Don’t Quit in the Pit: Power to Turn Any Situation Around

Danette Joy Crawford, . . Whitaker House, $12.99 (253pp) ISBN 978-1-60374-184-2

A televangelist to an audience of 165 million homes and president of Joy Ministries Evangelistic Association, Crawford tells her personal story of never quitting despite adverse circumstances of poverty, rejection, and betrayal. She recalls her feeble first steps as a Christian believer who trusted God to overcome any and all odds in her life. The author’s faith was quickly put to the test when after a brief marriage to a man addicted to pornography, she was pressed into single motherhood with no financial resources. Convinced that God had called her into full-time evangelistic ministry, the author details account after account of how God met her every need in the years that followed. This rousing and inspiring text tells Crawford’s life story and, with every chapter, challenges fellow followers of Jesus to entrust themselves to God no matter what “pit” they find themselves in. Crawford’s large audience will be pleased she put into print the messages she preaches. (Mar.)
