What is meant by a ‘frowning providence’? Is this something we are to experience in the Christian life? If so, how do we cope with it?
Sorrow and suffering are unavoidable facts of life. but in our modern society they are so deeply feared that few of us ever think or talk seriously about them. Occasionally we may see someone show great faith in the face of severe trials, and yet never ask how that faith comes about.
Behind a Frowning Providence talks openly about these things. It shows why faith is able to triumph in the face of all obstacles: it is focused on God’s character and his promises to his people.
John J. Murray writes out of his years of experience as a Christian minister and counsellor, using the wisdom of God’s Word to give guidance and direction. But Behind a Frowning Providence also bears the marks of a precious stone, quarried from the deep and dark places of the author’s own experience of pain and sorrow. It speaks to the mind, giving wise counsel; it also speaks to the heart, and brings a message of encouragement which points to the way of true peace.
I’ve been a pastor for nearly 40 years. This booklet will now be my standard, pastoral give away to suffering saints. It is brief but packed with rich biblical, practical, pastoral wisdom. Highly recommended.
This is such an excellent book on God’s providence though they are in our eyes bad situations and painful experiences. Yet God uses them for our good, because He loves us and knows us and designed them for us for our benefit. I can highly recommend it to anyone who needs encouragement in time of difficulties.
If you know someone afflicted with intense trials, give them this booklet. Superb counsel and care.
