Blindsided by God: A Book Review

Peter Chin offers a deeply personal story of suffering.  His story is the story of many other Christians as well.  Blindsided by God is a story of keeping the faith when everything around you would cause a rational person to simply give up.

God told the Chins to start a church in Washington, D.C.  Their home was vandalized before they even got home from the closing.  Items were stolen from them regularly.  Then Carol got rare, triple-negative breast cancer.  Then they learned Carol was pregnant.  Heard enough?  But there’s more…

Chin honestly addresses the questions he, a pastor, asked God.  He shares his failures as well as his moments of deep spiritual insight.  This book is for anyone who wonders about the pain and struggles God allows us to experience.

I received a free review copy of this book from Bethany House.
