Faith is never losing hope in the midst of our circumstances, even when there is no glimmer of evidence that we can make it. In these instances, our faith wavers, but because of God, we can always have hope. This isn’t easy by any stretch of the imagination. In Passing the Test of Faith, Eddie Johnson helps us understand this. Through his vulnerability and intellect, Eddie produces a real-life picture of what all of our lives resemble.
