When Will My Life Not Suck?: Authentic Hope for the DisillusionedWhen Will My Life Not Suck?: Authentic Hope for the Disillusioned by Ramon Presson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was able to get an early release of “When will My Life Not Suck?” It’s almost worth the reading just for the title alone. I really enjoyed Ramon’s take on pain and loss and how we recover from them. The book is well written. This is not some heady psychology book, but rather has a very hit-me-where-I’m-living feel. Taken mostly from the teaching of Paul to the Phillippians, Ramon shows us that we all will have trouble in this world…but Jesus has overcome it. I think it is best summed up by one of his many humorous examples in the book. A black belt instructor basically tells his students that when they come to terms with the fact that they will be cut if someone attacks them with a knife…cut for sure…so if they’ll accept that, then they can get on with business of really fighting for their lives. I loved that, and I really like this book.
