All and Only - The First Word...and the Last
Our God is All and Only!
“Sometimes the kiss of a friend is betrayal, an untimely death is on time, a gentle sheep hides a vicious fang.”
Where is God in our common troubles?
What is He doing in the chaotic present?
Who is God in His nature? In His being?
The enigma of suffering is a challenge not only to the power of God but to His very nature: how can a good God allow suffering? He is the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, our All and Only — so where is He in the turmoil and tragedy of this world? God is so magnificently God that His vast imperial reign is powerful enough to fix any human dilemma, swallow all pain and answer every quandary…He is God.
“Your suffering has a life of its own, full of unborn ideas, pulsing with mystery, rich with potential to solve your future suffering, and – most amazing – your past as well. Your suffering holds the secrets to your appointed lot and is therefore the hiding place of your power. You must value your suffering enough to coax its treasure into your using.”
In these pages are piercing insights into the very flavor of God in the suffering of humanity as told through the lives of Abraham, David, Esther, Joseph and many others. Martha Kilpatrick writes in a unique poetic prose style, and All and Only sends a fresh plumb line into the depths of Old Testament characters as they struggle to find God’s mysterious purpose in their very human passage. Their stories, made living and relevant, become as current as the times of your own life.
“God prepares His Sovereign Solution and hides it in the very middle of the crisis, long before it rises.”

Once wasn't enough

I have read through the book once, and am rereading it again. It's so anointed, it reveals a fresh thought within each passage. I want to order more books.

Some books you just know are anointed and brought forth by the Lord. This one is obviously that kind of God written book. It is just awesome.

I can tell God wrote it word for word. The words just grab me. I am so excited about this message.
Wasn't a single read for me

"I am still reading and re-reading pieces of it that speak to me in new and surprising ways, always with that ring of truth in the spirit (and by the Spirit)"
It's so simple and yet so profound

I know that I can't express what I felt upon reading "All & Only." It was a wondrous, almost magical feeling: "Oh... so that's it. That explains everything." It's so simple and yet so profound. Honestly, I stand in awe of our God -
