As the potter molds his clay, so Christ can shape lives by leading us through life's often difficult choices and challenges. Inspired by the oral works of Dr. McPherson, The Potter. . .The Clay. . .The Process. . . is written from the perspective of one who understands life's ups and downs and has survived many of life's challenges including a brain tumor, lupus, and eight major surgeries. Dr. McPherson compares the relationship of the potter to the clay with the way that our belief systems bring us through life's difficulties. These challenges and disciplines bring us into a relationship and fellowship with Christ, which leads into a life of submission, permission, positive change, and ultimately, the realization that Jesus Christ is Lord of all and in all situations.
