Product Description

"If there is a loving God, then why ... ?" No matter how the question is completed, at its root lies the issue of pain. Does God order suffering? Or did he simply wind up the world's mainspring and now is watching from a distance?

In this Gold Medallion Award-winning book, now revised and updated, Where is God When It Hurts reveals a God who is neither capricious nor unconcerned. Using examples from the Bible and from his own experiences, Yancey looks at pain---physical, emotional, and spiritual---and helps us understand why we suffer. Includes discussion guide.

Publisher's Description

An inspirational classic for more than thirty years, Where Is God When It Hurts? honestly explores pain--from physical wounds to emotional and spiritual pain--and sheds new light on God's presence in our suffering.

"How can a loving God allow this to happen? God is either all-loving or all-powerful, but he can't be both."

You've heard that question, and perhaps you've even asked it yourself. When a loved one dies, we receive a terminal diagnosis, or natural disasters strike, people often wonder whether God is the cause of suffering and why he doesn't immediately take away the pain or fix the situation. As a result, we become angry at the once-beloved God who betrayed us.

In this Gold Medallion Award-winning book, bestselling author Philip Yancey uses examples from the Bible and from his own experiences to show us how we can learn to accept--without blame, anger, or fear--that which we don't understand. Along the way, he answers questions such as:

  • Why is there such a thing as pain?
  • Is pain a message from God?
  • How should we respond to suffering?
  • How can we learn to cope with pain?

With over one million copies already sold, Where Is God When It Hurts? speaks to everyone who thinks that suffering doesn't make sense. With compassion and clarity, Yancey brings us one step closer to finding an answer when our pain, or the pain of those we love, is real and we are left wondering, where is God when it hurts?

Praise for Where Is God When It Hurts?:

"One of the most helpful treatments of the problem of evil that I've ever read. If I were looking around for something to give to individuals who are going through travail or difficulty, this is the book I'd recommend."

--Dr. Vernon Grounds, former Chancellor of Denver Seminary
