Publisher's Description

Kalas offers a challenging and hopeful reflection on a conundrum that every human being deals with at some time in life, usually when facing a horrible tragedy, the death of a loved one, or the simple grinding pain of everyday existence: Why does God allow such suffering to exist? Is our pain God's will?

Pastors, students, and general readers will all benefit from the reflections of this seasoned pastor and theologian as he explores the concept of the will of God in a shattered and stubborn world.

Editorial Reviews

"Not all of us can be theologians who are as bright and faithful as Ellsworth Kalas, but Kalas still wants to make good theologians of us all. In this book, Kalas tackles an eternally pressing subject: the will of God. With pastoral sensitivity and with thought based in biblical tradition and Christian orthodoxy, Kalas leads us well. As he teaches he coaxes us to a deeper relationship with Christ, the one who taught us to pray, 'nevertheless, not my will but thine be done.'" William H. Willimon, Bishop, United Methodist Church, and author of United Methodist Beliefs
"In the face of earthquakes, tsunamis, oil spills, terrorism, cancer and car wrecks, Ellsworth Kalas exclaims, "Don't blame God!" A thoughtful, engaging, and ultimately hopeful book on understanding God's will." Martin Thielen, author of What's the Least I Can Believe and Still Be a Christian?
