|A must read for everyone (believers & unbelievers alike) Jan 3, 2007|
|Charles Stanley is used by God to communicate very clearly. This book has helped my wife and me and so many other friends to understand and deal effectively with adversity. It will help believers mature to a new level and is also a great witnessing tool to unbelieving friends and family since adversity is common to us all.|
|What a blessing! Jun 21, 2006|
|This life is full of changes and turns in the road. Adversity is a given. This book is encouraging and helpful in dealing with difficult times in our lives. It gives hope and assurance of our loving Father's control over all things. Trust in Him to weave your adversity into the fabric of your life to make you into the image of Christ. Adversity need not be a stopping point in life, but rather a time to draw near to God and learn from him how to overcome and prosper. I recommend this book very highly.|
|"Written from the heart of God...." Jun 19, 2004|
|Everyone seems to know how to tell us the best way to handle troubles these days. Charles Stanley knows how to tell us the Scriptural way, and truly writes from the heart of God.|
Frankly, this book is only matched by the Joseph story in learning how God wants us to handle adversity. "With Joseph in the University of Adversity" is one of the best on this.
Both this, and the Joseph book speak to us from the heart, and not from the lofty heights of pedantic scholarship. Dr. Stanley is loved by nearly everyone. His unique in insight into surviving adversity will only add to his followers!
|A TRULY AWESOME BOOK! Sep 11, 2003|
|This book says it all. It has really helped me during my times of adversity. It really gives you a perspective of just how temporary everything in this world is, and that one day JUSTICE will finally be served to all who have been avenged. Some day the temporary "party" will finally come to an end, and wicked people will ultimately be punished.|
|In dark times this book is helpful. Jan 15, 2000|
|You will find all the answers to why things happen in our lives for a reason. If you are going through adversity in your life, you may find this book helpful.|
