"To-Read" Book List

About this book:
We all find ourselves living with the harsh reality that 
life is hard and life hurts. 
We continually demand that life be fair, 
yet we’re well aware that it’s not. 

Life can leave you at a loss for words. It has a way of suddenly casting you into the darkness of doubt. In these desperate moments, you find your soul being drained dry . . . you’re empty . . . and faith just doesn’t seem to matter anymore. Faith loses out when you realize that God could have done something . . . and He did nothing. Your life is further emptied when you realize that even if you live the “Christian” life, things don’t always turn out the way you’d like them to . . . and that’s not the way you hoped faith worked. You don’t want God to comfort you in your troubles . . . you want Him to take them from you. 

As God continually frustrates our faith with His constant inconsistency and ridiculously draining unpredictability, we resolve in the truth that He is the only one that truly understands our hurting hearts, empty lives, and searching souls. 

We find the ongoing trials of life continually 
draining us and . . . we’re thirsty. 
Yet, through our endless efforts 
to quench our undying thirst, nothing satisfies. 
Our souls seem to be insatiable, and we know 
we desperately need something to fill us, completely . . . 
but it’s not what we think. 

You’ve been waiting for God to show up, 
yet He’s actually been waiting for you. 
He’s ready to meet with you . . . 
one on one . . . 
at the well. 

 Hope...the Best of Things by Joni Eareckson Tada ($1.99)

About this book:
One thing has saved her: the heaven-sent hope found only in Christ.
If hope is scarce in your life, this special booklet will draw you toward a fresh perspective on suffering, true scriptural encouragement, and this beloved author's hard-won insights about the goodness of God.

In her life's journey Joni has learned to meet suffering on God's terms. She has learned that joy is for real. And most of all, she has learned that hope is the best of things when we give it a chance. This book powerfully communicates all these truths from someone who has lived them, so that you can live them too, no matter what you're going through.
