by Philip Yancey – Zondervan
Bestselling author Philip Yancey tackles questions Christians often wonder but seldom ask aloud. In his illuminating exploration, he uncovers true, real, and lasting hope in the midst of your darkness that will produce an even stronger faith than you had before.
Do you feel like you’ve been let down by God? Abandoned by the One who was supposed to come to your rescue when you needed it most?
You’ve come to the right place. Philip Yancey has a gift for articulating and answering some of the most honest, complex issues of faith. In this 25th Anniversary edition of Disappointment with God, Yancey poses three questions that Christians wonder but rarely feel permission to voice:
- If God is so hungry for relationship with us, why does he seem so distant?
- If God cares for us, why do bad things happen?
- If God’s promises are true, why do they feel so far off from personal experience?
With clarity, honesty, and biblical assurance, this insightful and deeply personal book shows you the light in the midst of darkness–the hope that God offers right in the middle of life’s disappointments. Yancey points you beyond the cynicism that is often bred in hardship to a stronger, wiser faith, a confidence in God’s deep love, and a thirst to reach not just for what God gives, but for who God is.
Included in this anniversary edition is a study guide with questions about these perplexing crises of faith that the author confronts.
