Since being diagnosed with incurable cancer, Jeremy Marshall has been known for his ability to connect the difficulties that Christians face in this life with the deep-seated joy that is found in knowing the Lord Jesus.
Hope in the Face of Suffering — his first devotional, based upon his ‘Lift Up Your Hearts’ GAFCON broadcasts — offers twenty inspirational messages for tough times.
Jeremy helps readers apply the principles he has learned through his own experience of dealing with terminal cancer. He holds out the message of hope in the Bible — the medicine cabinet where we can find treatment for our suffering — and meditates on God’s promises, which are like a rock upon which we can stand secure.
As with Jeremy's previous book, this has been written in a way that is not only helpful for Christians but is also accessible for our non-Christian friends.
"All of us will face suffering at some point in our lives. In this brilliant and candid devotional guide, Jeremy draws on his experience of an incurable cancer diagnoses to journey through the Bible with us. He offers 20 daily readings. What an encouragement to face up to fear and encounter Christ through his word. I highly recommend this as a practical resource in times of difficulty whatever you may be going through." - Dr Amy Orr-Ewing, President, OCCA The Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics
