Reviews - What do customers think about Into The Deep?

Triumph Through Tragedy  Nov 29, 2008
After hearing Mr. Rogers speak at our church, I bought his book for my wife. I have reviewed the book and found it extremely compelling, in that it chronicles a man's struggle with faith in a loving God through incredible immense tragedy.

Mr. Rogers lost his entire family in one horrible stormy night while driving home from of all things, a wonderfully happy celebration - a wedding. This book tells the story of that tragedy and Mr. Roger's reaction to it. Rather than react with a raised fist and a "curse God and die" mentality, Mr. Rogers finds a solid faith in the very center of supreme tragedy.

This is a heartbreaking story, and yet conversely; it is an uplifting story. The loss experienced is overwhelming, incalcuable, yet; the faithfulness of Mr. Roger's to God in the midst of tragedy is also overwhelming. I was moved to sobbing tears by this story, but was also moved to tears by the expression of faith in the midst of horrific circumstances.

The Bible does not promise a life of luxury and problem-free living in return for faith in the Lord. Actually, the Bible states that we will have problems in this life and that we are to remain faithful to the Lord even in the midst of disaster. That is the central message of this book. I think it is a hard message for Christians, for tv evangelists (for years) have promised a prosperity-filled life for those that follow the Lord. The prosperity gospel is a false gospel. Did Jesus's disciples become rich and lead an easy life to heaven? Of course not, and likewise, neither should we expect anything different.

As a person of faith, you WILL experience difficult, perhaps even disasterous times (such as described in this book). Having the example of Robert Rogers and his reaction to having all that was important to him taken away in one single moment, is an object lesson for us all. Faith is what God requires of us in ALL circumstances, and this book clearly demonstrates a faith that brings Mr. Rogers through the storm all the way to the other side.

This is a remarkable story that all Christians and persons of faith need to consider, for life will not always go according to plan. When our lives fall apart, will our faith be strong enough to hold our lives together? This book shows one man's reaction to that question. Like Job, the ultimate message of this book is this: "Even though he slay me, yet will I praise him!".

Very sad  Sep 18, 2008
I like true stories, even sad ones, but normally do not read personal stories written by a second person (the "with..." books) because I am not sure how much real personality of the author is coming in. Stan Finger is a good writer and this, for the most part, was well done. It was very sad and may be too much to take for those with small children. However, it does a good job of telling over and over until we believe it that God is a refuge from any storm and provides comfort from any sorrow. Actually I think we would have to experience it (God forbid) to really understand this the way Mr. Rogers finally did. I would give this book at least four stars except for the ending. I was all primed to hear a story of what happened once Rogers devoted himself to God and began a ministry. This part was drastically abbreviated, as though they had spent enough time, and wanted to bring it to a close. I guess that story, with his new wife Inga, is still unfolding and may become another book. A book well worth reading, packed full of appropriate Bible quotes, and just short of being as inspiring, as it could have been.
Deeply Moving  Aug 30, 2008
A story of the triumph of faith over crushing grief, sensitively related and strongly motivating to use every day and every opportunity to live each day without regret.

Highly recommended
Research this story before you buy this book  Apr 30, 2008
Please research this story before you buy this book. I do not question Mr. Rogers relationship with GOD, but I do question his effort to save his family during this flood. Spend some time and research the story, look at the facts and decide for yourself. You may decide to spend your money elsewhere.
Great Testimony  Jan 7, 2008
I had heard Robert speak two times so I knew his story; nevertheless, I found the book both compelling and helpful. By helpful I mean that Robert writes about "feelings" of that accident that I had either not heard or he had not said in his oral testimony. I found it helpful and interesting as well to read more of the details of his story and to see the pictures of his family and the accident scene. I am an emotional person and I cried constantly while reading the book. I think the book is well written. I purchased copies to give as gifts because I think Robert does present a powerful testimony of real, tested, proven faith in God.
