Publisher's Summary

Encouragement and practical steps from best-selling author Christine Caine to help you move from anxiety about the unexpected to embracing confident faith in a good God.

Is it possible to have peace in an uncertain world? To not only expect the unexpected but embrace it? Most of us want to have life under control. But God wants us to anticipate the unexpected with a faith deeply rooted in his goodness. He wants us to know that because he is in control, we don't have to be.

In Unexpected, beloved author Christine Caine helps us walk into the life God has for us - unknowns and all. Using dramatic examples from her own journey, Christine offers real-life strategies and biblical inspiration to help you:

  • Anticipate the unexpected - personal upheaval, relational challenges, financial stresses, family transitions, career disappointments, and chaotic world affairs, etc.
  • Move from fear and worry about ourselves to hope and trust in God
  • Learn new ways to manage disappointment, strengthen our hearts, and build our faith
  • Step into the unknown to embrace your God-given destiny
  • Live in the joyful freedom of complete trust in God

Nothing in our lives takes God by surprise. So even in the midst of personal upheaval, relational challenges, financial stresses, family transitions, career disappointments, and chaotic world affairs, we can expect God to be good and do good. What other expectation do we need to have? Listen to God’s dare to trust him in every unknown of your life today.

Also available: Unexpected video study and study guide.

Unexpectedly Wonderful!!

A very refreshing telling of reasons to keep on keeping on! I am inspired and excited after listening to UNEXPECTED to cherish every experience in life as something God will use to bless others and bring about His purposes in me. The information about Christine Caine’s passion for human trafficking prevention was extremely enlightening and an impetus to see how I can personally help where God has placed me.

Just wow

This was my first encounter with Christine Caine. Now I want to go hang out with her and work along side her after listening to this book. So honest and humble. This was just what I needed to hear as I’m embarking on a new adventure God has placed firmly in my heart and soul. Now just have to decide which of her books to listen to next. ❤️❤️❤️

Best Book I've Ever Heard

This book was honestly one of the best audiobooks I had ever listened to. Christine was honest and told her story with confidence. She was, I believe, inspired by God while writing this book. Honestly, nothing bad to say about it at all. I think everyone needs to hear this book.

Such an encouraging and faith-inspiring book!

Although sometimes with the busyness of life, I don’t get to finish much books but every time I picked up Unashamed to read, it was hard to put it down. Every time I picked up this book it would speak life and clarity into the very season I was in. It would bring to light things I thought I had dealt with already. Thank you Christine for your transparency, boldness and love for the Lord and people.
