Book Review – When Will My Life Not Suck

by | May 1, 2013 | Christian Living

When Will My life Not Suck: Authentic Hope for the Disillusioned is written by Ramon Presson, an author, speaker, and clinically certified marriage and family therapist. This book explores the life of the apostle Paul to show how hope and joy are possible even when life disappoints. Through biblical and personal examples the author seeks to answer the question, “When will my life not suck?” This book helpfully explores anxiety, prayer, dealing with one’s past and much more.

Mr. Presson throughout this book demonstrates not only that he knows the material he is teaching but that he has experienced the material to varying degrees in his own life, and takes to heart its message. Some books are good at offering theory while others in this genre lean towards offering to many practical suggestions without any sufficient grounding in the Scriptures. When Will My Life Not Suck thankfully is a book that combines biblical knowledge and practical experience wonderfully while at the same time pointing the reader to the person and work of Jesus Christ.

This book would be helpful to those who are struggling with anxiety, dealing with anxiety or wondering how to be content in Christ. At the end of this book the author invites the reader to think big because the believer serves a big God. In doing this the author sets the readers gaze away from themselves and towards the Cross of Christ. I encourage you to pick up this book and learn what it means to biblically deal with significant struggles in ways that bring glory to God.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the New Growth Press book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

Learning from Jesus on What, Why, and How to Pray

When a small group from our church gathers to pray every week, we start by asking God to help us pray. Every Christian wants to pray, and we all ask the same question: How? We know we need help. So, when Jesus says, “you should pray like this” (Mt 6:9), we listen....
