Summary

Encouragement and practical steps from best-selling author Christine Caine to help you move from anxiety about the unexpected to embracing confident faith in a good God.

Is it possible to have peace in an uncertain world? To not only expect the unexpected but embrace it? Most of us want to have life under control. But God wants us to anticipate the unexpected with a faith deeply rooted in his goodness. He wants us to know that because he is in control, we don't have to be.

In Unexpected, beloved author Christine Caine helps us walk into the life God has for us - unknowns and all. Using dramatic examples from her own journey, Christine offers real-life strategies and biblical inspiration to help you:

  • Anticipate the unexpected - personal upheaval, relational challenges, financial stresses, family transitions, career disappointments, and chaotic world affairs, etc.
  • Move from fear and worry about ourselves to hope and trust in God
  • Learn new ways to manage disappointment, strengthen our hearts, and build our faith
  • Step into the unknown to embrace your God-given destiny
  • Live in the joyful freedom of complete trust in God

Nothing in our lives takes God by surprise. So even in the midst of personal upheaval, relational challenges, financial stresses, family transitions, career disappointments, and chaotic world affairs, we can expect God to be good and do good. What other expectation do we need to have? Listen to God’s dare to trust him in every unknown of your life today.

Also available: Unexpected video study and study guide.

Thoughts from someone who disagrees

This book was a good read. I really like John Piper. I am however not Calvinist. I don’t agree with all of the points from this book. But I am glad to have such a good representation of Calvinism answering this question. This has been a question of mine to my Calvinist friends for a long time. Thanks for the book John Piper!

I would like to encourage anyone on the other side to not just throw out what you hear based on this view. John Piper for instance is an amazing bible scholar. I am able to and have learned so much from John about the scriptures. We can disagree and still be brothers in Christ, able to sharpen each other.

Worth the read for all.

Life Changing Experience!

This faith filled book definitely lived up to its name! Unexpectedly, I was chased down by wisdom, new insight, new perspective, new hope and deeper understanding of my relationship with Jesus. Confusions about my life and calling cleared up with such ease and peace. Everything makes sense now. Well, as much as it can within these Jesus adventures. Today, I’m walking with confidence and a new sense of freedom. This book changed my life forever. I can dream bigger without fear! I’m so thankful for your heart Pastor Christine! You’re faithfulness has repeatedly propelled me forward. Though I’ve never meet you I’ve learned so much from you over the years. Thank You!

Received the just in time.

This was heard in a time when I needed to hear these stories and this message. Christine Caine’s genuine candidness is what I needed to encourage me to continue to carry out God’s Mission, assignment and purpose for my life in and environment of impossibility and discouragement. I know now that impossibility and discouragement has nothing to do with my progress. It’s my Faith, Willingness and availability regardless of my ability that God needs to progress me through the process of his purpose. Thank you, I recommend this to all leaders and those who desire to fulfill the call of God on their life.
