We ask questions about God, life, and suffering especially in the wake of major tragedies. Glib answers don’t help.
In this expanded and updated edition of Where is God in a Messed-up World? Roger Carswell investigates the answers to these questions. He is realistic enough to admit that there are things God reveals to us, and things he doesn’t reveal. Roger argues that the starting point is to find out who God is, and to figure out if he can be trusted – even if we don’t have all the answers.
The author’s own experience of suffering with depression, and the real-life stories that are included, make this a compassionate and encouraging look at one of the toughest questions about the Christian faith. Without dodging or dismissing the issues, Where is God in a Messed-up World? shows that our questioning need not be a barrier to entrusting ourselves to God.
'A realistic and compassionate view of how we can respond to suffering.'
