WONDERFUL AS A GIFT!!!! Jul 19, 2008
This book is wonderful, particularly as a gift for someone going through a tough time. I bought this for my father and uncle after receiving it as a gift when I lost my brother (my fathers son and uncle's nephew). It meant more receiving it as a gift, as my friend thought of me when reading it, it put GOD in perspective and was a comfort to read.

God Is in the Hard Stuff Jul 17, 2007
God is in the Hard Stuff is written by the authors of the best selling book God is in the Small Stuff. This book was written in response to the one question that always rocks faith the most. Why do bad things happen to good people?
This inspirational work begins with the Footprints in the Sand poem, my mother's favorite poem and the mainstay of her life philosophy. This piece sets the tone for the entire book which states that believing in God does not take away troublesome times or make you immune to pain. Such situations are important to our growth and understanding of ourselves and the world around us as we tend to strive harder for change, love, and happiness when we are being challenged.
With this understanding, we learn that troublesome times and difficult situations are not necessarily negative things, that God has a plan, and most importantly God does not abandon us during these seemingly negative times but embraces us as we learn, grow, and strive.
Finally a Way to Understand Life from A Christian Perspective Jan 26, 2006
Reviewed by Beverly Pechin for Reader Views (/06)
When I first started this book I was expecting the same old, same old. What I got, instead was a wonderful resource book that not only could I relate to and understand but would hold forever as a referral book when I needed answers.
This book is filled with every day and not so every day dilemmas in life. My favorite areas were when the authors touched on Cancer and Living in Physical Pain as these were recent aspects of my life I had encountered. The answers were not there in black and white. They didn't do the thinking for you. Instead they put it in perspective, using a Christian based attitude that made you stop and think. Utilizing various areas/books and quotes from the bible they spoke in laymen's terms to help you understand why and what you are going through, from a Christian point of view.
My favorite part of the book is how, at the end of each chapter, the authors create one page of bulleted thoughts and ideas related to the subject. In particular they comment on physical pain that while your pain may seem to last endlessly, it is only in this world and in God's plan it is just a small fraction of the life ahead.
I believe what I enjoyed most is the fact that Bruce and Stan not only put some answers to every day questions and problems we face as human beings into black and white but they didn't shove things at you as "This is the ONLY answer", as some religious books often do, but instead give you thoughts to make you find your own inner answers.
I personally will be purchasing this book to keep tucked up in the closet for those times when a friend needs help and you have no idea what to give them to help them through this situation. For times when death is something not acceptable, as in the case of losing a child or loved one too early, or when a diagnosis seems incredibly unfair. It's something I think everyone should hold onto for looking back on later and remembering the "big picture" of our true life. With skilled writing and the ability to put what we often have trouble understanding, into today's world Bruce and Stan have finally found a way to understand life from a Christian perspective. Kudos!
