I wanted to tell you today about a Bible study that has been released based on my book, Wednesdays Were Pretty Normal: A Boy, Cancer and God. It’s called Faith Limps: Trusting a Good God in a Broken World.
Whereas the book delves into the personal story of our family’s battle with childhood cancer, Faith Limps is intentionally written toward a more general audience. It talks about difficulty and suffering that inevitably enters into any life, and how we might view that kind of difficulty through the lens of faith.
Here’s the description from the back of the leader kit:
Pain, discouragement, and hardship afflict everyone, ravaging your sense of well-being and challenging your assumptions about life. Suffering brings you face-to-face with questions like:
- Where is God?
- Did I do something to deserve this?
- How can I trust a God who let this happen?
- Will life ever be normal again?
The Bible study includes a six session DVD in which I do some teaching on each session, a workbook, and a copy of Wednesdays Were Pretty Normal. My hope is that maybe you will pick up Wednesdays and immediately think of others in your church or community who might benefit from the message, and then be willing to lead a study that details some of the general principles you’ve found there.
