This is a timely book on perseverance. The author deals with various aspects of perseverance including difficulty involving loss, everyday endurance, and perseverance as a lifestyle to name a few. I really appreciated the chapter on moral courage. One of the thoughts included the statement, “When we have a why we can endure almost any how. Survival in suffering is rooted in our ability to find meaning in something beyond ourselves.” As Christians our courage begins with God, it proceeds forward in obedience and is finished in God’s glory. Our lives as Christians are rooted in the glory of God. God’s glory can also mean vision, something we see as we connect to God. But it is more than that, it is God’s incomprehensible identity, His rule over all the universe, and His completeness in in Himself. It is the power of God Himself through Jesus Christ that gives us the courage to persevere.
This is an encouraging book for all Christians as they will encounter various situations in which they will need to persevere. I would highly recommend this book.
I received this book from Moody Publishers in exchange for this honest review.
