I love the fact that Scott takes the reader from the biblical perspective to a more intimate application of the concept of enduring trials. I love the fact that at the end of each chapter there are discussion questions that are meant to help the reader apply the message of Scott's book more directly to their personal lives.
This book will prove to be a magnificent resource for a small group Bible study, a college textbook, and even a personal devotional. That is one of the things that I really like about Scott as an author; he has a great sense of wisdom and a desire to actually teach his readers something they can relate to.
Scott’s very straight-forward approach to writing and an educational–though encouraging–delivery shows his pastoral background. The book is absolutely chock-full of solid scripture and concise examples to aid the reader through their struggles and trials.
This is an excellent resource, meant to transform the reader’s view on suffering and trials to one of encouragement. It offers undeniable proof that God is 1–in control, 2– seeing our pain, 3- alongside us during our trials, and 4– planning a good end to our trials and suffering. An entire chapter is dedicated to finding the good end God has in mind for our suffering and trials of today.
This is a book that should be highlighted and underlined. There are heavy references to Job, Joseph and other heroes of pain and trials. There are fantastic insights and a particular favorite was this: if we repent and stop a sin(s), that void now must be filled by doing something else. The intention is that one now does something positive to replace the negative (sin) of before. This seems much like saying for every negative action (or sin) that we stop, there is now an equal and positive reaction. That sort of insight causes the reader to pause and contemplate.
There are series of questions at the end of each chapter for the reader to record personal reflections or have a discussion with a small group. This book is a resource that would be fine read alone or as a group study.
Scott LaPierre writes with honesty and truth. He shares important principles and truths found in the Bible, offering a solid foundation for handling difficult times. Scott does not dismiss any suffering as trivial, but shows readers the love and care of the Lord. Trials could break us, but with God's strength and the truth of His Word, we bend but we will not break. Enduring Trials God's Way is more than a recipe, it is the prescription from the Lord that suffering souls need.
I am so glad to very highly recommend Enduring Trials God's Way: A Biblical Recipe for Finding Joy in Suffering. Anyone who reads this book will find strength, comfort, peace and hope even in the darkest of circumstances. Well done!
