Trouble is something all people must deal with: the loss of a spouse, a job, one's health, one's possessions, one's freedom. While God has not yet removed trouble from the Christian, or the Christian from trouble, he has, by the Word and His Spirit, given believers all that is necessary to handle trouble successfully.
Focusing on Philippians 1:12-26, where Paul views his hardship as an opportunity to glorify Christ, Adams presents clear and biblical directives for discerning God's hand at work in bringing good out of troublesome circumstances, great and small.
