In a world of hype, we may buy into the idea that through Jesus, well be healthier and wealthier as well as wiser. So what happens when we become ill, or depressed, or bankrupt? Did we do something wrong? Has God abandoned us? As a child, Michael Horton would run up the down escalator, trying to beat it to the top. As Christians, he notes, we sometimes seek God the same way, believing we can climb to him under our own steam. But we cant, which is why we are blessed that Jesus descends to us, especially during times of trial. In Too Good to Be True, Horton exposes the pop culture that sells Jesus like a product for health and happiness and reminds us that our lives often lead us on difficult routes we must follow by faith. This book offers a series of powerful readings that demonstrate how, through every type of earthly difficulty, our Father keeps his promises from Scripture and works all things together for our good.
Michael Horton is the author of over 20 books and host of the White Horse Inn, a nationally syndicated radio program. He is the professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics at Westminster Seminary California and the editor-in-chief of Modern Reformation magazine. A popular blogger and sought-after lecturer, he resides in Escondido, California with his wife and children.
Anna WoodMobile, ALAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Highly RecommendedJuly 25, 2011Anna WoodMobile, ALAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5We, as Christians, are to follow in the footsteps of our Master; as Christ suffered, so must we. Since suffering is inevitable in a Christian's life, the mature Christian will prepare to meet suffering head-on so that, when it comes, he might, by God's grace, grow through it while understanding it is by God's hand and to His glory. A Place For Weakness by Michael Horton is just such a book.
This is not a book of comfort or one designed to bring peace in the midst of fire. It is, rather, a very wise look at suffering that is designed to enable us to go through the fire intact and trusting God. Though we can never know exactly why things happen as they do, we can trust in the goodness and mercy of the One Who allows them to happen in such a way. A Place For Weakness examines the Biblical text as it relates to suffering and the providence of God and enables the reader to come to knowledge and understanding of such.
This book would be useful for counselors, ministers and Bible teachers but it's message is also one that is worth sharing with any Christian who desires to know the Who behind the "why?". I highly recommend it.
