From the Back Cover
Adversity is hard to endure and can even be harder to understand. If God were really in control, why would He allow the tragic auto accident or crucial job loss? How could He permit cancer in a loved one or the death of a child? Grappling with His concern for us we ask, “Why is God allowing this?” or “What have I done wrong?”
In an effort to strengthen his own trust in God during a time of adversity, Jerry Bridges began a lengthy Bible study on the topic of God’s sovereignty. What he learned changed his life, and he now shares the fruit of that study with you in Trusting God. As you begin to explore the scope of God’s power over nations, nature, and the detailed lives of individuals, you’ll begin to acknowledge His loving control. And as you come to know Him better, you’ll find yourself trusting Him more completely—even when life hurts.

My favorite part of this book was its tone. The whole book feels like a humble, wise Pastor who has faithfully walked with God sharing his heart. If I wanted a theology of trusting God I'd grab a Systematic Theology. Through stories, Biblical examples, and sound theology Jerry walked my through and into his walk of faith. He doesn't try to stretch beyond himself to answer the problem of evil; Jerry just walks us into trusting God. This book felt like it was mentor speaking into my life.
While the narration was nothing special, and I found it was redeemed by two things. First, it fit the author, who is a gentle man. That is to say John Haag hit the right tone for the book, he doesn't breath life that isn't in the book itself. Second, because of that it felt natural, sweet, and gentle. I found myself listening even more intently because I wanted to hear the wisdom of a man I respect.
I would also note, like Jerry does, that this book is aimed at those who aren't necessarily struggling right now, but laying a foundation for faithful living right now.
Jerry's encouragement to trust the love of God today was the encouragement I'll leave with the strongest. I'll be recommending this book to several friends, it takes humility to value another's life, experience and wisdom, but to him who has ears to hear, let him hear.
