Publisher's Summary

When Carol Cymbala says that nothing is impossible for God, she means it. For nearly thirty years she has experienced God's light shining steadily in the heart of a city that has become synonymous with coldness and decay. She has watched in awe as he has mended human beings whose lives seemed beyond help. She has also seen how prayer can be the dynamic tool God uses to solve the worst kind of problems.

In her own life, Carol has overcome enormous fears through the grace of God, enabling her to conduct the 275-member, Grammy Award-winning Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir despite the fact that she doesn't even read music. With remarkable candor she tells us: "The story of my life involves doing the things I dread. But I've done them anyway and have learned an incredible truth: though doing God's will hasn't always been easy, it has always been good. Always better than I imagined, taking me beyond my small plans to God's big plans. Because of his promise and proven faithfulness, I know that nothing is impossible for God."

Admitting that she is a shy person who always prefers being in the background, Carol has let God shape and stretch her life in surprising ways. Sunday after Sunday, as she directs The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, she looks out at a sea of faces, brown, black, and white, amazed at how God has used music to woo all kinds of people to himself: lawyers, nurses, doctors, teachers, crack addicts, prostitutes, and homeless people. He's Been Faithful recounts the awe-inspiring stories of those who have been touched by the Lord through the music of The Brooklyn Tabernacle, as well as the story of Carol's own journey as she has sought to lead believers into an encounter with God through worship. He's Been Faithful highlights what God can do when we decide to trust him despite our fears and inadequacies. The moment we admit our powerlessness is the moment we will begin to see God working most powerfully.

What the Critics Say

"Awe-inspiring....The integrity of her narrative and the way she presents it put Cymbala in a class with Christian writers who straightforwardly tell stories and leave the fireworks to God." (Publishers Weekly)
"Cymbala writes her lessons with verve and effectiveness....It is fascinating." (Library Journal)

    "Unabridged Please"

    I wish the unabridged was available. Great book about God's faithfulness. Will buy the book so I can know the whole story. This also made me want to buy the BTC music.

    "ho-hum"

    Utterly bland and pleasant. There's a few nice stories, but otherwise - forgettable. I'm grateful this was abridged, because I couldn't imagine any more hours of nothingness,
