Songs in the Night: How God Transforms our Pain to Praise by Michael A Milton and published by P&RBooks
Always preach to broken hearts and you will never lack for a congregation, an old saying goes. And for that reason, this book is for everyone because there are many, many things that break our hearts. Sicknesses, spiritual depression, disabilities, painful memories, strained relationships . . . all of these weigh on Christians hearts at one time or another. And even when our hearts feel light, there is a longing that runs through us a crying of the soul for eternity, for a new heaven and a new earth. Yet even in the midst of our heartache, we know there is a faith that comes from Jesus Christ that not only encourages us through our pain, but can even transform our pain . . . as long as we let it.
And here is a collection of warm, pastoral messages, filled with personal illustration, that does just that: helps the broken-hearted Christian to locate the God of all comfort in the center of all pain. We are not left there, either; Mike Milton takes us a step further to see how the gospel actually transforms our private pain into personal praise. So read and discover how God uses the things that seek to destroy us to become the very things that bring us salvation, bring us hope, bring us to prayer, bring us together, and ultimately bring us to heaven.
