Book Review: The Call to Joy and Pain by Fernando


I really enjoyed this book. One may think joy cannot be found in pain but this book helps work you through that process by exploring Colossians and the life of Paul and Jesus. It also walks you through contemporary examples of people walking this kind of lifestyle out. It is encouraging to be surrounded by "a great cloud of witnesses" while reading this book.

The art of walking worthy of your calling takes encouragement. This book helps you in that. It is written in such a way where you could read one selection a day and just ponder it. Each selection is like a gospel saturated devotional that is good for any person. All who read this should come away encouraged in Christ.

I came away encouraged in my walk with Christ knowing suffering is just part of it but in that suffering is growth not only for me but also those that God has placed in my life to watch. We are made to live in community and it is important to suffer together for His glory as much as it is important to celebrate victories together for His glory.

I received a copy of this book at no charge from the publisher Crossway for the purpose of an honest review.

You can get a copy of this book from here.
