|Should God be indicted and
put on trial for crimes against humanity? If God is so loving and all powerful,
why doesn’t he stop the pain? Philip Yancey frankly discusses “the problem
of pain” in the book Where Is God When It Hurts? He wrote, “I have
entered the world of the sufferer to find out what difference it makes
to be a Christian there.” He asks, “Is suffering God’s one great goof?”
Before you decide on your answer to these questions give Philip Yancey’s book a chance to present witnesses and evidence to consider.
Would you like to know how to help a sufferer?
Philip Yancey asks, “What can we do to help those who hurt? And who can
help us when we suffer?” “There is no magic cure,” according to the author,
but there are “specific and practical acts” of love that can help ease
the suffering we face.
“Where is God when it hurts?” If you don’t
know, or even if you think you do know, Philip Yancey presents an answer
that may be just what you need to hear.
