Curveball When Your Faith Takes Turns You Never Saw Coming book cover

"World tragedies, devastating personal losses, the incomprehensible vastness of the universe next to the fragility of our planet—there's no preparing for the inevitable curveballs blowing past us from all angles. We're often left doubting God, the Bible, our faith, and even oursleves.

Many Christian traditions see these crises as problems that need to be overcome. But rather than denounce our reservations, the Bible models how we need to face them and wrestle with them. God wants us to question, because doing so actually leads us to building a stronger, more resilient faith."
