It seems like in these waning days of light the Lord is giving us an abundance of eye-witnesses accounts of His kingdom and the "place He has prepared for us" in order to encourage us and keep us focused on His hope. This book is packed full of that. It is certainly in line with the suffering that individuals in the New Testament went through for the Lord, and the hope and vision that they had throughout. The authors also take an honest look at tough questions about suffering and hope. They show that, although there are some answers, there are still more opportunities for "faith," the thing that God is pleased with and will reward. Christians can certainly use the stories in this book to help them "stand firm to the end."
