You lost your job. Your son ran away. A loved one just died from cancer. Your best friend is getting a divorce. The list is endless.
Adversity is a reality that no one can avoid. Everyone asks why when adversity strikes. Yet Dr. 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?'"
How to Handle Adversity helps you learn to
- Ask the right questions about adversity
- Become a comfort to others
- Rediscover the faithfulness of God
- Deal with pride and weakness
- Look at adversity from God's perspective
- Glorify God in your adversity
If you are a child of God whose heart's desire is to see God glorified through you, adversity will not put you down for the count. There will be those initial moments of shock and confusion. But the man or woman who has God's perspective on this life and the life to come will always emerge victorious! ?Charles Stanley

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
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
Dr Stanley is truly a minister of God ---explaining in depth how to handle adversity and why it comes to each of us.
