Item description for Trusting God: Even When Life Hurts by Jerry Bridges...

It's easy to trust God when everything's going your way. But what about when things go wrong? Learn the essentials of belief necessary to trust God completely.

WHY IS IT EASIER TO OBEY GOD THAN TO TRUST HIM? Because obeying God makes sense to us. In most cases, His laws appear reasonable and wise, and even when we don't want to obey them, we usually concede that they are good for us.
But the circumstances we find ourselves in often defy explanation. When unexpected situations arise that appear unjust, irrational, or even dreadful, we feel confused and frustrated. And before long we begin to doubt God's concern for us or His control over our lives.

Adversity is hard to endure, and can even be harder to understand. If God were really in control, why would He allow the tragic auto accident or crucial job loss? How could He permit cancer in a loved one or the death of a child?

Grappling with His concern for us we ask, "Why is God allowing this?" or "What have I done wrong?"

In an effort to strengthen his own trust in God during a time of adversity, Jerry Bridges began a lengthy Bible study on the topic of God's sovereignty. What he learned changed his life, and he now shares the fruit of that study with you in Trusting God.

As you begin to explore the scope of God's power over nations, nature, and the detailed lives of individuals, you'll begin to acknowledge His loving control. And as you come to know Him better, you'll find yourself trusting Him more completely. Even when life hurts.

Reviews - What do customers think about Trusting God: Even When Life Hurts?

Trust God  Jan 4, 2007
This book is wonderful and is essential reading for anyone, not only those going through hard times, but also those with questions as to how to let go of our anxieties and worries. Everything Bridges says he back up with the Bible, and he does not skip around the difficult questions, but addresses them. This book was exactly what I hoped for and will be re-read many times I am sure.
The only solid ground  Apr 20, 2006
This book is gold. I read it about 10 years ago as I went through a hard time personally. At the time, I was struggling to come to grips with God's sovereignty. Bridges helped me to see that God's sovereignty is not some raw, unguided power. It is directed by God's boundless wisdom and endless love.

As a Christian pastor, I've read lots of books. But this one is right up the top of the stack. The truths here are truths to be cherished and loved. And so is the God of whom they speak. Here is solid ground indeed.

This is no piece of dead orthodoxy written in a cloister. Rather, it is a profound expression of a Godward and biblical faith that can be lived and loved in spite of life's harsh knocks.

So what are you waiting for? Buy this book! Read it! Pray through it! Grow! And then when you're done here, read another good book! I dunno ... maybe a solid book on prayer like Don Carson's "Call to Spiritual Reformation" or Richard Pratt's "Pray with Your Eyes Open."
Help when the going is tough  Mar 27, 2006
Even Christans can become dicouraged, and Jerry Bridges paints a series of pictures with which any person who has doubted the love of God during a crisis can identify. His explanation of the sovereignty of God cannot fail to encourage those who are in the depths of despair over the loss of a loved one, who are in the midst of a serious illness or who have been disappointed by the actions of others. Unlike many other books in a similiar vein, Mr Bridges backs up his points with scripture - the final authority for a Christian.
Remember The Attributes of God  Mar 22, 2006
What a classic. This book was required reading for a Biblical Counseling class at Southern Seminary. It has forever changed the way I view my faith. When we meditate on God's omniscience, omnipotence, and omnipresence, we cannot help but trust Him! If we truly believe He only purposes good for us, (Romans 8:28-29), then we will trust Him in all we go through!

What a blessing this book has been.
Great Book!  Jun 25, 2005
This is truly a great book. It is both heavily theological and heavily practical.

I found it to be a tad repetetive at times, but it really does a fine job of demonstrating the relationship between the sovereignty of God and our trust in Him in difficult circumstances! A must read!
