Video: ‘Even If’ Author Mitchel Lee on the Goodness of God Amid the Troubles of Life

Editor’s note: This article will be updated with a transcript at a later time.

Mitchel Lee, lead pastor of Grace Community Church in Fulton, Maryland, recently published the book Even If: Trusting God When Life Disappoints, Overwhelms, or Just Doesn’t Make Sense.

In Even If, Lee explores how God remains present in the midst of suffering, loss, and disappointment.

In the video below, Lee talks with Faithfully Magazine Associate Editor Timothy Isaiah Cho about the “even if” life of a Christian that holds the goodness of God in one hand and the troubles of life in the other.
