When "Into the Deep" crossed my desk a few weeks ago, I glanced at it, but put it aside, as I was reading at least three other books at the time. But something prompted me to pick the book up over the weekend, and I read it straight through. A slim volume, it's a quick read that is both extremely painful and unrelentingly hopeful.

"Into the Deep" is the story of Robert Rogers, who lost his wife and all four of his children in a flash flood in Missouri in 2003.

The scenes where Rogers has to identify the bodies of his children and his wife are nothing short of heart-wrenching. Early on in the book, when Rogers describes how playing with his family was among his greatest joys, and how he would literally bless them every day, we get a glimpse of the fact that this is an extraordinary man.

But it is in Rogers' response to the sudden destruction of his family that we see God's incredible peace and grace truly revealed. Yes, Rogers had his agonizing times of questioning God, and hours of anguished tears. But he was not without hope, and he has come through the tragedy "shining like gold."

This is a book about a tragedy, and if such things touch you deeply, you'll want to keep the Kleenex handy. But as you agonize with Robert Rogers over the loss of his family, you will also rejoice over a faith that is able to sustain a person over the most catastrophic and horrifically painful times. There is great comfort in the fact that Rogers can still say, "God is still good, all the time."

After hearing Mr. Rogers speak at our church, I bought his book for my wife. I have reviewed the book and found it extremely compelling, in that it chronicles a man's struggle with faith in a loving God through incredible immense tragedy.

Mr. Rogers lost his entire family in one horrible stormy night while driving home from of all things, a wonderfully happy celebration - a wedding. This book tells the story of that tragedy and Mr. Roger's reaction to it. Rather than react with a raised fist and a "curse God and die" mentality, Mr. Rogers finds a solid faith in the very center of supreme tragedy.

This is a heartbreaking story, and yet conversely; it is an uplifting story. The loss experienced is overwhelming, incalcuable, yet; the faithfulness of Mr. Roger's to God in the midst of tragedy is also overwhelming. I was moved to sobbing tears by this story, but was also moved to tears by the expression of faith in the midst of horrific circumstances.

The Bible does not promise a life of luxury and problem-free living in return for faith in the Lord. Actually, the Bible states that we will have problems in this life and that we are to remain faithful to the Lord even in the midst of disaster. That is the central message of this book. I think it is a hard message for Christians, for tv evangelists (for years) have promised a prosperity-filled life for those that follow the Lord. The prosperity gospel is a false gospel. Did Jesus's disciples become rich and lead an easy life to heaven? Of course not, and likewise, neither should we expect anything different.

As a person of faith, you WILL experience difficult, perhaps even disasterous times (such as described in this book).

This book has really impacted me in a big way. I have decided that I want to live the rest of my life with no regrets and to cherish every moment with my family. Yes, God is still good even when there is pain and sorrow, even when things don't make sense. We must make a conscientious effort to trust HIM for God's grace is sufficient for us.

I had heard of this book last year, and wanted to read it, especially after seeing Robert on CNN. I was immediately captivated by the faith that flowed through this man. Yet, I put off reading the book. Perhaps because it forces one to think about the unthinkable. Recently, however, I have had so many people near me dealing with such great sorrows. I felt it was a time for me to look at this book for answers. It arrived today and I read it this afternoon. It is a good size book. I am just a fast reader. I am so grateful for Robert Rogers and his willingness to share his life with us. The book is a hard read, but I think a "must read". Not only is it a story of how God met a grief beyond words, with grace beyond words... it is the story of an incredible family, a loving, godly, giving family. It is not only a story of facing death, it is a story of how to live. It creates in one a deep commitment to love faithfully those who walk through this world with us. Especially our families. The clarion call throughout the book is to live a life without regret. My life truly had been changed, in ways that I hope will matter in this life and the life to come.

I bought this book after hearing an interview on Focus on the Family with Robert Rogers. I was drawn to his story after hearing about this man's faith. His voice had an undescribable peace that I've never heard before. His story is truely amazing and I was blessed to hear about the faithfullness of God in times of trouble. I also currently work with a lot of people who have recently experienced the death of a loved one and it was insightful for me to get a deeper understanding of their grief.

I highly recommend this book for anyone dealing with loss or trying to empathize better with those who have been touched by death.
