Review of the title:

Comfort is a word seldom associated with religious faith by those who are not Christians. Doesn't religion make people uncomfortable with its demands? Isn't life more comfortable when we just live the way we want? Who needs to worry about a judgmental God watching our every move? Even the word Jesus is enough to cause people to squirm in their seats.

However, for many Christians the words Jesus and comfort are inextricably linked. In her classic work, God of All Comfort, Hannah Whitall Smith describes why faith in the Christian God leads to a comfort and joy that cannot be found elsewhere. Without Christ, life is little more than living through doubt, fear, and anxiety. In her inspirational work, Smith reminds the reader of the reality of God's promises to his people. With Christ, doubt, fear, and anxiety are obsolete feelings. (Andrew Hanson)
