Unreasonable Hope: Finding Faith in the God Who Brings Purpose to Your Pain by Chad Veach Book Review

In Unreasonable Hope, Chad Veach explored the importance of clinging onto hope in the mist of the storms and trials we have to endure in this life. Chad Veach shared about how their first child, Georgia was diagnosed with lissencephaly. Many children die before they turn the age of ten years old. This disorder affects her brain and it causes her not to function. She has horrible seizures that can happen at any time and it even caused her to throw up her food. She struggled gaining weight and they eventually had to have a feeding tube put in. Like most parents, they struggled with coming into terms with why God allowed their little girl to be born with a rare brain disorder. They were broken and heartbroken about the lost dreams for their daughters. Chad Veach admits it was difficult seeing other children walking, talking, and running and deep down he longed for Georgia to be able to do that. Throughout the book, Chad Veach revealed what he learned about trusting God through it all, believing that God is able to heal us, and having hope despite all the negative reports. 

I would recommend this life changing book to anyone who is longing for healing in their life and they are struggling with believing and hoping that all things are possible through Christ. This is the first time, I heard about Georgia’s story and I was amazed at reading how real Chad Veach was in sharing his frustrations and how he found his hope in God. I liked how he shared that many people prayed for Georgia’s healing and some even got G-tattoos to show their full support. This book was a wonderful reminder that God is able to heal us and He is with us always and He won’t forsake us. I’m currently seeking healing from whatever sickness is attacking my physical body. I have been to numerous doctors and had a head MRI and CAT scan. None of the doctors can figure out why my immune system is low. All they can do is provide blood infusions which I’m not doing right now. They are trying antibiotics as of right now. I will admit there are days where I’m ready to give up and I’m losing hope that tomorrow will be better. This book helped to refocus and place my hope in God and that He is able to rebuild my immune system to the normal levels. If you’re seeking a book on healing, believing, and hoping despite all the challenges you are facing, then read this book!
