"Faith does not break lose in my head with a whooping, 'Hurrah for God!'  Believing sneaks into my soul while my head is saying, 'My God, where were you when I needed you?'"

Lewis Smedes does not explain away pain or deny that things get bad and that life is hard.  Instead he helps us move beyond a disheartening present by being open to God and the certainty that things are, somehow, fundamentally right.

This book is about grace.

Grace is the courage to go on believing in the presence of suffering and death.  This is real believing, not just the intellectual kind.  "The thinking part is not all that hard.  IT is the feeling part that comes hard, the part that lets you know in the deep places of your soul that it is all right even when your head tells you everything is ghastly."
