Spiritual Casualties: A Loving Outreach to Hurting Christians And A Call to Action for the Church
It is easy to have faith when all is going well. It is easy to trust God when you have a great job, a great marriage, good health and sound finances. It is very easy to lift your hands and sing God's praises when life is beautiful. It can, however, be quite difficult to trust God when severe trials enter your life. It can make it hard to sing his praises when waves of adversity bring you to the brink of despair. It can seem especially bad when those around you seem to be enjoying life and have things going their way, especially when you see unbelievers with happy homes, good health, and great careers. It is when severe trials come and our faith is tested to the breaking point that we must remember that "... we know in all things that God works for the good of those who love him, who are called according to his purpose". (Rom 8.28) There is a hidden realm in which spiritual warfare is being waged by the forces of evil in the heavenly realms (Ephesians 6.12). This book lays out an explanation of spiritual warfare and gives Biblical evidence showing that even people of God can suffer long and painful trials. It also gives reasons for hope, both now and in eternity to come. The author also issues a call to the Body of Christ to come to the aid of hurting Christians and offers suggestions on who can be part of the healing and how to approach the subject. If you are hurting, you are invited you to journey through this book to find healing and hope from God's word. If you are a Christian with a heart for those who are hurting, you are also invited to journey through this book and try to discern what ministry God may have for you.
