Publisher's Description

Our lives are constantly changing. It's hard to keep up, to keep our balance. It's hard to keep trusting in God. And it's especially difficult when the changes we're faced with are unwanted: the death of a loved one, a child leaving home, an illness, a frustrated dream. Craig Barnes knows the dark side of change. As a pastor, he has counseled many Christians through tough times of transition. And he has been challenged by unwanted changes--interruptions--in his own life. At times it seems as though God has moved far, far away. But Barnes has discovered that just the opposite is true: during times of change and seeming abandonment, God is right at our side offering to lead us in a new direction, offering us new life. He writes, "A young widow can outlive her grief and decide her life may never be the same but is far from over. A lost job can become the beginning of a new vocation." Here is the book for all who have known disappointment, bereavement or the shattering of faith, a book all the more valuable because it promises hope without denying despair. In When God Interrupts a sensitive, insightful pastor shows us how we can be found by God in the middle of unwanted change.

    A serious read for anyone who finds themselves wrestling with God. This book was like a window to my soul. The author uses illustrations from his own life, from his pastorate and from scripture to describe our amazing God who Calls us to Himself. When the day of trouble comes where will you turn? My favorite passage: "As we struggle to understand and fearfully take God on, the promise is that we too will see his face. He does not give us the things we want. He does not give us explanations. He just gives us himself. In the church we call that discovery worship. And that, we believe, is the purpose of life."
