Neither Sparrows Nor Bicycle Riders

Tom Schreiner received news that his wife Diane was involved in a severe bicycle accident, leaving her unconscious with several broken bones and fractures and — of most urgent concern — bruising to her brain. 

On that August day, the Schreiner family knew few details about the accident, and they knew even less about its effect on Diane’s future. 

In the days that followed, Schreiner, a New Testament professor at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky., kept an online CaringBridge journal to update friends and family about his wife’s condition. The journal became a window into the spiritual and emotional state of Schreiner and his family.
