With echoes of the Last Supper this book is based around John 21 with the risen Jesus eating with his disciples. The book examines the reality of faith and what it means to truly believe and trust in that which we cannot see, even when the going gets tough. Be encouraged as Jeff talks honestly about his struggles with doubt and depression.
We are invited to share in the author’s anguish as he admits how he sometimes struggles with the day to day walk of faith and wrestles with doubts about prayers which appear not only to be unanswered but at times even unheard. Jeff also talks about the guilt and shame that so often seem to afflict Christians who find themselves unable to recapture the excitement and enthusiasm that they experienced when first coming to faith.
Whilst this book won’t make you feel instantly better, it will likely make you feel less alone and more able to cope with the feelings of doubt and despair that we often find so hard to admit to, and which can in turn make us feel guilty and rob us of the joy of our salvation.
Jeff Lucas is a writer who is always very honest and real about life and this book is definitely worth reading.
