Even in the dark - God is there With "Hope in the Dark" the senior pastor of Life.Church Craig Groeschel presents a book for spiritual growth that is aimed toward those who are struggling with God because of life's challenges and for those who are willing to be at the side of somebody who is struggling. The book is divided in three parts ("Hide and Seek", Lost and Found", and "Hope and Glory"). Every chapter in these parts is started with a quote that relates to the topic treated, e.g. for Chapter 2.3 Wait, he uses a quote from Peter Marshall. "Teach us, O Lord, the disciplines of patience, for to wait is often harder than to work." Groeschel finishes the book with a conclusion and with reflections that take the reader back to the Bible and to the corresponding chapter in his book. In providing questions he challenges the reader to relate the content of the book and the Bible text to the own life. In the book Groeschel deals with the conviction of many people that God is good when life is not good. He presents personal examples of peoples' struggles even from his own life. He shares the pain of many readers because of the health issues of his daughter and combines his writing with a biblical foundation. This he takes especially from the prophet Habakuk. Groeschel shows that there is no guarantee that life is good and without problems, challenges, sickness, struggles, ... even when one is a Christian. This would be false biblical teaching. He also shows with biblical examples (Job, Jeremiah) that we can come with our struggles to God and encourages the reader to write it down when we hear from God. Groeschel hopes that the reader does not give up to believe in God when hard things happen. I have appreciated the book very much because there have been situations in my life when "God seemed to be silent". I highly recommend this book for everyone who is dealing with life's struggles and wants to learn more about the fact that God is still there. The complimentary copy of this book was provided by the publisher through NetGalley free of charge. I was under no obligation to offer a positive review.
