Follow God's process for growth and find hope in life's darkest moments with Bishop T.D. Jakes's uplifting stories and advice from his own faith journey.
In this insightful book, #1 New York Times bestselling author T.D. Jakes wrestles with age-old questions: Why do the righteous suffer? Where is God in all the injustice?
Bishop Jakes tells crushing personal stories from his own journey -- the painful experience of learning his young teenage daughter was pregnant, the agony of watching his mother succumb to Alzheimer's, and the shock and helplessness he felt when his son had a heart attack.
Bishop Jakes wants to show you how God uses difficult, crushing experiences to prepare you for unexpected blessings. If you are faithful through suffering, you will be surprised by God's joy, comforted by His peace, and fulfilled with His purpose. Crushing will inspire you to have hope, even in your most difficult moments. If you trust in God and lean on Him during setbacks, He will lead you through.


  • Very repetitive

    This book could have been 150 pages but it just kept dragging on with the same message on every page.
  • Poignant

  • New Perspective

    By Kay Denelle
    Wow! This book helps anyone to understand the reality of the scriptures that involve afflictions and trouble that happens in the life of the believer. It inspires those who have been in despair to look at the work of God in their lives as a process to becoming something much more useful! From grapes to wine! Loved this book, helping me to overcome my divorce and not to focus on the negatives of what happened but how they have shaped me to who I am today! Amazing!
  • Holy Spirit Rain Down

    By Spades mania
    “For such a time as this‼️” I pray that this book find everyone. As I listened for God’s voice, He blessed me over and over again. There were definitely moments when He rocked me back and forth, as if I was in the cradle of His arms. Not in my wildest imagination would I have ever thought that I would have a chance to walk along side by side with God while reading CRUSHING, but that’s exactly what I experienced. My eBook looks like a rainbow, because I have highlighted so many MOMENTS❣️— “I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. (Genesis 9:13 - NIV) I will NEVER fully be able to thank you Bishop T.D. Jakes, for your wisdom, gift, and obedience to surrender to the Holy Spirit❣️🙏🏾 #Holy #Spirit #Rain #Down
  • A blessing to anyone that reads

    By Koko mpko
    I began watching TD Jakes preach a few months ago. I was trying to rekindle my relationship with God and after the first sermon I heard him preach, I thought wow, he really gets through me. Being at a difficult and trial period in my life right now, I knew I needed more from this man of God to take me through my trying phase. I finished this book in a week. Bishop really speaks to you all the while passing the word of the Lord. Finishing this book, I feel a peace that I have never felt in my heart. Even though everything may seem to be in chaos, there is this stillness and calmness that presides over me. A truly magnificent piece of work. Thank you Bishop and may the peace of the Lord which passes all understand fill you and those whom you love. In Jesus Name. Amen.

    At the time I read this book I was at a very dark and low place in my life . I was going through a very bad breakup and I had death after death in the family . I went to god in asked (why all this is happening to me god) !? So I was out shopping one day in I walked pasted a book store in something deep down inside of me told me to stop go inside that book store in look for a specific book so I came across this book , purchased it in been reading every since in this book have taught me god takes us through seasons so that he can shape us a certain way he won’t us to be so that he can get the glory out of our situations . I recommend this book to anyone that’s going through their “ Crushing season” in you at a dead end in your life.
  • Truly satisfying

    By ReefaTeefa
    This book is everything I’m going through in my season of life currently. I couldn’t stop reading it. I love how everything is broken down in laments so that we are able to deeply understand this process. God is good!
