about

Sooner or later, dark days obscure everyone's lives. Heartbreak is impartial. Tragedies, global or personal, strike every day, and people discover they have been swept out to sea by waves of destruction, anxiety, and catastrophe. How can Christians who believe in divine intervention understand the times when the lights go out and no miracle of deliverance appears?

Robert Wise has more than a passing relationship with tragedy. He has not only lost loved ones; he has been on the front lines of the mayhem that seems to increase every year. Wise was the first clergyman on the scene following the Murrah Building bombing in Oklahoma City. He ministered to frightened people after 9/11. He has encountered countless people experiencing tragedy, all of them asking the same question: Why do the innocent suffer?

"When There Is No Miracle" imparts the lessons Wise has learned in the midst of his own questioning. Each chapter encourages those who struggle, and demonstrates unexpected positive benefits of pain and suffering. Wise shares the experiences of those he has met in his ministry who faced times that seemed to be devoid of God's involvement. Yet, as Wise shows here, God is always behind the scenes, working for the ultimate good, even when we can't understand how. In this succinct volume, Christians can find new hope, learn to reconcile their faith with times of emptiness, and discover a new depth of meaning in the crucifixion of Christ.]]>

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A book to read and reread as the truths of God's love sink into our inner being. In an age when we expect instant relief from what ever ails us, this book gives another prospective. The hardest question we can ask is “Why has God let this happen?”  “When There Is No Miracle” takes the reader through twelve chapters that lead us gently into a better understanding of God, the Holy Spirit, ourselves and humanity at large. The author,  Robert L Wise, acknowledges the evil in the world and that God is still in control. Also our anger and frustration when we do not see a way out of the situation and on into the future. Written clearly and simply with compassionate care and many illustrations of God's love, grace and healing power. This book was hard to put down and a pencil and paper soon became covered with notes.  A book to read and reread as the truths of God's love sink into our inner being. *Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of “When There Is No Miracle” from Kregel Publishing in exchange for my review. All opinions are 100% my own.
