Glenna Marshall- The Promise is His Presence: Why God Is Always Enough

Posted On August 5, 2019

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.
  • What role waiting on the Lord should have in the lives of Christians.

  • How the practice of lament helps Christians during seasons of grief and suffering.
  • How to respond to church hurt and deal with it in the Christian life.
