Sensitive Answers to Troubling Questions

“Even When Bad Things Happen, God is Good – Trusting God When it Hurts the Most” is a combination; theological treatise, an inspiration devotional guide, a motivational case study, and a spiritual discipline handbook. Readers can expect to receive insights from Leary Bonnett’s teaching that will embolden and stretch them in their faith journey.

Bonnett provides thought provoking, step by step. Rich and meaningful lessons and guidance on building character traits of : humility, hope, faith, patience, and love while developing spiritual discipline, and putting faith into action using examples, and principles rooted in God’s Word. These lessons are authenticated by his personal life and ministry.

I was challenged by Bonnett’s , Biblical authenticity,  articulate communication style, his  intellect, and credibility. I appreciated his careful detail in research and formatting , his descriptive word pictures, relevant examples and illustrations, and the continuity of his presentation

The thought reflection questions presented at the end of each chapter are designed to be used for personal mediation, spiritual mentoring, or as a small group discussion study guide.

“Even When Bad Things Happen, God is Good” is an excellent resource for Pastors, Counselors, and Laymen ministering to individuals and families who are facing crisis and difficult times.

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.
