Unreasonable Hope Finding Faith in the God Who Brings Purpose to Your Pain By Chad Veach Review
Where was God when ____? How could God allow ____? Why? These are the questions that flood our hearts and minds when the unimaginable happens. When things go horribly wrong and the world seems to be unraveling, how do you believe in God s goodness? How do you cling to hope?
Chad Veach directs readers away from cliched Sunday school answers that fail to offer real comfort or provide faith-building insights. Instead, he draws from God's promises in the Bible and from the story of his own daughter's diagnosis of a devastating and debilitating disease to reveal simple, purposeful steps for dealing with pain.
Resting in God's love, remembering his past faithfulness, and realizing the distinction between having faith and clinging to hope are just some of these steps. Veach reminds us that because we know who God is, we know there is hope."
I recevied a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's Review- The story is real and filled with pain and sadness, but it is strong and shows how much faith can provide hope. The author shares openly in a way that filled my heart and mind all week.
