Publisher's Summary

Whether we're dealing with suffering, temptation, sin, grief, or persecution, it’s easy to feel alone in our troubles. But the reality is that everyone experiences trouble at some point, and we have a Father in heaven who promises to always be with us.
In this honest and encouraging book, Phil Ryken offers hope and practical examples from his own life, the lives of major characters from the Bible, and Jesus himself to show us that we're never alone in our pain. Though suffering is normal and affliction is to be expected, Christians can put their hope in God - our very present help in times of trouble.

Honest and Helpful

The struggle is real. In his new book, Phil Ryken's is willing to be honest about his struggles yet without excusing sin. And he shares biblical insights and good practical ideas for how to fight and endure in times of trouble.

Phil Ryken writes with candor (sharing his own recent struggles with depression, insight (making familiar bible stories fresh and relevant) and wit (this book is serious in its subject matter but does it take itself too seriously). It's often fun to read (listen to) because of the personal examples and great quotes.

I am planning to buy a copy for myself just so I can have the quotes. I am also ordering a few copies to give to my pastor (whose three-year-old daughter is struggling with cancer), the new principal at my kids school (so it's clear that we are not expecting him to pretend his life is perfect but that it's OK to share his struggles), and a friend who is struggling with depression. Phil Ryken's honesty and helpful advice will benefit them all, as it has benefited me. Highly recommended!
