Where is God when one of us gets a bad report from the doctor? How can we best echo back to one another the confident testimonies of Psalm 13?Where is God when a marriage breaks under the stress of unemployment? One of the hardest challenges I’ve faced is finding God in loss. It definitely didn't seem like this book was written to young urban Christians. The Spirit Tony and I went through this book before we got married.
However, my now-fiance and I did have some very meaningful conversations that were provoked by the book, some of them even inspired by how poorly the authors had covered some of the subjects.
So, I'd give the book itself a rather low rating..I'll bump up because I actually think that, in a perhaps unintended way, the book accomplished exactly what it was supposed to do for us.

I like the format: about two pages of daily reading for Monday through Friday, then 6-10 questions to discuss on Saturday. Definitely very inspiring, convicting, and helpful. May however be geared more towards those new to their faith.
I didn't like the content of all of the daily messages - some of it was great, some of it was boring, and some of it I just didn't agree with. None the less it was very eye opening in a couple areas to me and each weeks study seemed to be quite relevant to the events in my life.
— Psalm 13:1 There are benefits to pastoral ministry. The promises of Scripture fade in the agony of sorrow. We trust in God, not because we always feel the wonder of his divine presence, but because there is truly no one else to turn to but God.
