Choosing hope in the midst of faith-shattering circumstances. Foreword by Joni Earekson Tada.
Why is God letting this happen to me?
There is perhaps no greater challenge to one’s faith than personal suffering. For pastor Ed Underwood this challenge came in the form of chronic leukaemia. Though he prayed for and believed in God’s healing, as the days slipped by and his pain became unbearable Ed’s heart was broken by a simple realization: The God who could do anything was not helping him. Yet a revelation from God’s Word changed his heart and life forever.
This is a poignant journey from tragedy to hope. Ed takes a fresh look at the story of Lazarus and his sisters Mary and Martha – a story that explores suffering through the eyes of our Lord and His people. Readers will find comfort during difficulty, be inspired to ask for the impossible, and discover a God whose heart breaks with theirs.
Ed Underwood is the pastor of the historic Church of the Open Door, a ministry dedicated to helping people fulfil their purpose in life. He is a graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary and has served as an officer in the U.S. Army and a firefighter for the U.S. Forest Service. Ed and his family reside in Southern California.
