Where is God when tragedy and suffering strike?
When the ground shakes, and a poor nations economy is destroyed; when the waters rise, washing away a communitys hopes and dreams; when a child suffers neglect and abuse; when violence tears apart nations; where is God? If God is all powerful, and if each one of us is a beloved child of God, then how can God allow tragedy and suffering to infest his creation?
In Why?, best-selling author Adam Hamilton brings fresh insight to the age-old question of how to understand the will of God. Rejecting simplistic answers and unexamined assumptions, he lays out core ideas for comprehending Gods plan for the world, including:
God will not take away our free will, even when we use it to grieve him.
God will never abandon us, especially in the midst of our suffering.
While God is not the author of suffering, God will bring blessing out of tragedy.
Hamilton is the best-selling and award-winning author of The Call, The Journey, The Way, 24 Hours That Changed the World, John, Revival, Not a Silent Night, Enough, When Christians Get It Wrong, and Seeing Gray in a World of Black and White, all published by Abingdon Press.

LoneStranger5 Stars Out Of 5So Many QuestionsSeptember 6, 2016LoneStrangerQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5How do pastors reconcile faith with experience? Adam Hamilton presents an honest, concise and cogent survey of the troubling issues challenging the faith of many Christians, tempered by his personal experiences, study, prayer and reflection. Of course, it is impossible to fully rationalize God through mortal minds, leaving some things to trust and obedience alone. But Hamilton does provide a framework for better understanding human suffering, unanswered prayers and God's guiding presence in our lives in sensible propositions based on scriptural truths and personal witness. Ultimately, Hamilton anchors his understanding on faith in the ultimate power and love of God for humankind, and His desire for us to seek eternal fellowship with him through steadfast faith in the risen Lord, manifest in righteous living made possible by grace, and through mutual love and support for each other.

I enjoyed it so much that I recommended it to my Sunday school class and now we are using it for our class study. I disagreed with the author on a couple of issues, but overall found the book to be sound scripturally. The author really gives you food for thought and discussion.

Anne Baxter CampbellWillows, CAAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5"Why" questions answeredMarch 1, 2013Anne Baxter CampbellWillows, CAAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4A friend of mine handed me this book a short time back knowing how I admire Adam Hamilton's sermons and writings. He is the senior pastor of The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, Kansas.
WHY? is a small book, only about a third of an inch thick, about four inches wide by seven high, but it's packed with wisdom from cover to cover.
The book is dedicated to two friends Pastor Hamilton held in high regard, Gary and Danny Patterson. The two suffered what he classified as "an untimely death," and the book is Pastor Hamilton's attempt to make sense of their senseless deaths.
He talks about why innocents suffer, why prayers seem to go unanswered, why God's will seems obscure, and why God's love prevails. If these questions have plagued you, too, you might want to pick up a copy.
