Silver Lining: Messages of Hope and Cheer

Author: Jowett, John Henry (1864-1923)

Sometimes we just need a pick-me-up. This collection of sermons by John Henry Jowett is perfect for believers who need a little joy in their lives. Each sermon is based on a Bible verse, and Jowett speaks on the cheerful aspects of the passage. Themes include the light of God, manna in the desert, Isaiah 40:31 ("They shall mount up with wings as eagles"), and resting in God. Jowett manages to preach happy and chipper sermons without sounding insincere or naive. These messages are a shining ray of hope in a dark world where Christians so often preach doom and gloom. Here readers will find comfort for everyday problems and assurance that something greater lies beyond this life.
