Publisher's Summary

Sometimes it's as if the life we've been seeking has managed to elude us. We wake up and ask ourselves, "Is this what life is all about?" Life has not turned out exactly the way we expected or hoped. We were promised certain things, by parents, culture, by church, and, as Christians believe, by Christ himself. Were we lied to? Did we misunderstand the promises? Scripture actually tells us the truth: that life is hidden, not always obvious.

This book shares one pastor's story of walking through such disappointment and the principles of hope he learned. Along the way, we explore the nature of the hidden life and where to find it, and embracing the incredible GIFT of God. (Grace, Identity, Faith, and Training) At least once in their life everyone thinks they are a failure. Through the counseling and conferences of the last 20 years, I have been able to see people who were stuck in their past, mired in their failures, or simply run out of steam, catch a fresh take on life and find confidence of the God they'd always been hoping existed; a God who truly loves them and needs no cajoling to bless. Hope can transform burden to freedom, despair to faith. Such faith and hope can turn one's eyes back to a God who does save and redeem and to the revelation of the hidden life.

    "Insightful book from a leader on a journey"
    What did you love best about The Hidden Life?

    The author hasn't arrived at all the answers, but shares helpful insights he's learning along the way. He writes logically and shares solid theology from an intellectual (but not academic or dry) point of view.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Hidden Life?

    He shared some great illustrations...I've already shared the one about receiving a gift of two elephants. You'll have to read to know the context.


    What about Randy Whitlow’s performance did you like?

    The reader is friendly and extremely easy to listen to. In the best of ways, his voice shares the story so well that it's never the focus. As an Audible.com fan, I can't think of a reader I'd rather hear.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Thoughts from a pastor hitting his stride


    Any additional comments?

    Wonderful book...I'm thankful for the Audible.com format as it made it easy to hear and digest.
