Overview

The loss of a job. A rebellious child. A loved one dies. A dear friend has been diagnosed with cancer. A struggling marriage. Financial hardships.

The list is endless. When hard times come, we need wisdom to navigate through the shoals of adversity into a safe harbor. And now, in How to Handle Adversity, Charles Stanley offers a practical, biblical approach to help us deal with the troubles common to us all.

Adversity is a reality that no one can avoid. Everyone asks why when adversity strikes. Yet Stanley contends, "As much as we all want to know the answer to the why question, it is really not the most significant question. The real question each of us needs to ask is, 'How should I respond?'"

I read this book over a dozen years ago. Since that time, I have given it to many others, and my hardback copy has become very 'experienced'. The perspective that I look at everything has changed since the day I picked up this book. Everyone goes through 'Stuff' in their lives. This book will help you deal with that 'stuff'. From the small things to big ones.

Everyone seems to know how to tell us the best way to handle troubles these days. Charles Stanley knows how to tell us the Scriptural way, and truly writes from the heart of God. Frankly, this book is only matched by the Joseph story in learning how God wants us to handle adversity. 'With Joseph in the University of Adversity' is one of the best on this. Both this, and the Joseph book speak to us from the heart, and not from the lofty heights of pedantic scholarship. Dr. Stanley is loved by nearly everyone. His unique in insight into surviving adversity will only add to his followers! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
