The Christian life is good—really good. It's a life of forgiveness and freedom and fellowship and joy. But the Christian life can also be genuinely hard. Sickness and suffering still come our way. Sinful habits from the past still dog our steps. Sometimes it feels like an endless grind. Why is this? Is it meant to be this way? Is there any solution? In this masterful little book, John Chapman answers these pressing questions by drawing on his profound knowledge of the Bible, and his 60 years experience living as a Christian.
