Finding God in the Darkness: Twelve Accounts of God's Care Through Difficult Times
Howat, Irene; Davis, Dale Ralph (Introduction)
"One after another, they share how God spoke to them through their regular reading of his Word, as particular verses of Scripture took on a new reality for them. A lesson to us all perhaps, that it is the habits of listening to God established in our everyday routines that enable us to hear his voice clearly when we are greatest need."See All
"In her usual sensitive way, Irene Howat has gathered together twelve honest, moving experiences of ordinary men and women who have walked in the shadows of life and have felt the reassuring hand of the Man of Galilee."See All
from the foreword
"I think there is a kind of 'undertow' one feels when reading through this book; one feels caught by a quiet assurance that all we've heard about God's strong grace is true."See All

Life can hurt deeply! But who do we turn to in such times of darkness and adversity? It might be times of sorrow, bereavement, fear, anxiety or depression. These twelve highly personal accounts tell of disabling illness, marital betrayal, a child murdered, a spouse imprisoned, difficult working situations and loneliness. All of these people in their difficult days have felt the hand of God, who is faithful and true to his Word and His people, rest upon them.
