The Book of BOB: A True Story of Friendship and Discipleship


By Joe Culumber with Bob Johnson

Bob Johnson was at a low point in his life not knowing where to turn for help. He and his wife had struggled with alcohol and drugs for years. The COVID pandemic had set in, and Bob’s wife was suffering from multiple sclerosis, complicated by the onset of dementia. No longer able to care for her alone, he reluctantly placed her in a memory care facility, which was under quarantine because of the pandemic. In desperation, he responded to a retired pastor’s offer for prayer and comfort found on a neighborhood social media platform. What began with a visit and chicken soup quickly blossomed into a friendship. The result was a dramatically changed life by the love of a friend and the love of God.
