Pastor Les Ferguson Discusses Faith at Off Square Books with “Still Wrestling” Friday, July 27
Book signing at Off Square Books on Friday, July 27 at 5 pm
Les Ferguson, Jr. holds a BA in Bible from Magnolia Bible College and an MA in New Testament Preaching from Johnson University. Following a six-year Navy career, he spent twenty years in youth and pulpit ministry positions. After the double murders of his wife and disabled son, Les temporarily left ministry. He has since married his childhood sweetheart and returned to preaching at the Lake Harbor Drive Church of Christ. They have six sons and one grandson between them. Les has maintained the popular blog Desperately Wanting to Believe Again since 2013 and is a columnist for the Clarion Ledger.
In the aftermath of a double murder, a destroyed family, and a shattered faith, Les gives hope to others wrestling with God through a dramatically different study of the Bible’s characters.
Life happens to us all. When good turns to bad, the journey from bad back to good can seem impossible. In this candid book, Pastor Les Ferguson shares his true story of when he struggled to believe not that God existed but that he cared. The questions of faith and doubt shared in Still Wrestling show Les’s journey through tragedy to a deep, renewed faith.
Les approaches God’s word from a perspective entirely different from the average Sunday school book. He guides readers through a study of the Bible’s characters by examining their humanity, seeing their fears, and acknowledging their weaknesses, exploring our own brokenness through the broken characters of God’s Word.
