Come what may

A small book with huge content. Comforting, enlightening and boldly written. A great deal of topics are made room for in this short book. It’s stuffed with quotations that leaves the reader in no doubt about the writers capacity for theologically steadfastness. A great tool for pastors and laypeople as well. And a starting point for further reading is firmly established.
Thank you.

You are loved. You are forgiven. You are free to show love to your neighbors.

Faith in the Shadow of a Pandemic was an easy to read book to read and gave me great encouragement and in-site into this Pandemic. I encourage people to read this book. We need to trust in our Lord and Saviour that He is with us always.

Well write, backed with Scripture and doctrine. It gives one plenty to ponder. Clergy and laity, both, would find this a useful resource.
