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 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. He takes us beyond the things that make for disillusionment to a deeper faith, a certitude of God's love, and a thirst to reach not just for what God gives, but for who he is.

    This review was written for Disappointment with God.
    This was a meaty book. It showed how different people struggle with apparent injustices of this mortal life.

    At times of our greatest need he often seems absent or silent so we doubt his love for us.

    He gives examples of people, who at one time or another feel that God is not there or is not listening.

    Through many examples

    Yancey shows us that though at times God may seem far away, he is still there. It is our perceptions

    that distort what is true. Yancey has a poetic way of showing the frailties of man and his dependence on

    a God who often seems to not be there. I can't do justice to explaining the profound thoughts in this book.

    I highly recommend any works by this author.

    Not what I expected
    February 1, 2011
    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.
