Book Description:

Lewis and Sarah Allen Teach Young Christians How to Approach Difficulties and Disappointments Biblically

We all encounter problems and challenges on a daily basis, ranging from small things-traffic, losing your keys, or running late-to much bigger issues-job insecurity, health issues, and relationship struggles. What should a believer in Christ do in the face of such adversities?

Authors Lewis and Sarah Allen propose that while the world may teach us one way to approach challenges, there is a better way-complete dependence on Christ and pursuit of wise living. With the help of the Holy Spirit, Christians are able to live more joy-filled lives in the midst of adversity. In a conversational and personal tone, the Allens walk through key biblical passages as they relate to challenges and share stories, case studies, and illustrations to encourage us to rely on Christ and commit to his church in the battle of Christian life.


Lewis Allen (ThM, Westminster Theological Seminary) serves as senior pastor of Hope Church in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, England, which he helped plant after twelve years of pastoring a church in West London.

Sarah Allen (MTh, Union School of Theology) is an English teacher and the northern director of Flourish Course (a Gospel training initiative). She also leads the women's ministry at Hope Church in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, England.


"Resilience feels like an exotic rarity today. Christians want to be steadfastly joyful and faithful, yet so often we don't know how. Lewis and Sarah Allen shine the light of the gospel onto our everyday lives, showing how we can grow spiritual muscle amid the practical challenges we face. Here is wisdom and comfort for all who want to endure and thrive in Christ."
--Michael Reeves, President and Professor of Theology, Union School of Theology; author, Rejoice and Tremble and Gospel People

"Gentle yet firm where it needs to be, practical and biblical, this book is filled with actionable insights for the struggling Christian to (re)discover resilient faith!"
--Josh Moody, Senior Pastor, College Church, Wheaton, Illinois; President, God Centered Life Ministries

"Such wisdom! Lewis and Sarah Allen will arm you with gospel weaponry to apply to the whole of life, including habits in food, exercise, sleep, relationships, and spiritual discipline-spurring you on to retreat to Christ and thus grow in stamina. This book gave me the gospel backbone to face past hurts, especially those wrapped around the church, and move on to greater resilience, love, and service."
--Natalie Brand, Bible teacher; author, Prone to Wander: Grace for the Lukewarm and Apathetic

"Realistic, honest, and saturated in Scripture, Lewis and Sarah Allen gently challenge us to have the courage to defy our culture, deny ourselves, and follow Christ when we would rather stay on the sofa."
--Jonty and Linda Allcock, Pastor, The Globe Church, Central London, United Kingdom; author, Impossible Commands; and his wife, Linda, author, Deeper Still and Head Heart Hands
