BISAC – REL030000
He had been subject to a protracted and excruciating life of suffering. He was well aware of the unrelenting persistence of human misery. If anyone had a reason to feel betrayed by God, this man did.
But then he met Jesus.
At Jesus’ command, this man who hasn’t walked for 38 years is suddenly on his feet. But this healing brings many questions. Why this man and not another? Why was he suffering in the first place? And what would this man do now he could walk?
David Helm is Pastor of Holy Trinity Church Hyde Park in Chicago and Chairman of the board of the Charles Simeon Trust. He is also a council member for The Gospel Coalition.
The writing is simple but by no means simplistic; the tone is warm but not sentimental; the gospel call is winsome but never lacking in challenge. I warmly recommend that you buy these books, read them for your own encouragement, and then consider which of the non–Christian people in your life you will give them to.
Publishing Director, Matthias Media
In an increasingly complex and, to some degree, daunting world Dave Helm is a sense–maker. So in each of the areas: Religion, Relationships, Suffering, Truth, Doubt and Hope, you’ll find the echo of your questions and the timeless unpredictable wisdom and rebuke of the Galilean. My plea is that you can make time to engage with what couldn’t be more important.

The church in western society has never had a greater need for books like this to give to inquirers who are open to considering what real Christianity looks like. These six short studies are gems of lucidity. Use them!
