Polishing God's Monuments is the true story of a young woman and her devoted husband who face it all (and then some) as a baffling, mind-boggling illness hijacks their youth and shatters their dreams. It blends straightforward theology with the account of this young couple's afflictions. A sober reality in the life of faith is that "through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God." God's people are buffeted in two ways: sometimes we suffer for the faith and other times we suffer with faith. Either way, our faith remains a work in progress. In the midst of troubles, our emotions can vacillate between moments of comprehension and times of total confusion. This book confronts these issues head-on and offers believers biblical perspective, practical direction, and sustaining hope. "This book doesn't just tiptoe around the topic of suffering, but hits head-on the hardest questions we have about the goodness of God and the problem of suffering. Juli's story will shake you as well as inspire you." -- Joni Eareckson Tada, International Disability Center "Jim Andrews carefully avoids pious platitudes to fellow sufferers, offering instead the kind of pastoral wisdom that restores even the most weary and despondent." -- John Benson, Chairman of Investment Trust company "Pushed towards hopelessness or despair? This book provides a unique perspective from some long-suffering saints who show us the blessing of 'monumental faith'." -- Joe Fields, Chief Operating Officer, JTV "A true story so gripping and moving and inspiring that one cannot put the book down. To enter into this theological reflection on suffering is to accept the challenge to grow deeply in Christ, and to cherish the sure and certain promise of the gospel." -- Bruce A. Ware, Professor of Christian Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
