Today, book club is a little different. We are discussion Chapters 7 and 8 from Facing Danger: A Guide Through Risk by Dr Anna E Hampton. When it came time for me to write the post, my left arm was numb from so much typing. Being discerning as Dr. Anna advocates, I decided not to type today, but share my thoughts in a short seven minute video. If you are reading this in an email, you can watch the video here, otherwise, you can watch by clicking the video you see on the website.
“Most books on suffering jump immediately to how God will act after the risk is taken and how he will help a person through suffering. God’s emotions are almost never addressed, and commonly there is a narrow focus on doctrinal truth. However, emotions felt by God are mentioned considerably more times in the Old Testament than concepts about God.”
This quote is going to stay with me. I love this and I’m going to be looking for it as I read in the OT.
What would you like to discuss? Either from the video or what you read.
See you in the comments!
P.S. Next week Kimberlee Conway Ireton will be here. The second week in November we will discuss Chapters 9 and 10.
