In a world of hype, where more and more Christians are buying into the idea that, through Jesus, they'll be healthier, wealthier, and wiser, where do they turn when they become ill, or depressed, or bankrupt? In A Place for Weakness, award-winning author, magazine editor, and radio talk-show host Michael Horton exposes the pop culture that sells Jesus like a product for health and happiness, reminding Christians that their lives often lead to difficult routes they must follow by faith.
As a child, Horton would run up the down escalator, trying to beat it to the top. Christians, he notes, sometimes seek God the same way, believing they can climb to him under their own steam. This book offers a series of powerful readings that demonstrate how, through every type of earthly difficulty, God keeps his promises from Scripture and works all things together for good. Formerly titled Too Good to Be True.
