Book Review - TRANSFORMED BY TOUGH TIMES by Steve Reed

Product Details
Are you in the midst of a troubling time and wondering where God's blessings have gone? Well, Author Steve Reed has been there a time or two himself. His answer? What he calls the "suffering clause" of Christianity, John 16:33, "These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world."

Way too many Christians seem to think God's blessings are all happy, sweet, cheery. It's not that way all the time. Many times, what makes us grow are the times when we cry or hurt or stand amazed at being abandoned by the very people we counted on.

Yet we find ourselves transformed not so much by the joyous times as by the times that stretched our faith. The message should be that God's grace will carry us where we can't walk on our own.

Perhaps Mr. Reed's book is best summarized by the song printed in the last chapter, Blessings by Laura Story. Listen to it HERE.

You can buy the Kindle version of this book from Amazon.

  1. This sounds like a good book. I can so relate. Sometimes our "christian" mentality is that we live for God and He blesses us, but then when something we consider "bad" happens to us or God doesn't come through, our faith is completely shaken. Thanks for giveaway. (If I win (LOL) I hope you can get me without me posting my email directly on here) If not I am in Ginny's launch team :-)
