The Fox News Commentator and Catholic Priest Explores the Central Question for Hard Times: Why Does God Allow Us to Suffer?
Father Jonathan Morris is a Catholic priest in the Archdiocese of New York and serves in campus ministry at Columbia University. He is also an analyst for the Fox News Channel and host of the News & Views program on The Catholic Channel, SiriusXM. His books include the New York Times bestseller The Way of Serenity, God Wants You Happy, and The Promise: God's Purpose and Plan for When Life Hurts.
“Father Jonathan has allowed the reader entrance into his private study where he welcomes and converses with us on a personal yet riveting journey. His spiritual insight is profound!”
“With true compassion Father Jonathan Morris tackles a reality we will all confront sooner or later...His specific advice shows all of us how to turn tragedy and pain into spiritual gifts that can actually heal us in unexpected ways. Here’s a Promise worth keeping, and sharing with others.”
“Easy to understand, with stories that everybody can identify with, The Promise left me with a better understanding of God’s way, when life hurts. I’ve already given a copy to someone who is suffering a personal challenge...”
“...Pope John Paul II spoke often and eloquently about the meaning of suffering. Father Morris has written a wonderful sequel to the Holy Father’s thoughts, but from a very different perspective: that of a young priest; a man of energy, insight, world experience and engaging popular style.”
“The Promise will be for the book world what The Passion was for film--a watershed moment of inspired creativity capable of transforming lives from the inside out. Don’t believe me? Ask my wife, she read it too and is already passing it on to family and friends.”
“The Promise is a must read for those experiencing life’s difficult trials. Clearly, Father Jonathan is fast establishing himself as one of the most respected religious figures of our times.”

Father Jonathan has SO much insight and wisdom, and I love how he keeps the reader focused on Jesus, not just the pain. I picked up this book at the library, and I feel God led me to it. I am impressed by his compassion and his humility. He deals with pain and suffering, yet constantly reminds the reader to ask God to show him/her how to deal with it. He also uses Scripture to help renew our minds. I like that! It's not psychology! He acknowledges that pain and suffering are real, but points to Jesus our healer, at every turn. (However, I don't hold 100% to the teaching on "offering our suffering" to God). Other than that, this book is a must read for anyone who has ever been hurt or going through suffering. I would actually go as far to say that it's a must read for ANYONE at all! Sometimes we carry pain and insecurity that we don't even realize. This book has challenged me to go deeper with Christ. My husband is reading it next. My favorite quote in the entire book is when he compares loving Jesus: we can either love Jesus with our "whole being" or just love him as "icing on MY cake". The difference between it being about HIM or ME. Great book!
