Book Review: Unreasonable Hope

Title: Unreasonable Hope - Finding Faith in the God Who Brings Purpose to Your Pain

Author: Chad Veach


Summary:

Where was God when ____? 
How could God allow ____?
Why?

These are the questions that flood our hearts and minds when the unimaginable happens. When things go horribly wrong and the world seems to be unraveling, how do you believe in God’s goodness? How do you cling to hope?

Chad Veach directs readers away from clichéd Sunday school answers that fail to offer real comfort or provide faith-building insights. Instead, he draws from God’s promises in the Bible and from the story of his own daughter’s diagnosis of a devastating and debilitating disease to reveal simple, purposeful steps for dealing with pain. 

Resting in God’s love, remembering his past faithfulness, and realizing the distinction between having faith and clinging to hope are just some of these steps.

Veach reminds us that because we know who God is, we know there is hope.



My Reaction:
This novel is am intimate reflection of Chad Veach and his family's struggle with accepting their lot in life - relying on God and having Hope in a trying time. 

What a great reminder of God's goodness daily.

I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers <http://booklookbloggers.com> book review bloggers program. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
