ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Bible teacher and author, Nita Berquist, has more than 40 years of ministry experience and has published three Bible-study books and one fiction through Outskirts Press. She lives in Kent, Washington.
This is a book about healing for ordinary Christians. “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth” — 3 John 2, KJV. “O Lord my God, I cried unto thee and thou has healed me” — Psalm 30:2, KJV. This book is about good Bible sense and simple faith brought together to make healing from God available. It looks at some of these questions and delivers some lessons for healing and health. If God loves people why are they sick? What about God’s will in healing? If prayer works, why do some people we pray for still die? How could a good God let something bad happen? Why doesn’t God stop plagues?

God leads ordinary believers whether they are fully aware of Him or not. How does He lead men and what is the cost of following Him? These are some of the questions answered in this study. Somewhere With God looks at the special kind of courage it takes to follow someone you cannot see, who keeps pointing to someone else up ahead, and takes you somewhere you’ve never been. This is what it is like when you follow Jesus Christ. Every step you take with God is worth it, though you’ve not been there before. “And He led them forth by the right way …” (Psalm 107:7).

God cannot and will not be discredited by the devil, a created angel who disobeyed Him, then went on to corrupt all men who don’t believe or refuse to believe God’s truth. Smoke Screens looks at some of the counterfeits the devil uses and compares them with the powerful gifts and fruits of God’s Holy Spirit. Now it is the devil being discredited as God lives and works through His people to show the world how much He loves it.
