Not by Sight - Chris HarveyIn 1980, Chris Harvey paused from studying for final exams to talk to his college housemate. Gunshots interrupted their conversation as a drunk randomly fired a hunting rifle from the hillside across the street. One bullet penetrated the side of Chris’s house, struck him in the temple, and severed his optic nerves—instantly blinding him.

Not by Sight is a story of faith and courage. Chris lost his sight, but he was determined not to lose God’s vision for his life. Follow his path as God taught him to forgive. See how he refused to let go of his dreams of education, marriage, family, and career. Rejoice with him as he claims God’s promise of eternal life in heaven, where he will see the radiant face of Jesus.

Not by Sight was originally published as Until My Blindfold Comes Off and was the grand prizewinner of the Winter 2009 Christian Choice Book Award and first place winner for the inspirational category of that contest. The newly titled edition includes stories that didn’t make the original book, as well as an update on what God continues to do in Chris’s life.
