Finding God in the Darkness
Life can hurt…deeply. Don’t we all know it. But who do we turn to in such times of darkness and adversity? It might be times of sorrow, bereavement, fear, anxiety or depression.
Irene Howat has gathered for us these twelve highly personal accounts tell of disabling illness, marital betrayal, a child murdered, a spouse imprisoned, difficult working situations and loneliness. All of these people in their difficult days have felt the hand of God, who is faithful and true to his Word and His people, rest upon them.
“I think there’s a kind of ‘undertow’ one feels when reading through this book; one feels caught by a quiet assurance that all we’ve heard about God’s strong grace is true.”
— Dale Ralph Davis, respected author and pastor, Woodland Presbyterian Church, Hattiesburg, Mississippi
“In her unusually sensitive way, Irene Howat has gathered together twelve honest, moving experiences of ordinary men and women who have walked in the shadows of life and have felt the reassuring hand of the Man from Galilee.”
— Kenny McDonald
