Courage For The Crisis

Written by popular Adventist author, Arthur S. Maxwell, this Adventist Heritage Classic shares how to receive valuable gifts such as calm in the face of calamity and tranquility in the face of trial. The author challenges the reader to develop the kind of relationship with God that begets courage in the face of calamity.
"The world is moving into ever-deepening crisis. . . . scarcely a month passes without a book being published by some philosopher, historian, or theologian, dissecting current trends and warning of the future.”
Half a century has passed since Arthur S. Maxwell wrote those words. Is the world a safer place now than it was then? Honest observers are bound to say No. In fact, if anything, life today has become even more uncertain, even less stable, than it was fifty years ago.
What do we need in times like these? Maxwell says it isn’t “a mere knowledge of the crisis, but courage to meet it.”
And where can we get that courage? Maxwell says from God. From the Cross. From good habits—such as obedience, worship, and dedication. And from the great certainties—such as God’s victory over evil, Jesus’ second coming, and the reality of heaven.
