Stronger: How Hard Times Reveal God’s Greatest Power: by- Clayton King Forward by- Mark Batterson (ISBN-9780801016844)
When we think of success, we think of words like bigger, more, and better. Bigger paycheck, more security, better reputation. But what if God’s perspective on success was radically different than our own? What if the things we seek to avoid–pain, suffering, weakness, insecurity–were the very things he used to mold us into his image?
With insights born from his own difficult journey, Clayton King offers readers a truly liberating understanding of weakness and suffering–not as God’s punishment, but as his pruning. Revealing the God who is a companion in our most difficult seasons, King shows us that when we are in Christ, our deepest pain becomes the source of our greatest power, and our times of testing become our strongest testimony. Anyone who struggles to make sense of seemingly hopeless situations will find in this book not only hope for a brighter future but purpose in their imperfect present.
