On today’s Equipping You in Grace show, Dave Jenkins and Glenna Marshall have a great conversation about the goodness of God, lament, suffering, reading and studying the Bible, church hurt, loving the Church, and her new book, The Promise is His Presence: Why God Is Always Enough (P&R, 2019).

  • The role of reading, studying, and meditating on Scripture helps Christians in challenge situations.
