Thirty-five years ago when Philip Yancey's classic book Where Is God When It Hurts? was published, he explored the deeper questions of suffering and faith. Since that time, Yancey has continued to ask difficult questions and visited the places and people where tragedy touches most closely.
In The Question That Never Goes Away, he considers the plight of those devastated by the December 2013 shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, the 2011 tsunami in Japan, and the civil war in former Yugoslavia. While many who read his observations may not have directly faced the fallout of such calamities, we all face challenges to faith. As Yancey shares his experiences in places of difficulty and suffering, you'll find the strength to face your own trials, and move closer to God instead of away.

Finding Meaning in the Midst of Suffering
In his classic book Where Is God When It Hurts, Philip Yancey gave us permission to doubt, reasons not to abandon faith, and practical ways to reach out to hurting people.
And now, thirty years after writing his first book, Yancey revisits our cry of Why, God in three places stunned into silence by the calamities that have devastated them. At some point all of us will face the challenges to faith Yancey writes about and look for the comfort and hope he describes.
There are reasons to ask, once again, the question that never goes away: Where is God when we suffer? And Yancey, once again, leads us to find faith when it is most severely put to the test.
Philip Yancey serves as editor-at-large for Christianity Today magazine. He has written thirteen Gold Medallion Award-winning books and won two ECPA Book of the Year awards for What's So Amazing About Grace? and The Jesus I Never Knew. Four of his books have sold over one million copies. Yancey lives with his wife in Colorado. Website: www.philipyancey.com

mojoTexasAge: 35-44Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5A great resource for hurting peopleMarch 5, 2014mojoTexasAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4This lenten season, I decided to teach the book of Job to my congregation, which means I took the obvious route and decided to think about "Why do bad things happen to good people?" Philip Yancy's new book "The Question that Never Goes Away" addresses this very primal question.
Why do tsunamis happen and why do planes crash into buildings? Why do people die before their time? And why do gunmen storm into school yards and shoot little children? And then - if these things happen in our world - WHY does God allow them? WHY doesn't He stop them? WHY does it seem like there is so much evil in the world?
Back in 1997 Yancey wrote a book called "Where is God when it hurts" and since that time he has been invited all across the globe to share his perspective on the all-loving God who allows human suffering. This new book, "The Question that Never Goes Away" is Yancy's sequel and his reflections since writing that first volume.
Filled with relevant and recent topics, Yancey does a terrific job attempting to offer solace and comfort in a world that seems out of control.
Yancey has an easy to read "story-tellers" voice and this would make a great gift for that certain someone in your life that is climbing a difficult mountain, or enduring a darkened road. Well recommended.
