Morgan (Then Sings My Soul) reveals the remarkable power of a single Bible verse--Romans 8:28 ("We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God") that will give readers an unshakable basis for confidence and joy. Filled with real-life illustrations of triumph over tragedy, The Promise not only empowers us to deal effectively with everyday stress and strain, but offers solid assurance to anyone facing serious trouble. In his personable style, Morgan shares strong techniques for reversing misfortunes, finding purpose in painful situations, and turning discouragement into resilience. Here is a book to use for yourself and share with others in every hour of need. Major sections of The Promise include All Things Work Together . . . : For Our Good; For the Good of Others; For the Deepening of the Soul; For the Glory of God; For the Spreading of the Gospel; In Human History; In the Cemetery; Because of Jesus. Endorsements: "Rob Morgan never disappoints me. His books do what a good book should do: make you think about life from a new and fresh perspective. The Promise is a brand new treatment of an old and enduring verse. After you have finished reading it, put it where you can find it. If you don't need it, someone you love will!" -David Jeremiah, author of Signs of Life: Back to the Basics of Authentic Christianity

"For years Robert Morgan has inspired me with his pastoral insights and heartfelt storytelling. In The Promise , he celebrates the mystery and power of one of the Bible's most poignant verses. Thoughtful, inspiring, and comforting, this book will help Christians find hope and encouragement as they live out their part in God's glorious story."

-- Steven James , storyteller and award-winning author of Story: Recapture the Mystery

"In The Promise Rob Morgan has put walking shoes on Romans 8:28. He has then walked it through life situations making application along the journey. With laser point accuracy he has focused our attention where it should be - on 'God' who works all things together for our good rather than on "things" that we too often dwell upon."

-- Jim Mullen , managing director, Billy Graham Evangelistic Association
