It may be something as personal as falling away from God, as private as saying the wrong thing at the wrong time, or as public as losing a job. Whatever the case, we all fail. And yet we live in a world that allows no room for error; that says our value is based only on our successes; that makes failure a burden we feel compelled to carry in silence for fear of being misunderstood, rejected, or even abandoned.

But as Christians we live by different definitions of success and failure--and thus we can have unfailing hope no matter the circumstances. In fact, not only does God have a wholly different perspective on failure, but the Bible makes it clear that He can still use us when we fall--sometimes more powerfully than ever before.

This book looks closely at God's Word, and particularly at the life of Peter, to remind us of the many ways God turns our missteps into stepping-stones. With chapters on looking forward, facing your fears, overcoming rejection, and much more, "Beyond Failure isa comforting companion on your way to becoming more like Christ. Practical, relevant, and upbeat, its insights will guide you to the peace that passes all understanding and help you find fresh strength in the valleys of life.
