God Is Not Fair and Other Reasons for Gratitude is a collection of essays in which Franciscan friar Dan Horan demonstrates that the Christian life is most often focused on the counterintuitive and gratuitous foolishness of God's love revealed in the healing of the broken and brokenhearted, forgiving the unforgiveable, and loving the unlovable.

Like Jesuss early followers, the ethical implications of Jesuss words and deeds for those of us who would follow him are not always whats expected of us. But the risk of appearing foolish never stopped "Gods Fool," St. Francis of Assisi, from embracing the Gospel as best he could, protesting the injustices of certain social systems, and letting nothing get in the way of his relationship with others.
God Is Not Fair and Other Reasons for Gratitude addresses what it means to follow Christ in the modern world, opens up the Gospels to explore what Jesus has to say to our situations and predicaments, and delves into what it means to faithfully live by vowscounterculturallytoday.
"Usually the Best of album appears several decades into an artists career, but Dan Horans collection of articles and essays emerges in the early years of his third decade of life. This gathering of insight expresses the writers thoughts as a disciple of Jesus, a talented theologian, and a committed Franciscan. This collection is sure to captivate, provoke, inspire, and challenge." Stephen J. Binz, biblical theologian, writer, and speaker at www.Bridge-B.com
"In this compelling book, one of my favorite spiritual writers offers wisdom through an array of topics that, while broad in focus, draw us back again and again to the same foundation: the transforming call to love God and love others with all that we have. Dan Horan has written a book accessible and valuable for every reader." Jamie Arpin-Ricci, pastor, Little Flowers Community, Winnipeg, and author of Vulnerable Faith
"It takes a sage to see that God is not fairand that for this we should be grateful! It is almost as if to say, Read if you dare. More fitting, I suggest, is Read if you care. If you care to see how the lens of Christian discipleship really does open us to a deeper understanding of the hopes and dreams, the sufferings and fears of contemporary culture. If you care to see how even a few words of Scripture have the power to resonate and challenge, to speak to our hearts, to comfort and challenge and change us. If you care to reimagine the meaning of vocation, to see that regardless of your state in life, Christ calls you to bear witness to the Gospel in the world in a way that you and only you can do." -Mary Stommes, editor, Give Us This Day
