Summary
Some days, the news seems too much to bear: yet another natural catastrophe or gun-toting madman fills the bulletins; or an unexpected phone call reveals that a loved one's cancer has returned. If we have faith in God, it gets shaken to the core. What was God doing in the moment when that tragedy could have been prevented? If we can't trust God to keep our children and loved ones safe, what can we trust God for? In his classic book, Where is God When it Hurts? Philip Yancey gave us permission to doubt, reasons not to abandon faith, and practical ways to reach out to hurting people. Now, with new perspectives and stories gathered from across nearly twenty-five years, he tackles the hard questions head-on once again. More veteran pilgrim than curious journalist in his later years, Yancey faces the issues which undermine faith with his trademark honesty, and emerges with comfort and hope. Along the way, he shows that Christians have an important part to play in bringing healing to a deeply wounded world.There are many hopeful reasons to ask, once again, the question that never goes away
