"Yes, my name is Alex Gee, my wife is nineteen weeks pregnant and I think her water just broke! This is her second pregnancy, and...we lost our first baby just like this..."
"Sir? Hello? Sir? Try to stay calm. Who is your wife's OB/GYN?"
"It's Dr. Koller! Uh...My wife is losing more fluid...Hurry!"
Oh God, this isn't happening again. I can't handle another loss like this. Let this be a dream! Please let this be a dream!
Have you ever felt like God has let you down just when you needed him most? For Alex Gee it was the loss of his second child at birth. For others it is death, divorce, financial ruin, physical disability or a host of other trials we face in the world.
In these moments of crisis our view of God is challenged and our faith is shaken. With refreshing candor in this book Alex Gee offers true companionship---though not easy answers---as you search for the way to hope.
Alex Gee is pastor of Fountain of Life Family Worship Center and president and founder of the Nehemiah Community Development Corporation, both in Madison, Wisconsin. He also serves as an adjunct professor, lecturer, and diversity consultant at Seattle Pacific University.

When Grief Comes: Finding Strength for Today and Hope for TomorrowKirk H. NeelyBaker Books / 2007 / Trade Paperback$14.00
This little book is devoid of self-pity, instead offering the reader a way to trust God in our darkest hours.
" When God Lets You Down addresses a subject that few Christians dare approach--profound anger and disappointment with God. Alex takes us on an intimate heartbreaking journey with him that encourages readers to know that their honest expression of anger with God is the beginning of their healing process. Gripping . . . brutally honest account of how this man wrestled God for his faith."
"This is not a story for people who like easy answers or quick fixes. But I can testify to the fact that it is a true story. It is the story of a 'man of God' who almost ceased to be one--and whose life was changed forever, by the God whom he nearly abandoned. And it is a story still being written."
"Alex Gee is a pastor, activist and writer whose writing nourishes the soul. He is a man whose vital faith honors the complexity of life while never evading the bracing simplicity of the gospel challenge. He is a Christian whose convictions have been made manifest in countless works of community building that strengthen the weakest among us and throw bridges across our divides. And he is a writer who does not exhort but models--revealing his own struggles, sufferings, weaknesses and failures, all the while testifying to the tenacity of God's grace. I know your life will be enriched, as mine has been, by Alex's life and work through this probing and faith-filled book."
