Publisher's Description

People often recall difficult, tumultuous times with a touch of nostalgia.


What can we learn from the difficult times of life? Are our bad experiences always bad in retrospect? People who have lived through wars or America s Great Depression, or had similar difficult experiences, often remember them as good times. What can we learn from their experience and our own?

    The Issue

Sample questions:

Think back to a particularly trying period in your life. Why might you recall this in a positive light today?

How, according to Yancey, does our American consumer mentality affect relationships?

    The Scriptures

Sample Scriptures:

How did the following people, whom Yancey names, succeed in their individual trials? Abraham: Genesis 22:1 14, Moses: Exodus 3:1 15; 4:10 18, 27 31; Hebrews 11:24 27, David: I Samuel 24:1 13, Elijah: I Kings 19:1 20, Job: Job 2:7 10

    The Application

Sample application questions:

Why is endurance in the face of great difficulty so hard? Why do some people give up relatively quickly?

What factors contribute to our unwillingness to endure difficulty for long?


    Happy Memories of Bad Times, by Philip Yancey (1993)
