Resilient Faith – Lewis and Sarah Allen

Lewis & Sarah Allen, Resilient Faith (Wheaton: Crossway Books, 2023), 228 pp.

Resilient Faith: Learning to Rely on Jesus in the Struggles of Life by Lewis & Sarah Allen addresses the highs and lows of the Christian journey. The authors acknowledge that the Christian life can be exhausting. But at the same time, it is also exhilarating.

The aim of the book (as the title suggests) is to encourage followers of Christ to live resilient Christian lives; lives that are focused on the person and work of Jesus. Pastor and Mrs. Allen write, “What’s needed more than anything else is resilience, the ability to weather the storm and keep going.”

Resilience Faith is comprised of nine parts, each focusing on the Christian journey. Each part contains short chapters that lead readers to bank their hope and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ and his saving benefits on the cross. The writing is clear and basic and is directed at new and seasoned believers alike. However, new Christians will most likely benefit the most from the material. Each chapter concludes with penetrating questions that urge readers to apply what they’ve learned. A prayer is offered to help readers focus their attention on God and the saving benefits of his Son.

Resilient Faith accomplishes what it sets out to do. Many people will no doubt be greatly encouraged as their faith is challenged and stimulated by this thought-provoking book.

I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review.
