Item description for Handling Hot Potatoes - Healing Broken Hearts by Victor Maxwell...
Overview Christians are often blamed for being impractical and unrealistic. Sometimes they are viewed as being too selective and only focusing on the positive and simple aspects of life. Pastors are accused of being quick to major on the prospect of a glorious heaven but they bury their heads when it comes to the gory pains of this life. Perhaps these cicumstances are justified by the attitiude of some Christians who choose to ignore the suffering and problems ordinary people face in what is commonly called 'the real world.' However, and honest reader of the Scriptures must admit that the Bible is not silent on human hurt. Futhermore, the same Scriptures disclose that godly people of all generations have not been immune to the practical difficulties and painful dilemmas that ordinary people face today. Problems and pain are something we all have in common. Christians bleed, cry and hurt like other people. Our faith in Jesus Christ does not insulate us from afflictions and heartache. In this book we look at some of the agonising and distressing issues people face today. -Rebellion in the heart of Africa threatens missionaries. -A bomb tragedy in Omagh kills twenty-nine people. -An earthquake in Japan destroys the heart of Kobe. -A rape in England reveals the horror of a home. -Suicide afflicts young and old. -Homosexuality has become a accectable lifestyle. -Substance abuse is on the increase. -Bad news from the doctor is frightening. -Empty arms and imperfect infants break hearts. These are painful problems we have faced eyeball to eyeball in this book. We have met and interviewed people who have come through very hurtful experiences and have endeavored to give account of thier story. Many of them still wrestle with unaswered questions and shed tears because of their painful past.
