This book boldly attempts a universal tribute to anyone who has ever been discouraged in life. At once, that makes the contents of this book a useful revelation for everybody. Dr. Ralph Dartey puts it most succinctly in the opening pages of this very important life guide, that discouragement challenges and tests our faith more than our worst trials and temptations. Fighting Discouragement has been written to warn, educate and encourage every discouraged person to build and develop tools for victory. While afflictions and adversities derail our human progress, discouragement takes away our resolve to press forward when we fail to fulfill purpose. A discouraged person is broken, and therefore, not effective to actualize his or her life's goals. Where it has seeped through the congregation to affect the church as an institution, discouragement has delayed the growth of ministries and wrecked important programmes of expansion. These are hard truths – cold facts that we have ignored because we have focused more on prominent institutional and personal problems buffeting the Church today. Dr. Dartey explores the arcane subject of discouragement with personal and professional experiences from his own life and ministry. Drawing from lessons learned in the poor neighborhood of Sukula in his native Ghana, where he took his first steps in evangelical outreach, to the accomplished preacher that he is today, he is able to combine biblical scholarship with the realities of contemporary Christian life, to tell a compelling story. For many reasons, Fighting Discouragement is a personal triumph and a joy for a man who fought his inner struggles for a choice between two professional callings – to be a medical doctor or a pastor – and succeeded in responding to the greater call to ministry, which has made all the difference. He brings to the treatment of the subject of discouragement, a revelation and a vision that may be missing in similar works on the topic.
