If there is a loving God, then why is it that …..?
You’ve heard that question, perhaps asked it yourself. No matter how you complete it, at its root lies the issue of pain. In this award-winning book, Philip Yancey reveals a God who is neither capricious nor unconcerned. Using examples from the Bible and from his own experiences, Yancey looks at pain–physical, emotional, and spiritual–and helps us understand why we suffer. Where Is God When It Hurts? will speak to those for whom life sometimes just doesn’t make sense. And it will help equip anyone who wants to reach out to someone in pain but doesn’t know what to say.
Philip Yancey is one of the most popular and acclaimed religious writers of our day. His searching and refreshingly honest books, which include FINDING GOD IN UNEXPECTED PLACES, SOUL SURVIVOR and PRAYER have encouraged and inspired millions of people around the world.
With a background in journalism, Philip admits that he prefers to ask the questions instead of answer them. This has led him through a path of re-discovering his faith and sharing that, publicly through his writing, in some of the most heart-felt and tried ways imaginable. A true wordsmith, a curator of language, Philip tackles difficult issues with an approach of ‘this is what I’ve wrestled with and how I got through it so perhaps you might find it helpful too’ makes his reading incredibly engaging.
Philip admits that he lost his faith in a racist church and made a living out of being a doubter and sceptic. After he came back to his faith, he wrote books about his journey by ‘circling the edges’ of common issues and eventually moving on to topics like Jesus, grace and most recently prayer. Billy Graham has said that there is no one in the evangelical world whom he admires more.
