Living at the End of the Rope presents a marvelous collection of humbling stories, demonstrating the triumph of God’s grace shining through the darkness. Thank you Ron, for assembling these stories as a reminder of our frailty, and of God’s power to bring healing.
– Philip Boom, President, Emmaus Bible College
As I turn the tearful pages and watch the parade of broken, healing people pass by, I gather strength to face my own hurts and heartaches as a fellow sufferer in this hard world.
– Shane Johnson, Author
How can you go on when things are not getting better?
In this book, you will meet real people living with: the tendency to abuse alcohol, the memory of aborting a child, the death of immediate family members, the frustration of deteriorating health, the pain of unexpected divorce, the challenges of raising a child with special needs, the conflicting emotions arising from a mismatched marriage, and more.
Ron Hughes presents 10 accounts of the presence of God sustaining those who are living at the end of the rope. His work in media since the mid-70s and vocation in ministry since 1983 have provided him with hundreds of opportunities to interact with people in all kinds of circumstances. His subjects in these chapters made themselves vulnerable in unexpected ways which allow readers to identify strongly with the thoughts and emotions common to all of us who struggle.
Here, you will find no tales of instant deliverance, miraculous cures, or dramatic victories. Instead, these pages contain the stories of ordinary people walking day-by-day through the end-of-the-rope experiences which build faith and bring hope to life.
