Item description for When Goliath Doesn't Fall by Jody Conrad...

Overview
Even though the fig trees have no blossoms, and there are no grapes on the vines; even though the flocks die in the fields, and the cattle barns are empty, yet I will rejoice in the Lord! Habakkuk 3: 17-18 You've read the Bible stories of God's amazing faithfulness. You've seen Him extend His blessings and healing to your family and friends. You've even experienced the sweet gift of answered prayer for other issues in your life. But sometimes, no matter how much you pray or cling to the victories of the past, your present problem remains depressingly unchanged with little hope for the future. Most people understand and accept that life isn't always fair; but it's still difficult to get past the hurt and confusion of "why?" when you've prayed and trusted God to defeat an ugly giant in your life only to discover that the giant didn't fall. How do you reconcile and rebuild your faith and hope in Christ when life is allowed to defeat you? In When Goliath Doesn't Fall, Jody Conrad pulls the mask of Christianity down and admits to the ugliness of real life. Sometimes, no matter how hard you pray, babies die. Sometimes, no matter how loyal you've been, your spouse abandons you. Houses catch on fire; tornados demolish entire communities; and terrorists successfully crash into buildings. How are we suppose to respond when Goliath doesn't fall? With compassion and understanding, Jody joins you in life's trenches and tells you about a different kind of deliverance. She shows you the unconditional and strangely hopeful worship of Habakkuk's heart and helps you discover how to cultivate a beautiful, wild faith that is still able to worship; still able to rejoice; still able to sing of the joys of heaven even with cancer in its lungs.

Reviews - What do customers think about When Goliath Doesn't Fall?

My Daughter is in this book!  Jan 20, 2009
Katie was our first child. Her photo album is 'sketchy' at best. I was going to do such a thorough job of scrapbooking her life only to discover I had done very litte. She died at age 26, suddenly in Croatia, while working as a missionary for Campus Crusade for Christ. Acute Leumkemia. We had no idea she was sick. Thank God Jody Conrad called us and wanted to dedicate a chapter to Katie's life in her book "When Goliath Doesn't Fall". So warm and touching. My family will be forever blessed by her talented writing. Thank-you, Jody!!!
 
Wise, Caring, and Empathetic  May 9, 2008
Jody Conrad has written a wise, caring, empathetic resource for people who are going through any and all kinds of trouble or pain. Beautifully, even poetically written, WHEN GOLIATH DOESN'T FALL weaves Scripture, real-life stories, and words of rich consolation into a book that reaches you wherever you hurt, whether you are suffering loss, illness, slander, persecution, opposition, financial problems, or even anxiety over terrorism and world events. Even if you don't feel you need this book right now, someone you know needs it. I suggest you order a couple of copies and keep one handy for lending to friends.

 
When Goliath Doesn't Fall  Apr 7, 2008
Jody Conrad has gotten to the very core of the pain and suffering many Christians experience whether personally or with cherished friends and loved ones. She blends the stories of Abraham, Esther, the Woman at the Well, and Habakkuk (to name a few)with accounts of trials and suffering of Christians today. She shows us the "Deep Altars" of praise to God that can only be achieved by knowing Him and trusting Him. This book has spoken to me in a powerful way and I'm happy to buy more copies to share with others.

When Goliath Doesn't Fall
I highly recommend this book! If you have experienced a loss or heartache, read this book! If you have questions about faith, read this book! If you need a boost of faith-filled inspiration, read this book!
In the world today, too many of us are asking where's God. This incredible book inspires and renews our faith...even when the odds are against everything. Jody Conrad's eloquent prose seamlessly links the reader back to the Bible and the power of God's grace and promises.
