Book Description

When painful or frustrating circumstances invade your life, it’s easy to wonder why. Why does life so often seem unfair? Why doesn’t our all-powerful God stop the pain and suffering–not just for you–but for all His children

The truth is, we live in a fallen world filled with fallen people, and we cannot escape hardship and pain. Somehow difficult times are a part of God’s plan and they serve His purposes.

In this six week study you’ll examine what the Bible says about suffering and why God allows it. Through the stories of many who persevered through times of testing, you’ll discover how to find joy even when life seems unfair. You’ll learn how to handle loss while glorifying God in the midst of your pain. And you’ll find the peace that comes from trusting in the One whose strength is made perfect in your weakness.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, Scripture-focused Bible study November 28, 2010
"Living Victoriously in Difficult Times" is a no homework, 6-week-long Bible study. It's designed for small groups to do together once a week in a 40 minute period. The Bible study pretty much let Scripture speak for itself. It examined the lives of several people in the Bible who suffered (like Job and Paul) and what Scripture says about the reason and purpose of suffering and how we should react to it.

The study had people read several verses (which were included in the book along with information about the context of the verses), mark/highlight certain words, then answer several questions about what was just read. Insight boxes were included with historical information that helped make a verse or point more understandable.

The questions were helpful in focusing attention on all the points that needed to be looked at. In case you missed a point, the "wrap up" section at the end of each week's lesson summarized what was learned that week.

I enjoyed this study and thought it was well-written and made good points. Overall, I'd recommend this Bible study to new Christian believers or those who don't understand why a good God would allow his people to suffer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Biblical Study May 21, 2014
By cook
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am presently halfway through leading a Bible study using Living Victoriously in Difficult Times. I appreciate the structure of the book with the scriptural texts printed at the side margins and the Insight boxes that share information about the texts and the translations from the original languages. One issue, though the study claims to be structured for 40-minute sessions, each chapter contains enough material and questions for discussion to easily take each session over one hour.

This book is part of a series of books designed to be useful for anyone, even those brand new to the Bible. Living victoriously in difficult times guides the reader through relevant Bible passages, allowing them to see God's truth for themselves. We all want to live a victorious life, but tough times can drag us down unless they are handled with the proper perspective. The take home message is that trials will happen in live, but you can emerge victoriously from them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Bible study for singles, couples, or small groups
The Precepts Ministries Bible Studies are the best available. The main reason is that it is Scripture upon Scripture. Not a popular speaker. Not a new technology. Read more
