Product Description

In Disappointment with God, Yancey tackles the questions caused by a God who doesn't always do what we think he's supposed to do. Insightful and deeply personal, Yancey points to the odd disparity between our concept of God and the realities of life. Why, if God is so hungry for relationship with us, does he seem so distant? Why, if he cares for us, do bad things happen? What can we expect from him after all? Yancey answers these questions with clarity, richness, and biblical assurance.

A Gold Medallion Award Winner, Disappointment with God has had an overwhelming impact on many lives. If you're struggling through difficult questions about God, you'll find this volume indispensable.

Publisher's Description

Philip Yancey has a gift for articulating the knotty issues of faith. In Disappointment with God, he poses three questions that Christians wonder but seldom ask aloud: Is God unfair? Is he silent? Is he hidden? This insightful and deeply personal book points to the odd disparity between our concept of God and the realities of life. Why, if God is so hungry for relationship with us, does he seem so distant? Why, if God cares for us, do bad things happen? What can we expect from God after all? Yancey answers these questions with clarity, honesty, and biblical assurance. He points us beyond life’s disappointments and the cynicism they can breed to a stronger, wiser faith, a confidence in God’s deep love for us, and a thirst to reach not just for what God gives, but for who God is.

    Not what I expected

    Rosa Gay
    I expected more of a focus on how to overcome being disappointed when we feel God isn't answering our prayers. This is not what the book is about.

    Other than the Bible this book has made the biggest impact on my faith & the lies & misinformation I had believed about why God allowed suffering. Phillip completely flipped my view on the book of Job. For me this is Phillip's best work. It changed my life.
