Believers often encounter trials that make them wonder if God has forgotten them; in this book’s formulation, the trials that test one’s faith also strengthen it. Stephens (The Mountains Are Calling) knows from personal experience what it’s like to feel forgotten by God. Writing as a seasoned tour guide of life, Stephens takes readers on a journey through the trials he has encountered over the years. Not only does he incorporate verses and stories from the Bible, but he also cites theologians to support his claims. Stephens writes with the authority of a scholar, but does so in a style that speaks to a general audience. His writing seems sincere as he makes the case that God is always here, always working, and always faithful. The book’s sometimes lighthearted, often introspective journey ends with questions for readers’ reflection, organized by chapter.
VERDICT Highly recommended for readers who are seeking reassurance of God’s presence in their lives. Stephens’s latest work, in its substance and delivery, compares to books by Mark Hamilton or Max Lucado.
