Postcards from the Edge
Full Product Description
God often seems most distant when we are going through our hardest times. And yet many people have found that it is exactly at the moments of their greatest struggle that they have met God most closely.
Through vivid retellings of the stories of eight biblical characters who met God at points of extremity in their lives, Ian Coffey offers us inspirational ways of making the struggles we face an opportunity for growth. By sharing both modern examples of people who have faced the same sorts of struggles, and events in his own life, he gives us practical help and hope in our hardest moments.
Esther & courage
Jeremiah & inadequacy
John & doubt
Paul & fear
Peter & imprisonment
Ruth & loss
Elijah & despair
Mark & failure
Full of rich reflection and thought-provoking questions, it will help us to discover the God who walks with his people through their darkest moments.

Postcards From The EdgeMelanie Carroll, via The Good Book Stall
'Postcards from the Edge' is a fantastic book that works as a personal read, a personal bible study or as a group bible study.
It blends good, easy to read, commentary style studies of 8 biblical characters blended with a strong subject they best reflect in their lives... so we have for example Ruth and Loss, Jeremiah and Inadequacy, Paul and Fear, PEter and Impisonment etc.
What is so good about these studies though is that they don't stay just with the bible character although that is the main focus, they also look at a modern equivalent to help highlight the subject values, so for instance you have Jeremiah with Frodo! Ruth is compared with an ordinary woman called Jill who founded 3 children's hospices, Paul is compared with Maurice Chevalier! These comparison stories at the end of the chapters just highlight the subject really well ... and can also be used as great story pieces on their own in a number of settings, maybe assemblies or such.
A very good book that works in a number of ways succesfully.
