Description

Whether it's a devastating natural disaster half a world away or a tragic accident involving a beloved family member, we all face troubles, trials, and tragedies every day. How will we respond? When terrorists strike or storms hit or relationships break down, we all search for the same answers: Why? Where is God in all of this? Is God really in control?

Best-selling author Jerry Bridges, one of the most trusted Christian authors of our time, helps you wrestle with these questions in the clear light of the Scriptures. As a result, you can learn to understand and trust God's wisdom, love, and sovereignty in the midst of the little disappointments and the big tragedies. And you can experience comfort and hope by exploring the greater purposes of an all-knowing, all-powerful, all-loving God.

Is God Really In Control?

Tim Challies, Challies.com, January 7th 2006

In short, Bridges affirms the truths that are clearly taught to us in Scripture. He only briefly mentions the errant doctrine of open theism, yet this book stands as a entry-level refutation to that dangerous doctrine.

This book will equip believers to respond in a godly fashion when they encounter the pain, disappointment and frustration that life can bring. It will encourage the believer to trust that God is in control as much today as He was when he laid the foundations of the earth. It will teach some valuable truths of Scripture that need to be reaffirmed in the minds of today’s Christians. I am glad to recommend this book.... continue reading
