If you have never asked this question, you someday will.
There is perhaps no greater challenge to our faith than personal suffering. For pastor Ed Underwood this challenge came in the form of chronic leukemia. Though he prayed for and believed in God's healing, as the days slipped by and his pain became unbearable, Ed's heart was broken by a simple realization: The God who could do anything was not helping him. Yet a revelation from God's Word changed his heart and life forever.
In this poignant journey from tragedy to hope, Ed takes a fresh look at the story of Lazarus and his sistersa story that explores suffering through the eyes of our Lord and His people. You'll find comfort during difficulty, be inspired to ask for the impossible, and discover a God whose heart breaks with yours.

I especially liked the commentary on John 11. This is one of my favorite passages and Ed digs deep to help us relate and understand to the story of Lazarus and his family. The prayers that are included brought me to tears -- they contain the thoughts, fears, and sorrows that I could not express and I found both great comfort and great connect with my Heavenly Father in reading them. I will refer to this book many times and suggest it to friends.

Places where fear, pain or tragedy threaten to extinguish our faith and our trust in a God of love.Ed expertly, and with spiritual insight rarely seen, intertwines his story and others along with the story of Lazarus and his sisters Mary and Martha to remind us that God is in the midst of our greatest anguish. God's love never fails. Even when we turn our back on Him he is there.Get a copy of "When God Breaks Your Heart". Ed's story is a beautiful example of God using an obedient heart to speak to others and has the power to change your life.
