      Jerry Bridges, likely known for his popular book "The Pursuit of Holiness," is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. After thorough enjoying (and being convicted by, in a good way) this title, I came across "Trusting God: Even When Life Hurts" as a free audiobook download from ChristianAudio.com. Needless to say, it's one of my favorite books in its category and one that I can immediately recommend to any Christian reader.

      Trusting God is a very practical book with a wide application to many different life scenarios. While Bridges admits from the onset that he does not intend this book for deep suffering and trauma, it does boast a broad reach for nearly any other difficult circumstance that life can experience.

      The author starts out with a question asked two ways: "Can you trust God?" and "Can you trust God?" He then gives reasons why we can answer "yes" to both with confidence and certainty. The basis of trusting God, according to Bridges, is threefold: His sovereignty, wisdom, and love. These are three threads that weave throughout the book as he examines a breadth of content areas we often have difficulty trusting in to show that God is worthy of our trust.

      As is the case with his other work I've read, Bridges is very easy to read and is even surprisingly engaging. He writes almost like an old friend writing a letter addressed personally to you, with warmth and honesty. Yet at the same time, I never found him intellectually shallow or wanting. It's clear from the first pages that he knows God deeply and personally, and he rests firmly in Scripture to determine whether his ideas and application are true.

      This would be a fantastic companion to Robert J. Morgan's "The Promise", a treatise on Romans 8:28 - how God works all things together for good. I highly recommend this book.

      This is a classic book every Christian should read to grasp who God is and how He is at work in our lives. Learning to accept the good and the bad from God's good hand.

      This book came to my attention through another. I am glad I bought it and read it. It is a good reminder of who is really in charge of our world today.
