Wheres our confidence? Our hope? Is it possible that, in our hyper-vigilance against our enemies, real or perceived, weve taken our eyes off of Jesus, our protector and Redeemer? With tremendous spiritual insight and a rapier wit, Karen Spears Zacharias weaves a compelling narrative of faith versus fear. How is it that those of us who claim to be so firmly founded can be so easily shaken? How do we believe that a God who loves us more than we can comprehend can be willed by us to harm those who do not share our beliefs? As wars rumble and personal conflicts tear at the fabric of our lives, where is our Jesus? Zacharias finds him in a Vietnamese war widow, in a young man decimated by HIV, in the burnt remains of a handmade maternity outfit, and in the strength of a mother with a gun held to her chest. Along the way she offers a profound meditation on the nature of faith, the evidence of things not yet seen. God is specific in his intentions toward us, Zacharias says. He came to give us hope. Wheres Your Jesus Now? puts readers back on the path to finding it again.
