Description

“I want to believe, I want to have hope, but...” Pastor and best-selling author Craig Groeschel hears these words often and has asked them himself. We want to know God, feel his presence, and trust that he hears our prayers, but in the midst of great pain, we may wonder if he really cares about us. Even when we have both hope and hurt, sometimes it’s the hurt that shouts the loudest. Can God be good when life is not?

In Hope in the Dark, Groeschel explores the story of the father who brought his demon-possessed son to Jesus, saying, “I believe! Help my unbelief!” In the man’s sincere plea, Jesus heard the tension in the man’s battle-scarred heart. He healed not only the boy but the father, too, driving out the hopelessness that had overtaken him. He can do the same for us today.

As Groeschel shares his pain surrounding the current health challenges of his daughter, he acknowledges the questions we may ask in our own deepest pain: “Where was God when I was being abused?” “Why was my child born with a disability?” “Why did the cancer come back?” “Why are all my friends married and I’m alone?” He invites us to wrestle with such questions as we ask God to honor our faith and heal our unbelief.

In the middle of your profound pain, you long for authentic words of understanding and hope. You long to know that even in overwhelming reality, you can still believe that God is good. Rediscover a faith in the character, power, and presence of God. Even in the questions. Even now.

Reflection questions are available through the audiobook companion PDF download.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Just what I needed in a difficult season

my thanks to the ultimate author of my life who brought this book into my life just when I needed it most it has definitely given me hope in the dark that I will again see the Light of God’s love shining in my life and it has reminded me that just because I cannot see the light of God right now does not mean that it is not there if I but open my eyes I will be able to see abundant evidence of his love all around me Thank you God and thank you Craig Groschel for allowing God to use you to reach me and countless others may I one day soon be as willing and brave as you

Hope filled!

So many times we lose hope and wonder where God is in all that is going on. Craig compassionately communicates that we can hope in God regardless of what happens. But he doesn't say that flippantly but as one who has and is living through difficult times. The reader also expresses that very well in the telling of this hopeful book.

A much needed read.

I am at a point in my life where i'm in a valley. This has helped me strengthen my life with the lord. It's not a easy listen, but it will help you if you're struggling.

Amazing read for anyone struggling with hope!

Brings so much to light and to the forefront of struggling with faith. Seeing the struggle clearly and understanding everyone gets there is so important, and from there how to move through the dark towards hope again

Worth the read

This book was so helpful with me dealing with my sons diagnosis. It’s hard not to have questions and struggle when you’re in the valley but this book was helpful.

Such Powerful Ideas

We have all doubted God’s goodness when things go terribly wrong. And we usually feel guilty for doubting His goodness, like we should just “stuff” our hurt. Craig Groschel addresses this problem very well.
This reader does a great job.
