After the initial fears of Y2K passed, many believed the new millennium would be one of great progress and unprecedented prosperity. Instead, beginning with the horrific events of September 11, 2001, the first decade of the twenty-first century has been filled with threats of terrorism, economic collapse, mounting private and public debt, and wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Add to these the ever-present problems of sickness, crime, divorce, political corruption, and death, and it's no wonder we live in a time of great skepticism and hopeless despair.
But uncertainty, anger, anxiety, and discouragement are not just the reactions of a lost world. They can also be felt and seen among many Christians as well. Some will believe that God has left them. In The Five Great Promises of God, author David Taylor assures readers that God has not forgotten them. In his Word, God has addressed every major concern a person could possibly face.
Taylor explains that every promise God gave in his unchanging Word can be traced back to five specific promises. These promises help us understand the truth about our salvation, our physical needs, our death, creation, and the Second Coming of Jesus. These five promises encompass our entire existence and will surely give birth to what we all need in a world like ours-hope.
