Finding Meaning in the Midst of Suffering

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.

And now, thirty years after writing his first book, Yancey revisits our cry of "Why, God" in three places stunned into silence by the calamities that have devastated them.  At some point all of us will face the challenges to faith Yancey writes about and look for the comfort and hope he describes.

There are reasons to ask, once again, the question that never goes away: Where is God when we suffer? And Yancey, once again, leads us to find faith when it is most severely put to the test.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from another great book by Yancey Philip Yancey’s first book was titled Where Is God When It Hurts? He revisits that theme in this short book after traveling to Newtown, Connecticut after the horrific events that transpired there in Dec. of 2012, and after other tragedies such as the Boston Marathon bombings, a fertilizer plant explosion, an earthquake in China, tornadoes in Oklahoma, wildfires in Colorado and Arizona. The question that never goes away, then, is “Why would God allow all of this to happen?” And in his trademark style and grace-filled tone, Yancey encourages the reader to find meaning in the midst of suffering, to embrace times of doubt while not abandoning faith in hard times, as well as practical ways to reach out to hurting people. I’ve always been a huge fan of Yancey’s writing, and this book did not disappoint. He has a great mix of theology, Biblical studies and compassion that strikes the right chord, and this truly in an encouraging read for those who are in the midst of suffering, or those helping another to maintain faith in hard times.
