Stronger: How Hard Times Reveal God’s Greatest Power by Clayton King is for:
- Anyone who wants to know Christ
- Anyone who has given their lives to Christ
- Anyone who has prayed in the name of Jesus to use them according to His will
- Anyone who is following Christ with their whole heart and also going through the toughest times of their lives
The author of Stronger, Clayton King, deserves much praise for his honesty and real-to-life words. He pulls no punches and lets you in to see some of his innermost thoughts, feelings, and pain. I personally know how extremely difficult this is to do. Yet Clayton does, and the reader is much better off for it.
This book came at a perfect time in my life, and spoke volumes to me. I am questioning why I am going through such hard times right now, and why it feels so relentless and never ending. This book opened my mind and heart to the possibility that as the author states for himself, “Jesus was inviting me to join Him on a journey. He was inviting me to walk with Him in a relationship in which I would feel fantastic joy, elation, severe suffering, and real weakness”. And then my next question was, “But why do I have to go through SO much suffering and weakness?” Clayton tackles and answers that question too…
To the author, Clayton King, thank you for writing Stronger. Before I was even finished this book, I had the opportunity to minister to a friend who is twice my age. She’s had a life of hardship, and was asking the question “why?” to me. She trusts my response because she knows that I too have been through very hard times. I was able to use words from your book, plus the words “I understand”, without sounding like I was just trying to give advice. I’ve been there and I have deep scars, she knew that, and Clayton you are right, it’s powerful to help someone in that way.
I am grateful to have received a copy of this book, free of charge, in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.
