The greatest test of your faith wont come from routine encounters in your work, family or social life. Nor will it come from extraordinary challenges or temptations.

Through explorations of the Passion narrative, he uncovers a great deal to help you through the dark times, sharpening your vision of lifes meaning and showing you how to accept your crosses with love. Above all, van Zeller shows you that suffering has a purpose.

With help from this insightful book, youll learn how to resist discouragment, see your crosses for what they are, and bear them with perseverance.

In these pages you will learn:

  • The astounding significance of Christs decision to appear among men as a failure
  • The importance of being willing to share in the sufferings of others, and to carry their crosses as if they were your own (Do you dare?)
  • How you can grow holy and give glory to God even in the crosses that you feel too weak to carry
  • Why it is not, in fact, healthier to focus on enjoyment and trying to avoid all suffering
  • Compassion: why you must show it towards others - and more importantly, toward yourself
  • The part you have to play in the redemption of the world - and what it has to do with your daily sufferings
  • Detachment: why you should begin praying now to be freed from your attachment of the things of this world
  • And more, to help you gain the strength to meet your sufferings with abiding faith!
