5.0 out of 5 stars An Everlasting Promise August 26, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When bad things happen, how can it be for our good? Christians have miscarriages, lose loved ones, suffer broken hearts, and suffer abuse. How can we trust God's promise during our darkest nights?

Can God always be trusted? Can we believe that everything, no matter awful, is really for our good?

This book takes you on a journey through the scriptures that affirm this promise. God doesn't just give this promise once, but repeats it over and over because He means it. Additionally, this book offers up testimonies of others who have been through some of the worst experiences we can imagine and come out on the other side with proof of His faithfulness.

If you are going through, or have gone through, a hard time, you can find healing & comfort here.

By Dianna
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
An excellent book!! This is one of the best books I read this year...It grabbed a hold of my heart so much that I wanted to share this Truth with others...
God doesn't promise "some" things to work out - but "ALL" things to work together for the good for those who love Him!!

That's a promise you can rest on!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Promise December 8, 2011
By Terri
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The verse never leaves my thoughts throughout the day--it has helped me get through every situation I have encountered since finishing "The Promise"----I love the book and go back and read parts as reference. It doesn't take the place of Gods Holy Word--The Bible but it sure has helped me to understand one of God's promises a lot better. Thank you. Teresa

5.0 out of 5 stars Eye Opening--A great find! September 22, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wow! For a while, this was free for Kindle. I downloaded it for that reason, never having heard of it. Then I began reading it and I was so happy I did! I've learned so much! It is eye opening and is really helping me to understand why bad things can happen and how when some things happen that we perceive as a tragedy or negative, there is a domino effect which often leads to something absolutely good according to HIS plan. Romans 8:28 is now popping into my head all day. I feel like I've had an epiphany after reading this excellent book. It's so fast reading and the language is so down-to-earth. I love how it is organized and how the author explains his point using so many real life examples of famous people/Christians and just regular people who have been through things that seem so so unfair, but in hindsight, they turned out to be a blessing. Please read this book and pick up copies for your friends. You won't be sorry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Encouraging and Challenging April 2, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was surprised that someone could write a full-length book (210 pages) about one verse of Scripture, and I expected that it might be tedious reading. Based on a friend's recommendation, however, I began, and immediately, I was thankful I did. In fact, I began underlining even before the table of contents!

This book is encouraging because it focuses attention on God's infinite love for us and His sovereign power engaged on our behalf. It is also challenging because it reminds us that such love calls for a response of trust and reciprocated love.

The Promise is divided into two parts. The first covers each phrase in Romans 8:28, exploring in depth the richness of this promise. The second part briefly covers six other places in Scripture that echo the promise of Romans 8:28--either in living testimony or in a verse. These chapters are especially encouraging as they reveal just how God makes things work together for good and just what kinds of good He has in mind.

"The Promise" reminds readers that Romans 8:28 is far more than an "emergency verse." It is a description of the daily reality of what God is doing in our lives all the time. After reading this book, I'm more thankful than ever before for God's incredible promise contained in this verse and reiterated all throughout the Bible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Something to Hold Onto September 2, 2011
By Jan
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I downloaded The Promise on my Kindle less than a week ago and have devoured it since then. I would recommend this book for anyone going through tough times or wanting to increase their faith and walk with the Lord. Just today, I've received such sad news. Clinging to the promise of Romans 8:28 will help me and mine through it. Thank you, Pastor Morgan, for writing this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars The True Promise December 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Nothing short of outstanding! Many books give trite encouragement in their writings-the author, pastor Morgan gives countless examples of why you should be encouraged regardless of the circumstances by the unending promises of God throughout the Bible. If you have ever been discouraged by what life throws at you, that will turn around after reading this book. And, more importantly, you will be steered in the direction of the true source of everlasting joy through reading God's Word.
