Things don't always go the way we intend. It's easy to feel discouraged because what we hope for is badly thwarted, or because people make life difficult. Paul, writing to the Philippians from prison, certainly knew what it was like to have plans interrupted. But he maintains robust confidence in God's overruling power, even when everything seems to be going wrong. These eight studies will help us learn from Paul the art of seeing God's purposes working out through problems and difficulties, and will deepen our own confidence in God's power.

"Tom Wright is a gift to the church today. In this series, Christians who are just learning about their faith will experience new discoveries and fresh views on life, and seasoned Bible readers will find themselves challenged to reconsider old perspectives. It deserves to be in the homes of all Christians."

Scot McKnight, author of The King Jesus Gospel
