Overview


If your foundation is faulty, how will you stand?
We live in a “feel-good” culture. Somehow in a world where emotions were meant to enhance our lives we’ve allowed them to dominate. What’s more, we’re told that if we don’t follow our feelings we’re not being authentic. It is no wonder that this attitude follows us into our churches. As a result, when problems arise or good things don't happen as we expect, we question our faith, wondering why God doesn’t care.
 
Resilient explores the watered-down, feel-good ways the Christian faith is often presented that result in a shaky foundation. Sharing the real-life struggle he experienced when his oldest daughter, Hannah, almost died during a plane crash that claimed the lives of four of her friends, Ron Luce shows you how to:
 
·          Train yourself for endurance rather than just strength
·          Build your confidence in God when you don’t understand
·          Develop a resilient faith that will get you through the good and the bad

    How many times have I told someone I didn't know what they were

    How many times have I told someone I didn't know what they were going through, but Jesus does? Ron Luce speaks with authority as having his resilience tested and tried. But Resilient is not about the author. It's about you! In it you will find the profound truths of finishing well for God. Ron strips away the veneer of many modern Christian forms to reveal true Christianity and discipleship. Resilient is Basic Christianity 101 presented in gripping form, and should be a required course for all serious students of Christian living.
