The Power of God and the Weakness of Man is a book designed for both those who wish to know more about Jesus as well as those who seek him with a sincere heart. There are so many interesting and life-touching stories told to develop a point and to shed more light on a given topic. It is fun to read and also suitable both to inexperienced as well as sophisticated readers. The approach used by the author serves as an immense help that guides the reader to develop an insight into some biblical themes and passages, which under normal circumstances he/she might take for granted. You would certainly be right if you regard the book as an inspirational work because it was designed to uplift the hearts and minds of those who are on the verge of losing hope or giving up on life due to life's many challenges. It helps us to understand that a bend in the road is not the end of the road unless we fail to make the turn. We could easily be one dimensional, parochial and, even, tunnel visioned, as we grapple with life's challenges. For believers, they appreciate that Jesus never leaves their side, not even in very difficult moments.Above all, what should challenge our mind is the fact that if God the Father approved suffering for his own son, why then do we think that ours' will be any different? The scripture tells us that God loves his son so much, which might imply that if the one he loved so much was allowed to suffer and die then suffering and death are only a means to a happy reunion with him. From a spiritual angle of vision, suffering and death are portrayed as being good which eventually leads to the greatest good, which is life in God. Some are negatively influenced by certain worldviews that tend to see suffering as a curse and a calamity. This kind of perspective or paradigm, only serves to ginger us to be in acquisition mode, in order to escape suffering by all means, so as to look good in the eyes of the world.Christians as pilgrims are called upon not to lose focus of their goal despite the many challenges and distractions in our world.
