Why can’t I seem to conquer weaknesses that plague me?” “How do I know if I’m receiving revelation?” “Will the Lord forgive me after what I’ve done?” “Why can’t we seem to get ahead financially even though we faithfully pay our tithing?” “What if the Church’s position on gay marriage bothers me?”
Those are just a handful of the countless questions Sheri Dew has heard people ask over the years. “May I answer these questions,” she writes, “and any questions you may have, by posing a different question: Are you willing to engage in the wrestle? In an ongoing spiritual wrestle?”
In Worth the Wrestle, Sheri examines the process of asking good questions—whether those questions be doctrinal, procedural, historical, or intensely personal—and learning how to get answers. She demonstrates how to live by faith while seeking greater light and knowledge. And she testifies of principles that are worth wrestling for and of understanding that can be gained in no other way.

This is the kind of book that strong believers love and want to get for their friends and family members who are going through a faith crisis, but to the one who is struggling, it is very disappointing. The author talks about her own struggles and gets your hopes up that the long-awaited answers you've been waiting for is coming, only to have her say you'll have to find out for yourself. Very frustrating and annoying to the one in the crisis.
The book had some interesting points, but I felt it is more about the struggle the author had than answers for the reader.
I always learn so much when I read one of Sister Dews books. This one did not let me down.
