“If you get embarrassed crying in public, this is not a book to read on the train!” warns Evangelicals Now

“If you get embarrassed crying in public, this is not a book to read on the train!” warns Evangelicals Now

A review of A life Worthwhile by John Mollitt is reviewed by David Stone in Evangelicals now.

The Evangelicals Now review of A Life Worthwhile is very complimentary of Mollitt’s work, writing, “Mollitt is very open and honest about his joys and hardships and it will help those who are caring for others, and finding it hard to see God at work there.”

The review points out one of the key challenges the book presents, “It confronts the temptation to view people through their achievements and reminds us of God’s grace to the most vulnerable.”

The inspiring, and highly emotional story, left David Stone with one warning, “Be sure to read it somewhere it’s safe to cry!”


The book shows the reality of living out the Christian belief that every life is God given and infinitely precious.

About the Book

When Pastor John Mollitt read in a newspaper that a four-week-old boy had been taken into hospital, he somehow knew that this baby boy would be the next foster child that he and his wife Pat would care for. Aaron arrived for a year of fostering, the beginning of a process that eventually led to his adoption.

Despite his complex medical needs and the doctors saying he would probably not reach the age of 10, Aaron lived life to the full for 28 years, bringing joy, hope and inspiration to those around him. He went to a special school from the ages of 4 to 18, enjoyed a tailored programme based on the National Curriculum and even met royalty.

This is a story of God’s love expressed in the life of a family, and how their commitment to one another enabled them to overcome great challenges.
