Faith is the Evidence

This book testifies of how the long, harsh waiting years can be turned into non-wasted minutes in the presence of God.  This book verifies that the poverty existence can be rich in relationship with our Pauper King.  This book recounts the character of God so magnificently that the human wickedness is but a shadow.   I found the book to be uplifting, powerful and timely because the author is wrapped up in the person of Christ.

As Hebrews 11:1 says, "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." 

The Not Seen Part is pretty darn relevant to this book.  When Barnabas asked, "Where was God?", he was burying his friends. When Barnabas asked, "Where was this feast?", he was dining on buffalo hide rope.  His faith was sustained by the Invisible when the evidence seemed missing.
