Off the Shelf 106 – Marge Fenelon
Occasionally a book makes it’s way to me that gives me pause. A book that looks at the faith in a manner that addresses the current divided culture we live in and it brings hope. Join Marge Fenelon and I as we discuss her book 10 Promises of Jesus: Stories and Scripture Reflections about Suffering and Joy. In a world grown cold we need a little joy this year. Marge has chronicled stories that will give you hope!
From the publisher Twenty-Third Publications
This book is a solid dose of hope. Through her own stories and the stories of others who have faced adversity and suffering, Marge Fenelon reminds us that, no matter what, Jesus is always there for us. Jesus understands adversity and suffering because he experienced them himself. And he promised not once, but repeatedly that he will turn our sorrow into joy if we but trust and follow him. From ask and you will receive to I will give you rest, to your hearts will rejoice, and seven more, Fenelon explores what these promises can mean in our lives. No matter what situation you are facing, and how frail your sense of hope has become, this comforting, inspiring book will reassure you that Jesus is waiting to lift you up.
