Overcoming Tests of Faith. How will your faith hold up?
There are times when we think we’ve got our world figured out. We live our lives with a sense of normality and then, wham! Out of left field, comes a faith-breaking explosion that rocks what little we thought we knew of ourselves and of God.
Sometimes it’s global. The news shouts at us about a natural disaster, terrorist attack or an all-consuming virus causing worldwide impact.
Other times, it feels personal. Like someone has aimed an assault directly on target. Maybe it’s a financial crisis, a sick loved one or just day after day of defeat.
As things get crazier in the world, will faith in God get us through?
You may be new to faith in God, questioning whether He exists or even cares. Maybe you’ve grown up going to church and have had faith for years, not doubting God’s existence but wondering, “Where is God in so much suffering?” Why doesn’t he make it just stop? How could a loving God allow people to go through so much pain?
This book does not avoid these questions but dives right in and beyond to a perspective that is out of this world.
