Anne Trippe’s new book, The Purpose of Trials and Adversity, ($12.99, paperback, 9781498481588; $6.99, e-book, 9781498481595) helps believers understand and be encouraged in knowing, that they can experience God’s awesome purposes and promises as a result of His allowing difficult times to come into their lives. This encouraging book was based on the author’s many years of counseling hurting individuals and couples, in addition to facing adversities in her own life. She shows how God’s very calling for His followers is an important part of the trials each person may face. Truths include living from one’s identity in Christ and His indwelling power in the face of hard times – being transformed by the renewing of one’s mind to the attitude of Christ during challenging situations. In the book, clever illustrations are provided as to what this might resemble in the context of trials and adversities. Also addressed is the reasoning of the world system vs. the mindset of Christ as a person walks through trials. Readers will gain insight into God’s awesome purposes for them as they persevere through hard times.
“Readers will discover that learning to respond correctly to adversity includes a “paradox” – an enigma to the world system,” states the author. “This paradox is a picture of God Himself. They will see that His purposes for us are actually woven into and worked out of the trials and adversities in the lives of His people – a divine design. Experiencing and exposing Christ’s Life that dwells in believers is a main theme in the book.”
Anne Trippe is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a licensed Professional Counselor. She was on Staff at First Baptist Church Atlanta for 21 years. She explains that this book evolved from her years of facilitating counseling sessions and from personal experience. It became evident to Anne that believers are often angry, discouraged and puzzled about why a good God who saved his children by His Grace and promised good things, would allow hard, unfair and painful trials in life. Anne observed these people experiencing their freedom in Christ and partaking of His awesome promises when they learned to respond to hard times by God’s Truths that are presented in this book. Anne is also the proud author of Marriage! The Journey, Old Beliefs vs New Beliefs, A Model For Marriage Counseling, Understanding Your Journey to Freedom and Understanding Your Journey to Freedom in Marriage.
