In a fallen world filled with conflict, uncertainty, sorrow, death, and disease God’s people often face suffering. God’s Word in both Old and New Testaments offers hope. That hope comes through direct teaching, instructions, and commands as well as through multiple examples from the lives of saints who have lived long before us. Steve Swarz’s Strength in the River: Lessons in Hope from Suffering Saints of the Bible brings to light valuable lessons derived from the Scripture accounts of Jeremiah, James, Jesus, Abraham, Ruth, Paul, David, Peter, Elijah, Job, Eve, Heman, Joseph, and Hannah. Readers will not only find personal encouragement and comfort from this volume, but will want to give it to friends and family going through their own pains and trials.
