THE BOOK OF HABAKKUK is about learning to believe that God is good and maintains control even when there is so much evil and tragedy in the world around us. Though this book is often overlooked during times of peace and prosperity, it has tended to be studied when believers needed to learn how to talk to God during epic events.
As you study the ancient poetry of Habakkuk, you will:
-Gain perspective on the trials your currently facing and learn to navigate them free of fear and full of faith.
-Exercise six habits of living by faith.
-Remember how God has been faithful to you in the past.
-Learn how to talk to God when you’re frustrated or devastated.
“When I began research for this Bible study, I could not have imagined the backdrop upon which it would be released. On my very last day of writing, I heard of a deadly novel coronavirus infecting people in China. Before we sent this book to the printer, the COVID-19 pandemic had imprinted the world. We need the lessons of Habakkuk always, but in an urgent and desperate way right now.” —DANNAH GRESH
I’ve known Dannah Gresh for over 30 years and this study reverberates with her heart for Christ’s church. Her challenge to us, like Habbakuk’s, is to wake up and listen for God’s voice, to be watchmen for Him in the time in which we live, and to make Christ’s glory known to the nations.

“Do we believe that God is good when nothing else seems to be? These are the questions we find embedded in the ancient prophetic book, Habakkuk, and the questions that Dannah Gresh writes us a permission slip to wrestle with in this breathtaking study.”
-Erin Davis, Author, 7 Feasts: Finding Christ in the Sacred Celebrations of the Old Testament
“Who would imagine that a tiny Old Testament book, written by a prophet whose name most of us can’t pronounce would be relevant to the trials of our current day? Dannah Gresh dusts off this ancient treasure and brings to life the promises that you and I must cling to in times of fear, wrestling, silence, and tragedy.”
