About this title


"The darkest hour is just before dawn." The age-old adage has been borne out through the experiences of countless lives as a true statement. In Faith for a Dark Saturday, the noted theologian and historian James Baker shows how nine men from the Bible prove the point. Each man tells, in his own words, the misery of his darkest hour, a time that he did not know but we do was just before the dawning of a morning of hope. There is Abraham as he prepared to sacrifice his son Isaac. Jacob as he prepared to meet his hostile brother and possible death. Moses in desert exile before he sees the burning bush and receives the commission of his life. King Hezekiah as he awaits assault from the invincible Assyrian army. Joseph as he contemplates the scandal caused by his finance's pregnancy. The apostle Peter on the Saturday between the crucifixion and resurrection. Paul as he prepares to leave for Damascus to round up Christians. The jailer of Philippi before the earthquake that will bring his salvation. John in exile on Patmos before his vision. Everyone, sometimes in his life, experiences a dark Saturday of despair like the Saturday between the crucifixion and the resurrection of Christ. You will be inspired to lean on your own faith as you share the experiences of these men, caught in fear and despair, during the agony of their dark Saturdays, just before the dawn of a new day of hope. In Faith for a Dark Saturday, Dr. Baker imaginatively tells the stories of persons in the Bible who experienced severe testing of their faith and reached the darkest hour of despair.
