About this product
- DescriptionWednesdays were pretty rmal, writes Michael Kelley, looking for a bright spot amidst the chemotherapy routine brought on by his two-year-old son Joshua's cancer diagsis. His book of the same name offers much to anyone who's tired of prescriptive spirituality and would rather ackwledge and work through the difficulties of faith with some transparency.
Joshua battled and beat the disease, but t before his family had to reconcile what it means to believe in God despite a broken world. His dad's personal account of that fight to survive sparks a larger discussion of how Christians must learn to walk in the light of Christ's promises despite the dark shadows of earthly pain. Indeed, it's pain that sometimes opens the door to a deeper experience with Jesus, an authentic relationship that holds steady even when life loses the comfort of rmalcy.
Get ready to go on a remarkable journey . . . Faith is more than a gift we're given; it's a tool we must exercise and use in order to experience its supernatural power. Michael Kelley poignantly illustrates the process of turning faith from a un to a verb and how it can transform and shape our ability to persevere. Everyone needs to read this book.
Pete Wilson, author of Plan B
I sat down to skim this and instead read every word start to finish. Reader, please listen to me: If you have ever suffered, struggled, doubted, wrestled with a God who allows hunger and disease and two-year-old boys to get cancer, if you have attempted to believe God in the midst of devastation or fear, please devour this book like the gift it is. Thank you, Michael, for t only honestly sharing your story with us but drawing us deeper into the true, rich, genuine love of Jesus who cries with us, stays by us, and redeems us.
Jen Hatmaker, author of 7

Margaret Feinberg, author of Scouting the Divine and Hungry for God
A huge man and a tiny child walk hand in hand through these pages, then right out of the book and into your heart. Read it for your own edification, if you wish! But be alert, there are other parents you may t have ticed, who grieve quietly and are much afraid . . . They need this book.
Calvin Miller, author of The Singer trilogy
In the midst of a battle wants to face, Michael wrestled issues about God and faith and the difficulty of life that most of us will in some way. Honest, heart breaking but beating loudly with hope, Wednesdays were pretty rmal is a beautiful book.

Michael points back to a God that is deeper than the pain and doubts, and guides us beyond Christian platitudes to genuine rest in the arms of our heavenly Father. I look forward to recommending this book to people in our church.

This is t a sentimental memoir or ather theoretical look at suffering. Instead, Michael leads us to the intersection of faith and life, of God's love and our pain, of God's plan and our questions.
Trevin Wax, author of Counterfeit Gospels and Holy Subversion
