Chad Veach directs readers away from cliched Sunday school answers that fail to offer real comfort or provide faith-building insights. Instead, he draws from God's promises in the Bible and from the story of his own daughter's diagnosis of a devastating and debilitating disease to reveal simple, purposeful steps for dealing with pain. Resting in God's love, remembering his past faithfulness, and realizing the distinction between having faith and clinging to hope are just some of these steps.

Popular pastor and rising evangelical star Chad Veach comes alongside readers facing pain, loss, or crushed dreams to take them on a journey toward a deeper understanding of God and irrepressible hope.
Insignificant concerns bring us down every day. Thats part of being human. But at some point, most of us will also experience a taste of the bitterest, most unfathomable pain that a fallen world can dish out. Yet these horrible momentswhen you want to look up to the heavens and screamare the very moments when you can learn the most about our loving God.
Chad and Julia Veach are the pastors of Zoe LA. In 2010, their daughter was diagnosed with a rare brain disorder, lissencephaly, which would probably kill her before she was ten and would fill their home with seizures and sickness in the meantime. And yet, this was the moment when a compassionate God became the most real.
Unreasonable Hope is not a book about a sad little girl with a brain disorder. Its not a book about a pastors struggle to cope with pain. Its not about bitterness, panic, depression, or fear. Unreasonable Hope is about Jesus Christ, the provider and protector, the one who is with us in the midst of every storm.
Do we know the purpose of every struggle and hardship? No. But that doesnt mean we cant find him through it all.
