Confidence Amid Chaos

Dr. David Jeremiah, senior pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church in El Cajon, California, scored a New York Times bestseller with his book, What in the World Is Going On? In that book he identified ten prophetic clues that he says are being fulfilled in these tumultuous times.

In his newest book, Living with Confidence in a Chaotic World, he follows up that message with answers to the question, "What in the world do we do now?" His answers, thorough, biblical, and encouraging, form the outline of the book:
Stay Calm
Stay Compassionate
Stay Constructive
Stay Challenged
Stay Connected
Stay Centered
Stay Confident
Stay Consistent
Stay Committed
Stay Convinced
Most inspiring and helpful for this reader was the fourth chapter, on staying challenged, in which he tells the stories of professor Liviu Librescu, missionary Geoffrey Bull, and Sabrina Wurmbrand, who with her husband Richard and son Mihai survived prison and torture for her faith in Jesus Christ.

Though at times sermonic (which is understandable, given the author's decades of pastoral ministry), Living with Confidence in a Chaotic World is never shallow or boring. It is a hopeful and helpful book, and one which deserves a wide readership.
