Popular pastor and rising evangelical star Chad Veach comes alongside readers facing pain, loss, or crushed dreams to take them on a journey toward a deeper understanding of God and irrepressible hope.
Insignificant concerns bring us down every day. That’s part of being human. But at some point, most of us will also experience a taste of the bitterest, most unfathomable pain that a fallen world can dish out. Yet these horrible moments—when you want to look up to the heavens and scream—are the very moments when you can learn the most about our loving God.
Chad and Julia Veach are the pastors of Zoe LA. In 2010, their daughter was diagnosed with a rare brain disorder, lissencephaly, which would probably kill her before she was ten and would fill their home with seizures and sickness in the meantime. And yet, this was the moment when a compassionate God became the most real.
Unreasonable Hope is not a book about a sad little girl with a brain disorder. It’s not a book about a pastor’s struggle to cope with pain. It’s not about bitterness, panic, depression, or fear. Unreasonable Hope is about Jesus Christ, the provider and protector, the one who is with us in the midst of every storm.
Do we know the purpose of every struggle and hardship? No. But that doesn’t mean we can’t find him through it all.
