From the front page…

When our surroundings become chaotic and perilous, we often focus on what we perceive that God isn’t doing for us. Like these disciples, we lose sight of the bigger picture. All they could see was that their Master and Teacher wasn’t affirming their concerns or helping them bail water. But Jesus knew they needed to see and understand something far greater.

From inside the cover…

Sometimes, Christians still struggle with selective listening in reading the promises of God’s deliverance. Christ’s redemptive work in our behalf is often described as a rescue, from “the kingdom of darkness” (Colossians 1:13), and from “this present evil age” (Galatians 1:4), and from “the coming wrath” (1 Thessalonians 1:10). Sometimes God’s promise to provide a “way of escape” from temptation (1 Corinthians 10:13) is over simplified, to the idea that God will make things easy for his children. However, the way of escape provided by God may call for enduring hardship, or going through terrific trials, perhaps even facing death.
