Jesus Among Other Gods
This book is softcover and only about 190 pages of text. Zacharias grew up in India, tried to commit suicide but was spared, and through that experience he came to Christ. The book answers such questions as “Is God the source of my suffering?” as well as “the anatomy of faith and the quest for reason.” It is a very readable work that you’ll find encouraging.
The Very Rev. Curtis I. Crenshaw, Th.D.
Philip Yancey’s Where Is God When It Hurts? is one of the most encouraging books that I have ever read, especially the chapter 2 on pain as God’s gift. Then he has such chapters as “What Is God Trying to Tell us?”, “Why Are We Here?”, and several chapters regarding how people respond to suffering. I do not recommend Yancey for every book he’s written, but this one is a gem.
The Very Rev Dr Curtis I. Crenshaw, Th.D.
This was my second book. The book is about trials, afflictions, problems that we all have, such as relationships, money, career, job, health, death of a loved one, and just normal day to day problems. Over the years we’ve published a hard copy, and we’ve received many calls, emails, and letters thanking us for this work.
Thomas Boston was a Presbyterian minister in the 1700s who had many afflictions so he wrote this took as a comfort to himself as well as to others. Dr. Crenshaw has had a major affliction each decade of his 66 years, so about 23 years ago he rewrote this work in modern English and rearranged it completely, adding modern example and illustrations. (Thus, it is now copyrighted.)
