Amazing amazing AMAZING!! If you are in a trial, whether it be health, financial, relationship, or whatever, you need to read this book! I have been blown away by the revelation knowledge and enlightenment that I have been receiving from the Holy Spirit! Maybe its the timing of the trial I am in but this feels like the best book I have ever read!
This profoundly impacting book by Bob Sorge has completely turned my "thinking" upside down... or should I say, right side up! I have been slowly reading these pages for about a year now. There is entirely too much "meat" for a quick read... therefore, a book review is quite difficult to complete. Suffice it to say, if you find yourself in a season of "waiting," if your dreams are unrealized, if you're struggling to understand WHY our Father intentionally walks us through times of waiting... the ...more
This was such a difficult book for me to read because I so longed for the be-happy-love-Jesus books that had previously nurtured me spiritually. This book, however, addressed the fact that life sometimes sucks by God's design. I picked this book up several times because it came highly recommended by a good friend, but I absolutely could not get through it while I was on a "spiritual high."

This book along with 3 others was left to me by a dear lady called Carmen when she died some years ago. It is an eye opener! A perspective on unanswered prayers and delayed answers that is biblical without being patronising. It pulls no punches as it takes you on a journey which is a learning curve of practicality, and comprehension of biblical truth not many of us will come across in the things we are formally taught as Christians about prayer and waiting on God.
This book was awesome. I highly recommend it... to those who are going through suffering or even those who have yet to experience intense suffering. He provides such a balanced, Biblical approach, as nearly every page of this book has some Biblical content on it! I love a book that asks hard questions and doesn't shy away or try to give fake answers.
I initially gave this a 4 star rating and then revised it to a 3 star rating. The last few chapters were a little bit too sanctimonious for me. However overall, I believe that the book has been very helpful to me in finding out why God may delay his answers to prayer.
This is the most balanced view of suffering you are ever likely to read. If you believe that God is still working in the same ways that He did in the New Testament but wonder why you haven't seen answers to your own prayers, this book will be of great help.
