We have all been through difficult seasons and times in life when it seems like the hits keep coming and you can barely catch your breath. The Evans family knows what this is like, as they’ve experienced the deep grief of losing eight loved ones in less than two years’ time, including the devastating passing of Lois Evans, the matriarch of the family.
In Divine Disruption, Dr. Tony Evans and his children pull back the curtain on their faith-shaking experiences, in order to provide biblical wisdom and practical encouragement for how to deal with the hard, unexpected things we all inevitably face.
You’ll walk away with insights on:
- Why bad things happen despite a good and powerful God
- Persevering in difficult times and experiencing God’s peace
- What causes distress in your life—and how to move past it
- How to keep your faith from being damaged during tough times
Join the Evans Family in this unique Kingdom Legacy partnership as they candidly share honest questions they’ve asked, raw emotions they’ve felt, and solutions they’ve learned. Your life may have been interrupted, but you can use that to grow closer to God—and find peace.
A beautiful book through and through. We sit down with the Evans family and get a real, unedited look into their lives – loss, hope & faith. As a Christian, sometimes it’s hard to understand why bad things are happening to people with so much faith & hope. In this book we get each authors perspective about losses that happened and how they were dealt with. Such personal insight into this families heartache will have you in tears. It reads more like a personal conversation with each reader, which is phenomenal. This family suffered so many losses over a short time period then Covid happened. Being pubic figures it’s hard, having everyone’s eyes on you all the time. I think if you are grieving or have been through loss this book is a real eye opener.
