good message

I enjoyed the book but the reader was distracting with his almost computer-like voice.

Read Job first or again.

A very well written book on understanding the important of trusting God and allowing the Holy Spirit to interpret scripture. Great application of the life of Job.

More than I Hoped For

Excellent book that relates sufferings to both world today and Scriptures. Excellent questions, scenarios that most of us ask. Must read/listen!

Brilliant!

God’s word through Derek Prince has touched my heart. His eloquence and method of teaching is so important, now more than ever! The battle between good and evil has existed since the beginning of time but it is so prevalent now. I am truly grateful that I can now listen to Derek’s books through Audible.

Necessary literature for present times

In the world we are living in, as children of God we question why bad things happen. We really consider these things when living for the Most High God and it can disturb our peace. Derek Prince reminds us through the Word of God… There is nothing we will face that the Lord has not given us a blueprint to navigate with His help.
Things will happen but out mindset and relationship with God will determine the impact of these things. Everything we need is found in Him and He is our ultimate strength and protection in periods of great pain.

Wonderful

This book gave me a great insight into Job from the Old Testament. The book also gave me a part understanding of why bad things happen to good people.
