Book Review~~Trusting God to Get You Through by Jason Crabb

Charisma House (January 4, 2011)
***Special thanks to Anna Coelho Silva | Publicity Coordinator, Book Group | Strang Communications for sending me a review copy.***
Best known as the powerhouse lead vocalist for one of Gospel’s most acclaimed and awarded groups, The Crabb Family, Jason Crabb’s career has already been an incredible ride. While garnering multiple Dove Awards, three GRAMMY nominations, and 16 #1 singles with his family, Jason has become one of the Christian music community’s most acclaimed vocalists. Crabb has become a “fan favorite” at the Grand Ole Opry, appeared regularly on the Gaither Homecoming Series videos, and was honored to sing for the Rev. Billy Graham’s final crusade in New York. He has sung with the legendary Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, among many other diverse and prestigious opportunities. His solo album debuted at #1 on Nielsen SoundScan’s Christian/Gospel Christian Retail chart the week following its release in 2009.
More than anything else, this book is about an amazing God who reaches down and touches ordinary lives. It is a testimony of all He has done for Jason Crabb's family and for the people he has been privileged to meet throughout the years on the road. He wrote this book because every soul walks through the fire of adversity. Most of us have walked that plank several times. Whether the life of your dreams is unfolding before your eyes, or you are losing hope that it ever will, you have tasted a trial or two. No human being with breath in his lungs can say, "Difficulty has never darkened my doorstep." You may have entirely different life experiences than Jason. Yet, when you look in the rear view mirror, you can see the high points and low points of days gone by. The important thing—the truly amazing thing—is that like Jason—you came through all of it. There may be a scar or two to remind us of the past, but the past is behind us. Jason Crabb wants you to know that you came through it for a reason.There is something God is yet going to do with you. The important things to remember is that you can go through the fire—any fire—with God's help.

I've been a fan of The Crabb Family's music for along time.  This book made me realise we ALL walk through trials.  Many times when you hear people on the radio you think to yourself...boy I wish I had it all together like they do!!  I never stopped to think that they struggle just like we do...many times more than we do.  They have this "image" they have to keep.  In the book Jason talks about his past and the scars.  My past is something I struggle a lot with!!  But God saved me for a purpose!  I really think everyone should read this book.  It is a great uplifting book!  I realized that I'm not the only one with a past!

Hi Jen,

I was wondering if you posted the tour for Come to Me? The author checked and couldn't find it. Please email me if there was a problem. Thanks!
