Publisher's Description

Why?

Why do bad things happen if God is so good? The answer is within these pages.

Even When Bad Things Happen, God Is Good addresses the age-old philosophical question: Why is there tribulation in the world if God is good?

Along with other classics addressing this perplexing question such as The Problem of Pain by C.S. Lewis and The Wounded Healer by Henri Nouwen, Dr. Leary E. Bonnett sensitively explores this very common question with the skill and spiritual experience of a person deeply committed to helping you learn to trust God in every circumstance.

Reshaping the way you think, act, and react to problems impacting your life empowers you to be in control—under God’s grace and mercy. Everyone experiences adversity at some time along life’s journey, but when you have concrete steps showing you how to partner with God, you can unshackle yourself from the throes of troubles.

You will be inspired to live a more meaningful life, in thought and deed, and make God a personal reality in your life—starting today!

Editorial Reviews

Even When Bad Things happen God is still Good is theologically realistic, biblically grounded, Holy Spirit Centered, full of psychological wisdom, and a very positive resource for addressing the lives of people facing tribulation. It is written, and speaks to the needs of the 21st century church.
     -Dr. Edward P. Wimberley, Professor of Pastoral care of Interdenominational Theological Center Atlanta, Georgia


Rev. Leary E. Bonnett has given us another gift.  He has dared to accept the divine invitation to envision "what else" instead of surrendering to the deadening status quo of "what is."
      -Dale T. Irvin, President and Professor of World Christianity,  New York Theological Seminary


This book is a resource for church men and women who are ministering with members of congregations who are facing catastrophe events in their lives. Dr. Bonnett's book offers an opportunity for the church to have dialogue around the biblical question of theordicy.
      -Eleanor Moody-Shepherd, New York Theological Seminary

    "Even When Bad Things Happen, God is Good - Trusting God When it Hurts the Most" is a combination; theological treatise, an inspiration devotional guide, a motivational case study, and a spiritual discipline handbook. Readers can expect to receive insights from Leary Bonnett's teaching that will embolden and stretch them in their faith journey.

    Bonnett provides thought provoking, step by step. Rich and meaningful lessons and guidance on building character traits of : humility, hope, faith, patience, and love while developing spiritual discipline, and putting faith into action using examples, and principles rooted in God's Word. These lessons are authenticated by his personal life and ministry.

    I was challenged by Bonnett's , Biblical authenticity, articulate communication style, his intellect, and credibility. I appreciated his careful detail in research and formatting , his descriptive word pictures, relevant examples and illustrations, and the continuity of his presentation

    The thought reflection questions presented at the end of each chapter are designed to be used for personal mediation, spiritual mentoring, or as a small group discussion study guide.

    "Even When Bad Things Happen, God is Good" is an excellent resource for Pastors, Counselors, and Laymen ministering to individuals and families who are facing crisis and difficult times.

    A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Leary E. Bonnett
Located in: Brooklyn, New York
Submitted: May 27, 2013

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I was born and raised in Guyana. And I am the second of six siblings. I emigrated to the United States of America at age 17 and attended college. After college I spent the next eleven years in the US Army, two as an enlisted soldier and nine as a commissioned officer. I completed a master of arts degree in human resources development while on active military duty. After separating from the armed services with the rank of Major and several outstanding decorations I completed a masters of divinity degree and later completed a doctor of ministry degree. I am the founder of Silence The Guns, a non profit addressing the proliferation of guns in the urban community. I am an ordained minister, a college professor, husband and father.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I was impacted by adversity at age fourteen when my younger brother of two years was killed by a drunken driver. I was also impacted by the death of two children, and the loss of service-members while in the military. I was able to cope with the adversity which impacted my life by anchoring my faith in a God who cares about and loves me.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I want people to realize that life does not end with adversity and that it is not what life throws at us but how we respond to what life throws at us.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  My faith was deepened because through research and dedication to the project God provided me with insights that stretched my faith.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  A few of my favorite influences are my pastor, mother and General Colin Powell who was one of my mentors in the 101st Airborne Division and who played a big role in me attending Officers Candidate School from which I graduated as a Second Lieutenant. I receive inspiration from writers such as Thomas Merton, C,S. Lewis, Dr. Edward Wimberley, Howard Thurman, Simone Weil, and David Benner.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  I was a track and field champion in my native Guyana and competed in track and field athletics for the US Army in Europe. I would like to climb Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Everest in the near future.
