Publisher's Description

What Can You Do When Life Doesn’t Turn Out Like You Planned?
 
How do you respond when your husband or wife tramples your emotions?  When your boss fires you unexpectedly?  When you lose your life’s savings?  When the child you’ve loved and prayed for turns his back on you and your values? 
 
When disappointments like these smash their way into your life, you may want to scream, "How could God let this happen?"
 
But what if God didn’t just "let it happen"?  What if the things you call disappointments are really His appointments—events He is using to make you more like Christ?  What if your circumstances are actually the flames of His grace, intended to melt and burn away the undesirable elements in your life, leaving you pure and radiant—like refined silver?
 
You can be defeated by life’s unavoidable disappointments, or you can become stronger because of them.
 
Life’s disappointments can send you on a dangerous downward spiral into discouragement, depression, or even despair.  But in this eye-opening book, Kay Arthur guides you to biblical truths that will help you break that cycle and instead embrace disappointment as the cleansing fire God uses to make you—as silver refined—a reflection of His goodness.

Now includes a 16 week Bible study!

As Silver Refined: Answers to Life's Disappointments by Kay Arthur is an insightful book that promotes healing in the midst of pain and discouragement. Her subjects range from defeat and despair, to endurance and God's sovereignty. This book addresses serious and relevant topics with hope for recovery and lists of healthy principles. She challenges readers to continue to grow and not fall into damaging habits.

Arthur uses both real-life examples and Bible passages to convey her points. She does so with honesty, transparency, and love, encouraging readers every step of the way. She is tactful but doesn't gloss over what needs to be said. Her writing style is engaging and quickly draws the audience in for an enjoyable experience.

Throughout the book, Arthur keeps coming back to the theme of refined silver. She emphasizes that trials help cleanse lives of impurities and that God, in his infinite goodness and wisdom, never leaves but controls everything. She also reminds readers, though, that they have a choice on how they decide to respond to God's offers. One of the supporting verses Arthur quotes is Psalm 66:10, "For Thou has tried us, O God; Thou hast refined us as silver is refined."

This book is a must read, whether readers have experienced a lot or a little pain in life. This book practices restoration as well as prevention, and it even includes a study guide in the back for readers who want to go deeper. This book is both an easy and enjoyable text, as well as very enlightening. I would recommend As Silver Refined to anyone from young adult on up. - Rachel Vachon, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
