Item description for MEETING GOD AT A DEAD END by Ron Mehl...
Overview Facing the day-to-day challenges of life, it's easy to convince ourselves we can solve any crisis. Sometimes it takes a dead end to remind us that we don't have all the answers-but God does. Through a series of inspiring true-life stories-some gripping, others hilarious-Ron Mehl illustrates how dead ends in life can make us reach for God with a sincerity and eagerness we have never known before. God can transform any dead end into a highway of triumph over disappointment and a mighty assurance of His love.

Reviews - What do customers think about MEETING GOD AT A DEAD END?
Ron Mehl was gifted with the ability to encourage others in life's walk. I have now read three books by him. This one, What God Nov 28, 2007
Ron Mehl was gifted with the ability to encourage others in life's walk. I have now read three books by hi; God Works the Night Shift, What God Whispers in the Night, and Meeting God at a dead end. All three have a similar theme. Mehl tells his readers that God is always there for you, even if you cannot see or feel him. He wants the reader to remember that faith can go a long way and that God does work for our benefit. He peppers his books with interesting and uplifting real life stories. These are not deep tholigical books, but they are good for those dark times.
Hope for the hurting heart Oct 18, 2007
I was at a crossroads in my life and hurting deeply when I found this book at a yard sale. I had never heard of Ron Mehl before this time but since then, I have purchased almost all of his books and buy them for friends. Truly, this book will bring hope to the hurting. You won't regret this purchase or any other book by this author.
TERRIFIC BOOK! Sep 5, 2000
This book is filled with spiritual stories and insights that will lift the soul into a peaceful place. God's love is magnified through Mr. Mehl's writings, and again he persuades us to trust and fall on God's mercy even when facing a dead end. Excellent book!
A real faith builder and a great read Mar 9, 2000
I picked up this little volume at a rummage sale because the cover caught my eye. However, when I started reading the book, I found the content so compelling and so inspiring, I had to lay the book down for a moment [again and again] and simply think through what I'd just read. It is quite intense. Mehl shares an insight into the Bible that is truly remarkable. He speaks right to the core of the issue and explains things in simple, clear and concise language.
His style reminds me of William Barclay, one of the most beloved Bible commentators of the century. As was said of Barclay (and is true of Mehl, as well) "He saved the Bible from the experts."
I discovered this book at a time when I was struggling Sep 4, 1999
How truly amazing and faithful God is. I know these truths in my heart, but when things happen in my life to prove it, I can't help but be overcome with awe at Him. I discovered this book at a time when I was struggling with direction in my life. I had none. Pretty big struggle, don't you think? I was done with college--I finished student teaching in December of '98, I was done with my temporary job for the Spring in a school district, and it was now the summer and I didn't know what I wanted to do next. I did not have any leads, or any desire for that matter to pursue anything. I felt a true loss of direction for the first time in my life. I couldn't tell where God wanted me to go next, and was desperately looking for answers, but to no avail--a true "dead end". I was in a Christian bookstore one day, just browsing and looking to see if they had any Ron Mehl books (my favorite author) available. There on the shelf were only two of Ron's books, The Ten(der) Commandments (which I already had), and a book called "Meeting God at a Dead End". I was stunned. Literally. I just stood there in the middle of the aisle, with this book in my hand. This book, that, before I had even opened it, had me feeling like I was Charlie from Willie Wonka holding the Golden ticket. I couldn't believe that there was a book by my favorite author, with a title that summed up my life at that point, in my hands! OK, so I am a dramatic person, but it was a pretty great moment. What was even greater was when I actually went home and read my Golden ticket. I didn't realize how badly I needed this book in my life. I felt as if Ron knew exactly what was happening to me, and exactly what words and Scripture to use to give me hope, encouragement, trust and faith in God. This book gives hope for every kind of "dead end"--where you feel like you don't know where to turn or who to turn to. Ron shows in his usual excellent way that the Lord is who you want to turn to. The Lord is who's watching over you and is there at that dead end, ready to take on whatever is troubling you in your life--you just have to let Him.
