Hungry for the Glory of God? Mar 2, 2007
Greg Harris writes from firsthand experience dealing with suffering both physical and spiritual. "The Road" chapter helps the reader know how to respond when God says "no" sometimes even for a long period of time. The other chapters are equally valuable and enriched with grace, understanding, and clarity. Greg writes in a way that common people can understand, yet theologians can dive right in. This book has been a treasure of truth which I have returned to time and time again having many of my questions answered walking down the road of the Christian life. I wholeheartedly recommend it knowing it will help people know God better and to get into His Word.
Honoring God in the midst of suffering Jul 27, 2006
Greg Harris has written a thoroughly biblical, very helpful book on suffering that every Christian should read. This 170-page paperback book titled The Cup and the Glory, is an excellent treatment of a very difficult subject. In it Harris tries to help Christians honor God by pointing them toward biblical answers to the very hard questions of life. Why has such suffering come into my life? How can I honor God through my most difficult moments?
The Cup and the Glory does not treat suffering lightly. The author himself has been through many valleys of trials and pain which he graciously shares throughout the pages of this book. As Harris relates his own personal struggles, readers travel through the pages of Scripture with him as he seeks to understand why a good God has walked him along such a difficult road. Reading this book is like sitting down with a very godly pastor and allowing him to shepherd your soul so that you, too, can triumph through the hardships of life.
Harris' own words best describe his purpose for writing this book. His hope is that The Cup and the Glory will "offer new insights into the graciousness of God as He lovingly uses suffering to draw us nearer to Him and to conform us closer to the image of Christ. At its heart, the lessons re-teach us the simple truth that God is God-and God is in control." (p. 18)
Every Christian should read this book. And every Christian should keep this book ready on their bookshelf at home to help family and friends when they are led down the pathway of suffering. - James Billings, Christian Book [...]
