Excerpt


Written as a result of his wife's diagnosis of a debilitating brain tumor and fight for her life, Greig asks the timeless questions of what it means to suffer and to pray and to suffer through the silence because your prayers seem unanswered. This silence, Greig relates, is the most difficult. The world collapses, people avoid you and don't know what to say, and so you turn to God and you pray. You need Him more than ever before, but somehow even God Himself seems on mute. Honest, heart-searching, and intensely personal, God on Mute looks at the hard side of prayer, how to respond when there seem to be no answers, and how to cope with those who seek to interpret our experience for us. Here is a story of faith, hope, and love beyond all understanding.

Excerpt


Titled after a Shakespearean sonnet, this uniquely encouraging book teaches us how to listen for God and remove those things from our lives that drown out his bold shouts, gentle whispers, and indeed, his meaningful silences.

Jeannette Clift George encourages us to "Never underestimate the silence of God. It is his chosen punctuation and his timing is perfect. We live in a noisy world. Sometimes God has to be silent to get us to hear him at all...Sometimes silence is in itself a virtue when words would cause damage. There are times...when silence carries sweeter messages than spoken words.

Excerpt


In his latest book, When Heaven Is Silent, Dr. Ed Montgomery masterfully grapples with the problem of how to maintain faith in the midst of crisis. Since crisis--in one form or another--is experienced by everyone, everywhere, his message is universally relevant. Montgomery goes beyond helping those who are dealing with disappointment, loss or tragedy; he also ministers eloquently to those who are simply having a hard time hearing the voice of God above the din of everyday circumstances. With disarming candor, he reveals how God has worked in his own life, empowering him to take the necessary and sometimes painful steps along the path to healing and wholeness. This poignant narrative offers much more than catharsis. The author's keen ability to provoke deep thought brings his reader face to face with the limitations of human wisdom. Knowing full well how a person's faith may falter when all seems lost, Pastor Montgomery gently and skillfully guides the reader to just the right scriptures--the principles and promises that set forth the sovereignty of God and make known His unfailing love. He also leads the way for persevering in prayer and pressing on in faith, even when it seems that heaven is silent; and he demonstrates how asking tough questions can result in divine breakthrough.

Excerpt


As Christians, many of us experience times in our spiritual lives when it feels like God is silent. For reasons we don't understand, we're unable to sense His presence, feel His comfort, or hear His direction. And although we may be following Him as best we know, our spiritual lives feel dry and He seems more distant than ever.

In Silent God, Joseph Bentz addresses the pain and bewilderment many feel when they can't hear God's voice. He examines the possible influences that can unknowingly invade our lives and block our ability to hear God. Bentz explains how the accumulation of all the noise of life can contribute to God's silence in our lives and shares valuable and practical ways to control the noise so we can hear God once again. He also explores ways God may use silence as a means of working out His spiritual purposes in our lives. He offers insight and understanding for persevering through the silence and reassures us that doing so will result in essential spiritual growth and a deeper commitment to Christ.

Silent God reveals a new understanding of the mystery and power of God and shows how to find Him through the silence and emerge with a greater sense of purpose and a deeper connection with Christ and His love.

Why doesn't God answer my prayers? If God is so powerful why does evil exist? And if He is so good, why do we suffer? Nonbelievers, and even Christians, are often troubled by questions about suffering, doubt, failure, and unanswered prayer. Yet careful, compassionate answers are hard to find, in part because evangelicals have not taken the life of the mind seriously enough. The intellectual currents of our day are just too strong for simplistic responses. In this book, William Lane Craig doesn't offer trite phrases or pat answers--he offers honest insights gained from a life of study and ministry. Readers in the midst of doubt and confusion will find real answers to these perplexing questions and learn to stand on the only sure foundation for hope--God Himself. This expanded new edition includes chapters on abortion and homosexuality to help readers know how to think about these volatile social issues.
