Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Genuine, lasting peace can be yours

We all experiences times of sadness, trials, and pain. But what happens when grief and depression seem so overwhelming that we feel like simply giving up?

As the founder of World Challenge, Inc., David Wilkerson worked with troubled people of every kind. In this encouraging book, he examines the universal problem of discouragement and offers you real hope for the days, weeks, months, and years ahead. He shows you how to

win over temptation
lay down your guilt
trust God to bring you through the storm
achieve victory over sin
wait on God's answers to prayer
and much more

Only God can conquer your hurts. With powerful true stories and wisdom gleaned from a lifetime of service, Wilkerson gently guides you to the point of giving it over to God and believing that He will work miracles in your life.


David Wilkerson (1931-2011) was the founder of Teen Challenge and World Challenge and longtime senior pastor of Times Square Church. He ministered to people worldwide and authored more than thirty books, including the bestselling The Cross and the Switchblade and Knowing God by Name. On the day of his death he was still ministering. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The most important thing for me in this book is the reassurance that somewhere inside, I still love God. I was beginning to think I'd lost my faith, I'd even told God "I give up on you." But I really didn't mean it. I felt like I was a failure and not good enough for God any more, because I couldn't hold back my own depression and self-hate. But Wilkerson writes, "If you were running from God, you could probably understand why the testing and severe trials kept coming on... But you are not running, not rejecting Him in any way... You yearn to please God and want only to serve Him with all that is in you. That is why your hurting is so debilitating... From somewhere deep inside you, a voice whispers, 'Maybe I'm defective..."
How did Wilkerson know? I don't cry, but reading that made me cry.
He talks later about the crosses we have to bear. I guess mine is heavy sometimes. I wanted to die. I wanted to remove my darkness from God's light in this world. But this book has helped me to see I am not alone among Christians.
Because I don't understand real love, I often feel separated from God's love. That in turn leads to doubt about whether I'm truly Christian. Wilkerson discusses this also, and says that doubt itself is an insidious enemy. If I can call doubt my enemy, I can fight it with God's help.
I didn't know if I'd read this book because I really was ready to give up. But, it came along at the right time, and had the right title, too.
Thanks, David Wilkerson, and God!

I purchased the book, for the simple fact that I did feel like giving up. I brought it home thumbed through it, then put it down; thinking to myself another book about God and I won't read it. Needless to say I began at page one, and went through the entire book. I could not believe the information that the author put in the pages hit home to the reality that God really loves you and is right there waiting to pick you back up now that your down. My recommendation, if you are distressed with life and feeling that God cannot love you because of sin in your life then this book is for you. Take Care.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book is my second bible so to speak. I have read it at least 5 times. It gives me hope when I feel so worthless at times. It reasures me that I am free from sins grip even thought I don't usually feel that way. The most important point I got from this book is that God is always there to help me in the fight to do his will and that I need to trust in him and not in my own strength to overcome any temptation that I may encounter. Its a great uplifting book that will get you though many a trial along with your Bible of course.

I came across this book in a hospital gift shop about eight years ago. I had recently gone through a terrible break up and experience betrayal. I was hurting and even tough I was a Christian, it shook my faith. This book helped me to heal and I have grown tremendously, because of it.

I bought this book purely by accident. I bought it because I am having marriage problem. The very night that I got this book, I found out my wife is having an affair. Out of despration, I started to read the book, and it is getting me through the toughest time. Especially Chapter 12 - "God has not forgotten you", really gave me a new perspective on the power of Faith and Prayer. My problems are still there, but I am feeling so much better now that I know God is with me every step of the way.

Christians, unite!!! We always knew Satan was out to get us, but this author explains exactly how. Don't feel bad, don't feel sad, pick up this book, and uplift yourself. I recommend it to be used along with your daily Bible study. We all need some strong words of edification, and this book provides plenty.

Sorry in advance if this review is a long one, but this book is my testimony. I have shared this story with many. And I always get the same response..."WOW!"

As a young child, growing up in a southern baptist family, I always thought my beloved grandmother figured I'd go to hell over her dead body. every Sunday for years, I sat there with her. She's gone now, but sitting in church with her are some of the most precious memories I have of my childhood. Accordingly, I was saved and baptised at 9 years old. Not unlike so many others who came to Christ as young kids, when I reached my teens, I got away from God. Doing typical teen stuff, and having a good time. I never stopped believing, I never stopped accepting, I was just too busy being a teenager, I didn't have time for Him. A few years pass, I got married, started having kids, and life was not all that great. My husband and I struggled with low paying jobs, trying to make ends meet, not always making it happen. At the same time, I had been feeling a "pull" in my spirit, I knew the Lord was trying to "bring me back" so to speak. Then one payday came around and I was sorely dissappointed to see that the time keeper had shorted me 6 hours. I didn't even have enough to buy food for the next two weeks till I got paid again. It was literally the last straw. We were struggling so hard, we'd only been married about 4 years, we all know how those first years of marriage can be. It was tough. anyway, it was my lunch break that day when I picked up my pay check and saw the mistake. I was just driving around in my car, crying, sobbing so hard I could barely see. I started yelling and shaking my fist in the air and screaming "Why God?!
