ECPA 2017 Christian Book of the Year Winner: Biography & Memoir
As trusted pastor Dr. Charles Stanley comes to the later years of his life, he is ready to share his personal story - on a more intimate level than ever before. As he walks us through his ups and downs, he shares how the biblical principles he's taught all his life have affected the way he's actually lived. He looks his readers in the eye and says, This is how my faith has worked for me at the most challenging times of my life and how it has led me to the victories God had in store for me. Dr. Stanley shares how God walked with him through his most difficult days as a pastor when he faced internal conflict in a church he'd led for years. He gently shares painful family issues that brought him to his knees and taught him to look to God for answers when life wasn't simple and trite answers didn't work. Dr. Stanley reminds us that choosing to follow and obey God when life is hard can be both the toughest and best thing we'll ever do. He always comes back to this principle: Do what God says is right and leave the consequences to Him - no matter what that means.
