Ninety Days of God's Goodness

by Randy Alcorn

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


Randy Alcorn’s deep and personal insight in 90 Days of God’s Goodness: Daily Reflections that Shine on Personal Darkness gives readers a new perspective on seeing God’s goodness in a world that is full of pain and suffering. When trials arise, many people lose sight of the hope they have in Christ and, without the proper foundation, their faith is shaken.

Through 90 daily reflections, Randy helps readers look at life from an accurate point of view. He does not make light of the fact that suffering hurts and loss breaks our hearts, but he does remind us that God sees us through and works in our lives even during such darkness. Each daily reflection begins with a passage of Scripture that goes directly with the day’s topic, followed by personal examples from the lives of everyday people or from Randy’s own life, thoughtfully chosen to parallel the Scripture passage and make readers really think about the daily message. Randy then closes each with a personal prayer that he invites readers to mold to their individual situation.

Randy Alcorn writes with a humble and very easy-to-read style, making sometimes complex issues more accessible. Having recently taken a course on contemporary Christian thought, Randy’s approach to the seemingly conflicting existence of God’s goodness and the presence of evil helped me to see what I had been learning applied to real life situations, not just hypothetical circumstances. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has experienced pain—which is pretty much everyone, if we’re honest—or anyone who has seen someone else question the goodness of God in light of life’s struggles. – Nicole E. Dynes,

Book Jacket:

When life throws challenges at us, our view of God’s presence can become cloudy. If God is good, why is there so much evil and suffering? In times of hardship, it’s easy to lose sight of God’s purpose, goodness, and love. 

90 Days of God’s Goodness
helps disperse the fog—little by little, discovery by discovery, day by day. Through these thoughtful, inspiring devotional readings, bestselling author Randy Alcorn brings clarity to the question of God’s goodness. 

For anyone who’s ever suffered, or shared in a loved one’s suffering…or for anyone who’s ever been painfully distressed by the prevalent evil in this world…90 Days of God’s Goodness opens a wide door to healing and the reassurance of a God whose love we can count on and always turn to.
