Format: Paperback
In the typical Tony Evans style this book breaks down the Bible so anyone can understand it. I drew the following keys learnings from this book:

1) Believe God will do what He says He will do when you find yourself between a rock and a hard place. It's much easier to relax when you know God's promises and that He will fulfil what He has written in His Word. Jer 29:11
2) There is importance in continuining to Worship God during these trials. Communion is a time to put everything before the Lord and reconnect with Him. Don't miss out on this important spiritual act.
3) Mark 6 tells us that we can be in a storm but still in the Will of God. This was key for me. I know many Christian's can fall into a belief that because we honor God with our lives He will make the way smooth but this is not true.
4) The last paragraph on page 94 was eye opening as well. In the darkest hours Jesus is there, open your eyes and look for Him.
5) The key to the whole book hit me on Page 104. Dr Evans quotes Matthew 14:27 "Take courage, it is I, do not be afraid." Dr Evans says "He [Jesus] sees the internal storm, and calms them with His Word." So the next time I find myself between a rock and a hard place I will cling to this verse and know that in the midst of storm that Jesus is with me and I will not be afraid! Amen!

As Christians we are going to have problems and find outselves in difficult situations. This book really tells you how God thinks and will help you to see these trials as blessings meant to further God's kingdom. And as Christians that is all we should ever want.

I enjoy listening to Dr. Evans' radio program, the Urban Alternative, because I appreciate his ability to take the densely packed truth found in the Bible and break it down into ideas, action steps and hope for what God is doing in my life and in the lives of the people I love most. When I heard about Between a Rock and a Hard Place, I was excited to dig into what Dr. Evans had committed to the page. Between a Rock and a Hard Place is written in a conversational style so I read it very quickly, but the real treasure came when I stopped to consider the questions at the ends of the chapters and prayed for clarity in my own life. Dr. and Mrs. Evans describe a time when they themselves were praying for clarity and God provided it through a conversation with a good friend. Is it time for you to pray for clarity on how to proceed in an area or a decision in your life?

I appreciate this book on several levels and plan to keep thinking and praying through the ideas presented. It has earned the right to sit on my book shelf to be revisited throughout the decisions to come in my life. After reading this book, I have several passages of the Bible that I want to spend more time studying and reaching a deeper understanding. This book, combined with Dan Miller's 48 Days to the Work You Love: Preparing for the New Normal and Zig Ziglar's

When we are met with problems we identify as unsolvable, it is hard for us to see beyond the obstacle. Pastor Evans clearly and simply identifies that everything is for the glory of God, and does so through his awesome style of telling it like it is and giving the reader/listener the means to really put themselves into the story he's telling. Everything He allows us to go through makes the bonds of your relationship with Him even stronger. This book is highly recommended for everyone out there who faces difficult and trying times in their lives, but feel helpless as to how to go through them.

I found this book and its study to bring such understanding in my heart with regards to present day living. To see that Jesus is on top or our worlds problems and that they are under His feet was very encouraging. We are in constant decision about to look up when things got us trapped. Yes, nothing does separate us from God. As we are living on stormy seas of life, Jesus still walks on water and is there to rescue us. I loved this book and I will read it again,.

Dr. Evans' insight into the "hard places" in life and what they can reveal is awesome. Using biblical examples he reveals how our trials and circumstances can lead us to experience God in way we never have before. Prepare your heart because this is a life changing book!

Tony Evans nails it again!! I've highlighted something on every page. Now I'm going back to read again. If you're stuck in a situation with no Godly way out this author gives you a new perspective. VERY HELPFUL!!! "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

After reading this book, I keep coming back to "Remove the Stone."

Dr. Evans has a way of writing that draws the reader in. He also makes you feel he is sitting right next to you. This is an excellent book for anyone between a rock and a hard place. He really shows you how God uses these times to strengthen our faith and deepen our relationship with Him.

I would recommend this book to anyone asking themselves, "Why am I having to go through this trial?" Dr. Evans has clear answers and biblical teachings to help us understand the "why" of our situations.
