Ok, its not the most exciting looking cover I've ever seen, but the nice folks at Hatchette Books are allowing me to give away five copies of this book. I haven't gotten my copy yet, but here is what the publisher has to say about it:
Father Williams explores the most common obstacles that prevent people from trusting God, including personal betrayals, unfulfilled expectations, and seemingly unanswered prayers. He then explains what is reasonable to expect from God and offers practical tips for ways to grow in trust.
Williams is becoming a revered voice in the Christian community for his insightful writings on issues that really matter to Christians. In this new book, Father Williams will help readers understand, not only how to trust God in spite of doubts and confusion, but to truly know God can be trusted.
