Jerry Bridges’ life is a remarkable story of God’s providence. From “a most unpromising beginning” as a poor kid from the wrong side of the tracks, he joined the Navy, went to college, became an engineer, joined The Navigators as a missionary, and eventually became a best-selling author. In this book, Jerry illustrates through his story—and then summarizes for the reader—seven key “spiritual lessons” that God has taught him through his 83 years. These lessons can be passed on to any believer.

It’s easy to trust God when everything is going well. But when adversity strikes—a school shooting, a cancer diagnosis, a financial setback—do you wonder if God cares or if He’s even there at all? In this 31-day devotional, author Jerry Bridges tackles the doctrine of God’s sovereignty. These daily readings set the biblical foundation for the essential goodness of His character. In a clear and warm manner, Bridges explains how you can and should choose to trust God no matter what happens in life.

Recipient of an Honourable Mention in the 2001 God Uses Ink Contest! "Lord, please give me a parking space!" That prayer sounds right on your third time around the block, frustrated and late for an appointment. But is it consistent with how God works in the world? Does prayer change God's mind or only our feelings? Does God do things because we ask him to? Or do we ask him because he prompts us to do so? How much control does God really have in the world, anyway? If he has given us free will, can he always guarantee that things will happen as he intends or wishes? Is our need for parking spaces important enough to bother God, or is he only concerned about things that advance his program of salvation? If God has already decided how things will turn out, what use is it to pray? On the other hand, if our freedom limits God's ability to achieve his wishes all the time, how much could he do even if we asked for help? How much does God know about the future, and how does this factor into the way our prayers affect the outcome? And how does God's relationship to time enter into the whole equation? With such questions in mind, Terrance Tiessen presents ten views of providence and prayer--and then adds an eleventh, his own. He describes each view objectively and then tackles the question, If this is the way God works in the world, how then should we pray? The result of his investigation is a book that puts us at the intersection between theological reflection and our life and conversation with God. It prods and sharpens our understanding, making us better theologians and better prayers.

Life was bleak for Naomi. Her husband was dead, as were her sons. She found herself in a foreign land with only one friend-her daughter-in-law Ruth. But as she returned to her hometown of Bethlehem, a ray of divine hope broke through the dark clouds of providence. It was the barley harvest, and she wasn't alone. This cycle of poems by John Piper tells the story of God's care for Naomi and the love affair between Ruth and Boaz through the eyes of their son, an aged Obed, as he narrates the account to his eight-year-old grandson David, the future king of Israel. Through this creative work, readers will walk with Boaz from promise to fulfillment, with Ruth from widowhood to motherhood, and with Naomi from death to life.

In the spiritual life, we need a central idea: something so basic and comprehensive that it encompasses everything else. According to Carmelite Father Wilfrid Stinissen, surrender to God, abandonment to the One who loves us completely, is that central reality. The life of Jesus shows us the centrality of abandonment, for it is truly the beginning and the end of his mission on earth. In this simple but profound book, Father Stinissen distinguishes three degrees or stages in abandonment. The first stage consists of accepting and assenting to God's will as it manifests itself in all circumstances of life. The second is actively doing God's will at every moment of one's life. In the third stage, abandonment to God is so complete that one has become a tool in God's hands. At this stage it is no longer I who do God's will, but God who accomplishes his will through me.

Rich in the social upheaval of the communist revolution in Eastern Europe, Uncommon Providence is a first hand, journaled account of a young minister and his wife who dare to continue serving their community. Removed from their home in Southern Ukraine, the young minister is exiled to work in forced labor. His wife follows to live nearer him. After a year in hard labor, a harrowing escape from Stalins grip initiates an odyssey of survival under extreme circumstances. Taken from the handwritten and just recently translated journal of Jacob Dck, Uncommon Providence chronicles the incredible journey of a young couples escape in 1931 from Soviet Russia. With little more than an unwavering faith in Gods providence, Jacob, his wife Anna, and daughter make a dangerous border crossing into China. Walking hundreds of miles through the harshest and remotest of terrain, their trek across desert and mountain ranges, including the formidable Himalaya Mountains, finally ushers freedom for them in India. Uncommon Providence is a story of unquestioning love and devotion to faith and family. Despite all the odds]despite all the obstacles before them, social, political, and geographical, wondrously Jacob and Anna find a purposeful life of ministry in India. Uncommon Providence is a vivid narration from Jacobs handwritten journals, letters, and audiotapes of an epic journey. The bold escape is a powerful, true account matched with unusual courage and providential care. Born of missionary parents, Harold Dueck spent his childhood years in India. After graduating from Kodaikanal High School, he attended Tabor College in Kansas. Following graduation he and his new bride taught at an international school in Cali, Colombia. After completing graduate studies at Oregon State University, his young family settled in Los Gatos, California. Harold Dueck taught mathematics and computer science over a period of forty years. He and his wife presently reside in Auburn, California.
