In a world of hype, we may buy into the idea that, through Jesus, we'll be healthier, wealthier, and wiser. So what happens when we become ill, or depressed or bankrupt? Did we do something wrong? Has God abandoned us?
As a child, Michael Horton would run up the down escalator, trying to beat it to the top. As Christians, he noted, we sometimes seek God in the same way, believing we can climb to him under our own steam. We can't, which is why we are blessed that Jesus descends to us, especially during times of trial.
In A Place for Weakness, Horton exposes the pop-culture mentality that sells Jesus like a product for health and happiness, and he reminds us that our lives often lead to difficult routes we must follow by faith. This book offers a series of powerful readings demonstrating how, through every type of earthly difficulty, our Father keeps His promises from Scripture and works all things together for our good.
