Suffering. You’re either in it, or you will be! Richly biblical, Scott LaPierre’s latest book reveals a gracious pastor’s heart, compassionately equipping people for trials. Every believer needs this book!
Everywhere we look there are extreme circumstances: hurrricanes, fires, earthquakes, diseases, economic challenges, political turmoil, and the list goes on. I truly believe Scott has written a book “for such a time as this.” This is one of the best biblical treatments on the difficult subject of suffering that I have come across. Packed with encouragement from the Holy Scriptures, Pastor Scott carefully lifts up the wonderful sovereignty of God in suffering and the cross of Christ during trials to help the reader develop the blessing of an eternal perspective. Every believer needs this volume in their library. I wholeheartedly recommend Enduring Trials God’s Way!
Enduring Trials God’s Way: A Biblical Recipe for Finding Joy in Suffering by Scott LaPierre is an insightful and uplifting book that will help readers understand the ways of God better and realize that He always works in our best interests. Reading this book will help you develop a spiritual perspective that is needed for embracing trials, appreciating the maturity that trials produce, understanding the rewards in this life and the next for enduring trials, learning how to persevere through trials instead of abandoning the faith, and recognizing that God is always compassionate and gracious, even when we’re suffering.
I found Enduring Trials God’s Way to be profound, encouraging, and comforting. It will give readers hope. The book is a reminder of the power and presence of God in everyone’s lives. Readers will be given the faith and confidence that God is there to see them through suffering. Pastor Scott’s book will also help readers develop the strength to face struggles in their lives with resilience. Enduring Trials God’s Way is good to use in devotional groups, Bible studies, and home fellowships. This book will help readers see God and suffering in a biblical way. Everyone goes through trials in life and the author’s experiences and writing make it easy for readers to make changes so that they can lead enriching and fulfilling lives.
If this book is one thing, it’s biblical. Again and again, Enduring Trials God’s Way points us back to some aspect of what God says about trials. I didn’t do a formal analysis, but I’m guessing that nearly every paragraph contains some reference to scripture, with many really digging into the text. Scott gets into the Greek or Hebrew (original) text, but in a practical way that shows what God originally intended us to learn. On many other occasions, Scott’s careful attention to the passage helped me discover things I had missed before. Or, were different than what I had assumed. (As a seminary-trained pastor, that doesn’t happen every day, so it really stood out.)
Enduring Trials God’s Way is powerful and direct. You never have to wonder what Scott is trying to say, which gives his applications a sharp point. While the book is often straightforward and direct, it’s not lacking in compassion. As a pastor and someone who has been through his own trials, Scott understands what it’s like to be human. It’s filled with great application questions. If you’re anything like me, you may find yourself reading a book and then not taking action. To help us reflect and apply what the bible says about trials, Scott ends each chapter with several great application questions. Answering and praying through them is incredibly valuable.
