"Rob Morgan never disappoints me. His books do what a good book should do: make you think about life from a new and fresh perspective. The Promise is a brand new treatment of an old and enduring verse. After you have finished reading it, put it where you can find it. If you don't need it, someone you love will!" -David Jeremiah, author of Signs of Life: Back to the Basics of Authentic Christianity
“For years Robert Morgan has inspired me with his pastoral insights and heartfelt storytelling. In The Promise, he celebrates the mystery and power of one of the Bible's most poignant verses. Thoughtful, inspiring, and comforting, this book will help Christians find hope and encouragement as they live out their part in God's glorious story.”
—Steven James, storyteller and award-winning author of Story: Recapture the Mystery
“In The Promise Rob Morgan has put walking shoes on Romans 8:28. He has then walked it through life situations making application along the journey. With laser point accuracy he has focused our attention where it should be – on ‘God' who works all things together for our good rather than on "things" that we too often dwell upon.”
—Jim Mullen, managing director, Billy Graham Evangelistic Association

Inspiring and encouraging Apr 13, 2010
I have never read Mr. Morgan before, and now I am a huge fan. This book has so many inspiring and encouraging points, I truly had trouble parting with it. I have found that now, during one of the most difficult times of my life, this book led me to the truth of God's plan and purpose, and my need to relinquish control to Him. I would highly recommend this book to everyone.
The Promise Mar 8, 2010
"The Promise" by Robert Morgan focuses on verse found in Romans 8:28 (We know all things work together for the good of those who love God; those who are called according to His purpose).
Each chapter is titled after a part of Romans 8:28.
Among the points covered include:
1. Our optimism needs to be based in Jesus Christ instead of positive thinking and other secular ways. 2. The Bible contains many promises for the believer. 3. We will probably not get all of our questions answered this side of eternity. 4. God is interested in the details of our lives. 5. Let God use your life to bring glory and honor to Him.
A good and encouraging read for the believer going through tough times. Also a good read for the unbeliever who is looking for a greater purpose in life.
