A worthwhile addition to your library... Oct 2, 2003
Let's face it, Christians have somewhat of a reputation of being goody two shoes ethereal nerds with an easy life provided by fairy god angels. Nothing could be further from the truth. David Foster busts that myth wide open. From both the Old and New Testaments, he brings forth examples to prove that God's chosen people are going to have it tough. That is intimidating, but he also shows that by our attitude to these difficulties, roadblocks can become mountains to conquer. Wasting no words, he makes clear and concise points regarding depression, regrets, rejection, burnout, etc.
*** Fans of Philip Yancey or Alan L. McGinnis will find this to be a worthwhile addition to their library. Maybe reading this will not make the load you have been entrusted with lighter, but it will help build the muscles to carry it. ***
