Honest Wrestling

We usually don't have the opportunity to walk out someone's faith with them. For most, their deepest struggles in life are kept between them and the God that their pain has caused them to question. Most people of faith fear that allowing others to see them doubting through difficult times will somehow cast their faith into deeper despair. But K. Howard Joslin has taken that risk. He's reaching out to the hurting through "Honest Wrestling" to allow the glory of God to be shown in the darkest of circumstances. As if his own surprising health issue and raising four children were not enough of a challenge, tragedy strikes in the form of his wife's rare cancer.

As a student in seminary, working towards a doctorate, K. Howard Joslin would probably expect to be able to answer the tough questions when it comes to faith; but you'll find him in the match of his life with a God who is well aware of his wife's unbelievable battle with a rare cancer. And there are no easy answers . . . mostly, there are no answers at all. Not unlike Job, Joslin finds himself truly questioning the God of the universe, and you will be blessed by taking the journey with him. He asks the questions that we all do in pain and suffering, and through his "honest wrestling" you'll experience the resolve that comes through trusting God completely.

If you're hurting or in desperate need of healing, you'll find "Honest Wrestling" a blessing in countless ways. You'll be glad you walked through this family's faith with them, because when you're finished reading this book, you'll unexpectedly realize that they have strengthened your own.
