Tywebbin virtual Book Tour: Treasures in the Darkness
Private pain can become public victory.
The strongest believer’s faith can be shaken when faced with tragedy or even disappointment. Bishop Larry Brandon faced this himself when his oldest son, Brandon, was killed. Here he shares his own struggle, pain, and eventual victory in Christ. While it appeared to the world that he was doing well, inside his heart and faith were broken. Only someone who has faced the subtle crumbling and nagging doubts can speak with authority to the pain that readers face in such dark times.
Treasures in the Darkness also turns to the scripture to show how people like Abram, Sarai, David and others who loved God stumbled when their faith was put to the test. Through the text, the reader will gain spiritual understanding to help stay in faith while getting practical tools to help deal with and overcome private pain, whatever it may be. Treasures in the Darkness covers topics such as how to avoid masking one's pain, how to deal with frustration, assumption and presumption, coming through the grief process (the root of private pain), seeing our situation through the eyes of faith, discovering the "hidden treasure" in our pain, and more.
