You lost your job. Your son ran away. A loved one just died from cancer. Your best friend is getting a divorce. The list is endless.
Adversity is a reality that no one can avoid. Everyone asks why when adversity strikes. Yet Dr. Stanley contends, "As much as we all want to know the answer to the why question, it is really not the most significant question. The real question each of us needs to ask is, 'How should I respond?'"
How to Handle Adversity helps you learn to
- Ask the right questions about adversity
- Become a comfort to others
- Rediscover the faithfulness of God
- Deal with pride and weakness
- Look at adversity from God's perspective
- Glorify God in your adversity
If you are a child of God whose heart's desire is to see God glorified through you, adversity will not put you down for the count. There will be those initial moments of shock and confusion. But the man or woman who has God's perspective on this life and the life to come will always emerge victorious! â·Charles Stanley
Dr. Charles Stanley is senior pastor of First Baptist Church in Atlanta. He is the founder and president of In Touch® Ministries. His bestselling books include The Source of My Strength and How to Listen to God.
SuzQ5 Stars Out Of 5December 30, 2013SuzQQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The book exceeded my expectations. I found it very helpful in readjusting my attitudes toward adversity and suffering. The book is an easy read. I started highlighting passages that really spoke to me...it would have been easier to highlight passages that didn't seem to resonate with me.
Josh5 Stars Out Of 5Not For Anxiety Or DepressionJuly 31, 2012JoshQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The book is very biblically sound, but for those of you suffering with anxiety or depression, like myself, this is not for you. Dr. Stanley uses Paul's permanent thorn in his flesh as reference several times and this disturbed my anxiety. This is more for those going through situational hardships. It would be great for anybody dealing with the trials listed in the description.

During these times, God is showing you His working hand in your life. Part of His work is breaking your pride. He desires humility in His children.

Elena Shore5 Stars Out Of 5November 20, 2006Elena ShoreOne of the absolute best books I have read. (And I read a lot.) Very balanced look at the tragedies we face as we walk in service to the King. Solid, easy to read, encouraging, and comforting. Meat, even for the mature Christian.
