Publisher's Description

 

In this follow-up to his acclaimed debut, True Religion, Palmer Chinchen helps believers develop a God-centered response to suffering.
 
As Christians, we often act as if the right beliefs and behavior will allow us to avoid the darkness of pain. Yet everyone is touched by loneliness, heartbreak, and losing loved ones. And when pain happens, it can seem as if God is asleep, indifferent to our struggles.
 
In God Can’t Sleep, Chinchen tackles challenging questions: Where is God when life hurts? How long will I stay in darkness? When the world is so full of bad people, why do I have to suffer? Readers will be encouraged to embrace a Savior who is always awake, and inspire them to carry His light to a hurting world.

Publisher's Weekly

A former missionary kid in Liberia and now pastor in Arizona, Chinchen (True Religion) writes an all-in book about life lived full-on. This is not your father's theodicy; it aims higher than chirpy preacher platitudes and tells the stories of people in international settings from Haiti to Liberia who embody God's goodness to overcome evil in the world. Chinchen's chapter on heaven is powerful and moving, interweaving the little that Scripture has to say about it with God's "snapshots" of heaven on earth. His writing is low on religious sap and backed up with life experience. His fresh voice is as good as Rob Bell's or Donald Miller's, but a cut above them theologically, and he offers more authentic global stories to boot. The 20- and 30-something generation will devour this one like termites in a lumberyard. This isn't the next Blue Like Jazz; it's better. (June) Copyright 2011 Reed Business Information.
