Every day real people face struggles and hardships; author Joel Chinapen is no stranger to life's obstacles, having dealt with them on a daily basis through a steadfast faith in God. In My Faith Looks up to Thee (paperback, 978-1-60477-421-4), the author testifies of his encounter with God through a real-life miracle, declares that all life holds a promise because it is a gift from God and shouldn't be destroyed, shares personal experiences to illustrate the controversial "black and white" issues, and encourages his readers to love one another since we have but one Maker who loves us all. Finally, he presents a blueprint for youths who desire to succeed by focusing on the importance of obedience and family life.
After reading this book, Chinapen believes readers will be inspired and motivated to overcome some of life's major problems with endurance, faith, hope, and courage. Says the author, "People generally take life for granted. My book will help them to understand that life is gift from God and if we trust in him, He will help us to overcome the difficulties that prevent us from enjoying life to the fullest. Faith makes everything possible."
A teacher and a pastor, Chinapen brings to his book an unparalleled sensitivity to the issues of life. As he examines the answers to some of life's harrowing situations in the Bible, honestly illustrating God's intervention in human affairs, readers will be amazed to see how the obstacles they are experiencing now can relate to biblical teachings. "Faith is the key factor, and the issues expressed in my book can be related to those experienced by people in biblical times," the author explains. "They overcame because of faith."
