This review is from: When Times Are Tough: 5 Scriptures That Will Help You Get Through Almost Anything (Hardcover)
John Bytheway based this book on a talk he was invited to give to the Columbine High School seminary class shortly after the tragic shooting spree at their school in 1999. He focuses on the messages in the scriptures that will strengthen and comfort us in the face of life's hardest challenges.

The five key scriptures he has selected are discussed in the first chapter:

1. "[We] know that [God] loveth his children" (1 Nephi 11:17)
2. We know that God allows evil to exist in the world (Moses 7:26-33)
3. "Our work is not finished" (Alma 14:13)
4. The Atonement is not just for sinners (Alma 7:11-12)
5. One day the Lord will reveal all things (D&C 101:32-36)

Reading and reflecting on the implications of these scriptures reminds us to have an eternal perspective on the challenges of this life. And ask for strength and wisdom to deal with them. In the book's remaining chapters, Bytheway extends his "five key scriptures" approach to the ones that help strengthen marriage, improve family relationships, strengthen faith, and motivate us to act.

This is a good book that you should read during the calm times before adversity finds you. You will be better equipped to meet it. And understand it. Note that the author writes to members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints ("Mormons"). Readers from other religious traditions may not find his book as accessible.
