Publisher's Description

Finding hope for the downcast soul.

Overview

When doubt, confusion, or suffering threaten to drag us into the black hole of despair, the saving hand of hope can seem elusive. Even despair, however, cannot keep us from the fierce and faithful protector of our soul. It is during these dark nights of the soul that we begin to understand that true faith is hope demonstrated regardless of circumstances.

Why does God allow dark nights of the soul ? How did God restore Elijah s hope when he hid in loneliness and despair? How did God the Father strengthen Jesus in his anguish at Gethsemane? What happened when Habakkuk questioned God? The purpose of this study is to learn to embrace the dark nights of the soul.
