Author's book chronicles the power of God's loving healing

In J. D. Jenkins' new release from Christian self-publisher Xulon Press, God, It Just Isn't Fair! Or Is It? (paperback) Ben Chambers embarks on an emotional journey after the recent loss of his best friend in a tragic accident and is torn between grief, anger, and even the possibility of losing his faith. This book encompasses the rollercoaster ride of emotions, the struggles and the inner battles of maintaining one's faith in the face of adversity. It stresses that life and the good contained therein are far larger and more wonderful than just the here and now, and that God is always willing to shower us with His love.

Says Jenkins, "It is my hope that people will feel they know the characters and that they can relate to what is going on in their lives. I hope my readers will be able to feel the emotions, visualize and see the world as it unfolds in the pages of the book, and rejoice with the character in the end so they will let go of their own pain and let God's loving healing begin."

A union carpenter Sunday school teacher who is active in his church and community, Jenkins says that times are hard and people are crying out for help in many ways. The author was once at a similar place in his life, but he says, "I have known both good times and bad, I have loved and lost, my faith has been put to the test, and I am still here, loving God." He believes that if the principles within his book are implemented, they still stand as a testimony to show we can dream big.

J. D. Jenkins currently resides in Trenton, Illinois.
