After having several children, parents often feel well-equipped to take on the challenges of another child. When Matt and Tammy Parker decided to add a child to their family, they had little idea of the blessings and struggles God had in store for them. The Crucible's Fire paints a picture of God's steadfast love through trials as he holds one family in the loving and protective crucible of his faithfulness. Readers will learn:

·         The raw emotion of unexpected hardship

·         How to rely on God for strength

·         The beauty of God's faithfulness when it seems all hope is lost

·         How to trust in God through their own dark night of the soul

·         The sanctification that comes only through the refining fire of trials

·        Strengthen your own trust in God's refining faithfulness as you join this family through the joys and pains of raising a special needs child.


I was invested from the get-go.  This novel is a great example of the struggles not just a single person, but a family can go through. Sometimes you have to be able to take a step back and take a deeper look and find out why you were put in the position. That is what really came through this book for me. It also goes to show you can't always do it alone. 

Matt Parker's writing style is smooth and effortless. I felt like I was in his head and that is a huge testament to his writing ability. Powerful and Emotional and Inspiring. It really gives you a new light on those who are in the position he is in.
