Disappointment is a feeling everyone knows well - failed relationships, buyer's remorse, unmet expectations. In a broken world disappointment surrounds us, but Christians know that Jesus will never disappoint us, right? Wrong. John Koessler explains how Jesus disappoints everyone. He never fails, but he does disappoint.


We come to Jesus with false expectations, demanding or expecting things he doesn't promise and then when he doesn't deliver we are disappointed by Him.&But Koessler explains how this can be the best thing for us even though it doesn't feel good. He describes how this sort of disappointment takes our wrong expectations and sets them straight, bringing us closer to Jesus and into a deeper understanding of his very surprising grace. &&&


This book is a wonderful resource for people struggling with life's hard times as well as for counselors or pastors seeking to help others.
