Full Product Description
'Stumbling Blocks' is born out of real life pain and a realisation of just how fragile faith can be. So many issues can cause you to walk away from God - as so many have. So how do you hold on to God through the deep questions, the pain, broken dreams and disappointment - times when God should be at his most real? Authors Gavin and Anne know the kind of personal suffering that tests faith to the limit. Every day their work brings them into contact with hurting young people. They don't have all the answers, but they show how to meet the questions head-on. That's because they've been through it all themsleves.
Gavin and Anne Calver were never likely to ever have a family. Struggling to conceive they lost a baby and endured one of the most challenging pregnancies imaginable. Even after thirteen blood transfusions - nine of them "in utero", with brain damage and cardiac arrest a real possibility, their second baby had only a five per cent chance of survival. 'Stumbling Blocks' is for when you - like Gavin and Anne, need to know that whatever challenge is in your way walking through it with God will lead you out so much the stronger.
Stumbling Blocks by Anne Calver; Gavin Calver was published by Lion Hudson in July 2012 and is our 20220th best seller. The ISBN for Stumbling Blocks is 9780857212009.

Stumbling BlocksPhelim McIntyre, via The Good Book Stall
While the church has been effective over the years at evangelism, getting people in through the front door via projects like Alpha and Christianity Explored, it has been a lot less effective at ministering to those who drift out through the backdoor due to hurts and confusions. Others remain in the church but only go out of habit due to the hurts and questions crowding out the faith they once had. In Stumbling Blocks, Gavin and Anne Calver attempt to deal with these issues in an honest and open way, talking about their own problems and times when they have stumbled and almost walked away. While no book that tackles this issue can be totally comprehensive this is a useful starting point not only for those who are struggling but also for church leaders who want to help them.
