The work of God’s Kingdom is never easy. For many ministries, crisis and chaos may seem like faithful companions. Facing the tension of this work is always challenging and it can be difficult to recognize God’s presence when the going gets tough. Stories of perseverance in the face of great adversity pepper the Bible and show us that God is with us in our endeavors, every step of the way. The two newest books in the Transformative Word series show us how God guides his people through trials and persecution, delivering them—and us—from destruction.
