Chip Ingram, president and teaching pastor for Living On The Edge, reveals how you can meet God in the midst of your most difficult circumstances. This is a topic near and dear to Chip’s heart, as he strives to spur Christians to a deeper, more authentic walk and talk with God. Candidly coming to grips with some of life’s most challenging, discouraging, and humbling situations, and providing personal anecdotes to let you know that he, too, has “been there,” Chip opens up the Scriptures to find G ...more
The teachings found in this one are timeless and ever-relevant. The teachings are drawn from Psalms, so perhaps that isn't a big surprise. The specific Psalms taught in Finding God When You Need Him Most are Psalm 73, Psalm 23, Psalm 139, Psalm 77, Psalm 46, Psalm 51, and Psalm 90. Each chapter is straight-forward and reader-friendly. I love how each chapter is organized. Some are organized by life lessons, others by steps, etc. These lessons are built around Scripture. I also found it helpful t ...more

Recommends it for: everyone!
Mr. Ingram not only teaches through his own experiences, but then parallels his experiences with scriptures to show us how, no matter what we are going through, there is an answer in the Word. To know that God is always here and for us to look to the Word for proof and comfort in times of need, question, or doubt.
Rex Libris
The author Chip Ingram is a pastor, and he outlines God's message for people in various times of turmoil and trouble that one might encounter in his or her life. Th topics are when youget a raw deal, times of crisis, when you feel like a nobody going nowhere, depression, fearful, when you have blown it big time, and confusion.

Ingram generally uses a Psalm to explain how to meet God in these times, and what God's promises are for you when you are in these ways. A nice, insightful book on living t
I had bought this book and put it away without reading it, two months later I finally decided to read it. That evening I opened this book to read it, i found myself in tears because I could relate to what was shared in it. It's like God set aside the perfect time for me to read it. This by far number one on my list of christian reads.

What wonderful encouragement

What wonderful encouragement

I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants encouragement through life's trials. The author brings a fresh perspective to our lives using God's word in a truly outstanding way.
Sam Corbin
Just finished reading this book. For me, the best part was how he explained the 23rd psalm and told why it was worded the way it was. Really gave me a new understanding of it. The book would be invaluable to someone who is in a spiritual crisis.
I loved that Chip Ingram incorporated the Psalms in this book. He points you to the Psalms so one can apply the teaching to their life. He also encourages readers to develop a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. I definitely recommend this book.
Kelly Derse

“When you and I have to move forward and make important, life-changing decisions, how do we know what to choose? What’s right? What’s wrong? What’s true? Whom should we marry? What job should we take? Should we get involved in this or not? That’s when you and I need to claim God’s promise that he will lead and direct us as clearly as he did David. Notice that he leads us in the right path for “his name’s sake.” God is more committed to revealing his will to us than we are to following it. I assure you that if you will come to the place where you are honestly willing to do whatever God directs you to do, he will show you what to do 100 percent of the time (Ps. 32:8).” 0 likes
