The Fellowship of the Suffering
How Hardship Shapes Us for Ministry and Mission
by Paul Borthwick and Dave Ripper
Pub Date 15 May 2018
I am reviewing a copy of The Fellowship of The Suffering through Intervarsity Press and Netgalley:
This book reminds us that following Jesus does not mean that we will not have pain, because we will. It comes with following Christ, we may face struggles, hardships because we walk with Christ or we experience suffering because we live in a fallen world. Either way we as Christians follow in the footsteps of our suffering Savior and participate in his suffering.
The good news is suffering is not the whole story, we are shown how personal pain allows us to minister to a hurting world. Paul Borthwick and Dave Ripper openly share their own struggles in this book.
I give The Fellowship of The Suffering five out of five stars!
