REVIEW: Blindsided by God ~ by Peter Chin

blindsided

…even a brief glimpse of God in the midst of the storm is better than a lifetime spent in blissful ignorance.

Thanks to Bethany House for my complimentary copy and the opportunity to review this book.


“Blindsided by God” was my first review for Bethany House, and what an amazing read. Peter Chin, currently pastor at Rainier Avenue Church in Seattle, Washington, as well as husband and father to five children, shares his story of how God revealed to him in a very personal and very real way that…

1. God is always with you, whether it be a high time of constant praise and thankfulness, or a low time of nagging fear and doubt

2. God always has an intricately orchestrated plan, and we seldom see the choreography of that plan until after the fact.

3. God’s plan is not only beyond our understanding, it is far better than we could imagine or dream.

Peter’s story uses his first-hand experience to show how God stayed by Peter’s and his family’s side during one of the darkest times in their life; a time that–without giving everything away– I can best describe as traumatic, sometimes bizarre, and constantly humbling.

As Peter stated “God was not simply incomprehensible — He was incomprehensibly loving.” (pg 221)

Read his story, and I am sure you will re-examine what it means to walk by faith and what you consider a miracle.
