son of a local pastor. Their unlikely friendship begins on the rocks, but eventually develops into something extraordinary and unique that alters the trajectory of both of their lives--and the whole town of Liberty--forever.
