Synopsis: The purpose of this book is to encourage people who are struggling with understanding how a loving God seemingly allows evil in the lives of his children-that He jealously protects-and for the maturing of his children-whom He sincerely loves. The book, which is a result of a personal journey in the author's life and ministry, is a remarkable blending of an exposition of the biblical book of Habakkuk and a firsthand account of the contemporary struggles faced by believers in Africa. The author identifies with Habakkuk's struggles and sees how they apply generally to his own fellow Africans. More than merely identifying with Habakkuk's plight, however, the author also sees how Habakkuk worked through his struggles to a mature view of God's sovereignty and the necessity for a vital faith that trusts the Lord no matter what. This book will encourage you with its positive message of God's ultimate goodness-even in the midst challenging circumstances-and it will motivate you to submit your life to him, so that you may triumph over those circumstances through the power of the Holy Spirit. Endorsements: "Sometimes things seem overwhelming. Evil continues to increase and ravage good people. When will it ever stop? Rev. Faustin Ntamushobora offers us rare insights into questions of theodicy in our global era. As one who sacrificially lived out his faith during the Rwandan genocide, Ntamushobora thinks profoundly, writes passionately, and helps us to live through the wretchedness of life as we put our faith in the God of Habbakuk." --Roberta R. King Associate Professor of Communication and Ethnomusicology Fuller Theological Seminary "Faustin narrates an African story through the experience of Prophet Habakkuk that the covenant keeping God will inevitably fulfill his promise. He identifies with the prevailing tragedies and communicates biblical truth to the affected millions on the continent that God is active in their suffering and will punish the perpetrators of evil. God is preparing a generation of leaders to fulfill his plans and purposes for Africa. I highly recommend this book to all Christian leaders." --Emmanuel Bellon Vice Chancellor Nairobi International School of Theology Author Biography: Faustin Ntamushobora, an ordained Baptist minister from Rwanda, is pursuing a candidate in the doctoral program in Educational Studies at Biola University, where he serves as Adjunct Professor and is Executive Director for Transformational Leadership in Africa, TLAfrica, Inc.
