Although the evil King Herod plotted to kill all newborn males in hopes of killing the promised king, his efforts were futile. God, in his infinite wisdom, had already plotted an escape route for Joseph, Mary, and the baby. Jesus miraculously survived the killing field of King Herod, and he grew from a child to a man. He transformed the lives of ordinary people and made them do extraordinary things. Many recognized him as being the Son of God by the signs, wonders, and miracles he performed and they followed him. He gave sight to those who were blind, baptized those who believed in him, healed those who were sick, preached to those who needed to hear the truth, forgave those who needed to be forgiven, and delivered those who were bound by the chains of sin. Before Jesus was taken up into heaven, he gave all of those who followed him the power to transform lives, heal the sick, preach the truth and free those who are bound by sin. He told them they would do greater works than he did—if only they would be willing to work.
This book is a comprehensive and up-to-date review of all aspects of childhood epilepsy for the specialist neurologist or paediatrician with an interest in this area. The first edition was praised for its valuable clinical approach to examining the nature of epileptic syndromes and for its appropriate and readable coverage of the underlying basic science, features that are retained and expanded upon in this revision. Particular updates include full coverage of new developments in epidemiology, genetics, classification, imaging, drug therapy and other treatments. Several new chapters have been added, covering eyelid myoclonia, Rasmussen's syndrome, cognitive and behavioural manifestations of epilepsy, and vagal nerve stimulation.
This book is essential reading for paediatric neurologists, epileptologists and paediatricians, and will continue to provide invaluable support for any physician confronted by a child with epilepsy.

It is hoped that it will bring glory and honour to the Lord Our God and be a help and a blessing to the reader.
