A short book whose main point is that God is in control over everything that happens in a believer's life including the bad. When we are confronted with the bad things in our lives we should ask God what he wants us to learn from the situation and how good will come out of it.

I was looking for more on this subject. This is really just a little coffee table book.
I love this wonderful book. It's is a very powerful and encouraging resource when going through hard times. I refer back to it over and over. It is also sized to make it easy to carry with you. God Is in Control has been a source of strength when life around me is falling apart.

A solid Biblical book on God's sovereignty and control. I highly recommend any Christian read it to edify one's walk with the Lord.
Dr. Stanley always delivers. God IS in control.
This book is a pretty little book that looks like the kind of book you might get as a gift. But I will say, it gave me serious comfort after my son was stillborn. It isn't just for those who grieve, but it pointed me toward a lot of scripture that really helped me get through the worst nights.
Besides the beautiful pictures, we are blessed with some very Godly wisdom telling us that God is in control of everything in our lives. Romans 8:28 tells us that everything works together for our good. This book expands on that subject.

God has something to teach us from each experience.
This book is awesome. It's just what I needed to hear. The photographs are beautiful. I recommend this book for gifts for friends, family, and even total strangers. This book will be one that I will read more than once.

Awesome book. Well written. When Christians go through tough times, Charles Stanley helps us remember that God Is In Control! He may have to take us through tough times to teach us that. Loved this book so much!!

"God Is in Control" is a book that is worth reading. Undoubtedly, God is truly in control of our lives. Readers will learn a lots from reading this book.
Quick read. A good book to keep on hand when our hearts faint at some of the issues of life (and sometimes they will). God is in Control.
