Introduction: The Strength of Weakness

There aren’t too many things in this world that have the power to dramatically change your life. Yet, bookstores, and television and radio ads are full of resources that promise to do just that. Nothing Changes Until You Do, Think and Grow Rich, The Power of Now, The 48 Laws of Power, the list could go on. The search for improvement is intense. Why? Because each of us has a generous assortment of weaknesses that we’d desperately like to trade for strengths.

In the pages ahead, author Dan Schaeffer challenges us with the idea that the way to true strength may be down a path we don’t expect. In the Christian life, perhaps there is more to being weak than we first thought.
