Daring to Hope: Finding God’s Goodness in the Broken and the Beautiful

Katie Davis Majors. Multnomah, $25.99 (240p) ISBN 978-0-7352-9051-8
Majors (Kisses from Katie) recalls the triumphs and tragedies she faced as an adoptive mom and missionary in Uganda. After her adopted daughter’s biological mother took the child back, Majors questioned God as she pleaded for him to bring her daughter home. God did not give her the answer she desired, and for the first time in her life, she wondered whether God was good. From there, Majors embarked on a journey of doubt and loss that brought her to a place of hope and understanding. While serving a disease- and poverty-stricken community in Uganda by volunteering at a hospital and eventually starting Amazima Ministries, Majors felt helpless watching many of the people she cared for—including friends and their children—suffer and sometimes die in her home. Pondering these events, she comes to the realization that God is good, gracious, near, faithful, and strong. The book is both sorrowful and encouraging, with love as the driving force behind hope. Majors tackles her doubt about her faith boldly, and her thoughts can serve as a reminder that God “breathed life into us so that we could breathe life into others.” (Oct.)
