This book combines an encouraging autobiography with lots of information on creation, evolution and apologetics. Mr. Kerby is a great teacher who really does take the time to answer the questions of anyone who asks. You won't regret taking the time to read this.

Inside the pages of "REASONS for HOPE: In the MOSAIC of Your Life" the reader is met with the embodiment of 1 Peter 3:15 "But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be ready to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect," (NIV)

Carl Kerby has allowed the reader to join him in looking at the broken pieces of his past life, and how God has worked a beautiful mosaic out of the rubble. The inscription just past the title page reads "To those who don't have hope and need to be given it & to those who do have hope and need to share it." What a fitting introduction to a book written to give hope to all of us through what God can accomplish in our messed up lives. The book is divided into three parts which each have subtitles of their own, but which I think of as 1. Why 2. The Past and 3. Now, How?

"Offering REASONS FOR HOPE in a Hopeless World" is the actual subtitle of part one. For those who have heard Carl speak, some of this will be review. In this section Carl shares some of the Biblical examples of physical things the nation of Israel used as reminders pointing them back to what God had done for them. (Such as Joshua chapter 4.) We are also reminded that Jesus wanted His disciples to be world changers and that to do this effectively we need to be able to "give basic answers for your faith." Carl plainly states his reason for writing: "I want to both challenge you and encourage you. I'm a fellow pilgrim on this journey of faith." Besides these exhortations, Carl answers many other `Why' questions with to-the-point answers.

Loved this book! Encouraged me to be bold and share God's truth with others by sharing about my tainted past. Stuggled in the past with being transparent about things in my past and not sharing (worrying what others might think), in the past 2 weeks I have shared with 5 people and have been blessed in doing so. Reading his thoughts on evolution and looking at the web site for Answers in Genesis I now am "Sold Out" for Creation. God would not want to confuse us, so why not take the Bible for what it says: after all it was God breathed. There are so many great things in this book that I could not tell all of them, so get it and read it!

"But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect."
1 Peter 3:15

"In a mosaic, the artist arranges pieces of cut or broken stones or tiles to create a decorative pattern. We may struggle to grasp the overall design of a mosaic when we're looking at the individual peices up close, because what we see looks like a piece of junk, broken and useless. But when we step back far enough to view the entire mosaic, we get a new perspective, and we see the intricate beauty of the finished masterpiece. That enables us to grasp the original intent of the artist," explains Carl Kerby, author of Reasons For Hope In The Mosaic Of Your Life.

Carl is president and founder of Reasons for Hope, founded in 2011 as a response to a calling from God to proclaim the authority and authenticity of the Bible. He was previously a founding board member at Answers in Genesis for ten years and served there for over fifteen years. Before he worked as an air-traffic controller at O'Hare International Airport.

Kerby's love for Jesus fuels a passion to engage the minds and hearts of youth and adults so that they can know the truth of God's Word. He is a sought after speaker both in the United States and abroad. Yet his most cherished accomplishment is his 29 year marriage to his wife, Masami, and his roles as father to his children, Alisa and Carl Jr. and grandfather to Trey.

Sometimes the broken pieces of each our lives is there for a purpose. If would could share with people that times that God had used those circumstances to come into our life and make us better individuals and help us grow through our spiritual trials, we should be share those with people we come into contact with daily. Using those times of brokenness to connect with what God has done for each of us in our life.

This is what God had in mind for all those storms and trials in our lives. Those of us that weather through them can honestly say, we know what its like and we've been there and made it out the other side. Not only that, but here is what I personally learned by going through it. In the book, Reasons for Hope: In the Mosaic of Your Life by Carl Kerby, he shows people how we can get through life through sharing our trials with others. It helps show people what God's purpose is in our lives and how we can use that as a way to bring others to God. I received this book compliments of B & B Media Group for my honest opinion and think the author creates a fresh perspective on just how can witness to others through our personal pain. He shares his own struggles of being a son of professional wrestler and then trying to find his own way in life when so many doors seem to close. I rate this one a 5 out of 5 stars in my opinion and find his stories very related to what we encounter in life.

"Life is not always picture-perfect, and sometimes it is difficult to see God's plan or purpose--especially during difficult times. Reasons for Hope: In the Mosaic of Your Life, by sought-after speaker Carl Kerby, researches the many aspects of faith that will encourage everyone looking for hope in today's troubling times.
