Most people see trouble as something negative and seek to avoid it whenever possible. But what if it's those troubles that actually lead to greater blessing and purpose? In The Blessing of Adversity, a retired U.S. Navy admiral and the 62nd chaplain of the U.S. Senate distills the wisdom gained from thirty years as a counselor, theologian, and psychologist. Barry Black offers a blueprint for removing the sting of life's trials, showing us how to let God use our pain for his glory by blessing othersand how that can actually help heal our own pain. Drawing on Scripture and his own experiences as a counselor and chaplain to some of the most powerful people in the world, Black teaches us how to deal with seasons of God's apparent silence, offers techniques for staying encouraged in the middle of life's storms, and shows how to find advantages in adversity.
