Overview We've all heard this question - now here's the answer What do you plan to do about it now? Time to stop being trod upon, and start doing the treading.
Community Description This is the first of a three book series.
Written in a professional yet homespun manner, Why Bad Things Happen to Good People is a scriptural and inspired analysis of the Old Testament promised land and how it relates to the New Testament entry into the revealed promised land. This book endeavors to call a sleeping church back to the foundations of Jesus and exhorts us to devote ourselves to the training necessary to participate in that message. With due diligence paid to those attributes that are enemies of mankind, the impetus is toward combating the root source of hardship as opposed to dealing with its end result. Special attention is paid to the kingdom of God and to the fact that many more servants than merely the twelve apostles participated in this message, opening the door for us all to volunteer for His Service.

Finally - Direct answers to the direct question Dec 1, 2005
This book is undoubtedly a work that calls your entire belief network into question. No matter how you were raised, this will make you re-evaluate your own understanding. It is rough in some parts, and you may think the author is out to lunch, but after you sit and digest it (providing you finished reading it and didn't throw it away) you will become more and more aware of the absolute truth that is displayed. Everyone in America should be acquainted with this work in one way or another. I'm personally looking forward to the massive change in our attitudes and understanding as that begins to occur.
God is Faithful May 1, 2005
I have read other books with similar titles and have been frustrated by the inability of the author to have a revelation from God's Word about the subject. Mark Bristow offers insight into this subject that only comes from much prayer and revelation from the Holy Spirit. He analyzes the journey of the Israelites from the stranglehold of Egypt, to the land that was promised to Abraham flowing with milk and honey. The author understands that when God makes a covenant with man it is impossible for Him to break it. For God is faithful to perform that which He has promised, shall it not come to pass. The only thing that will interfere with his promise is man's failure to be obedient and to believe that God will fulfill what He has promised. Mark clearly demonstrates his understanding that the Old Testament is a foreshadow of the New Testament, and that God's way of dealing with Israel is the same way that He deals with the New Testament Church. Mark points out that there are consequences for our actions. Good consequences when we are obedient and walk in faith. And bad consequences when we walk in the natural and are influenced by the circumstances. I would encourage anyone to read this book that wants to receive the wonderful blessings that God has provided through Jesus. The Body of Christ must know the truth for the truth will set us free. We must be the example to the world that God is faithful.
