In today's world, greed, wars, and environmental disasters bring incomprehensible suffering to people everywhere, and it is sometimes hard to see the value of faith in God-especially when the encumbrances of religious traditions and church life have grown stale and no longer inspire our faith. Like us, author Pat Owens grew tired of living with mundane faith and decided to fight to know God in the fullness of His power. Faith like Fire chronicles her journey through soul-wrenching loss and debilitating disease to discovering a living and active God, giving us hope, encouragement, and the tools to experience God in our modern, everyday lives. Faith like Fire opens at the graveside of a cancer victim and moves through the tragic deaths of Owens loved ones. She confronts challenging questions head-on during this time: Where is God now? Is He the same God today as in the Bible? Her struggles guide us in confronting our own difficult questions. And when her faith's fire is lit following the miracle healing of her own incurable disease, Owens finally sees the purpose of the suffering as well as the wonderful things in this journey called life. To be engulfed by an all-consuming God is to dig deep into our core beliefs and risk shaking up our orderly faith. Are you ready to feel faith like fire and see God for who he really is?
