Where was God when that happened? – [Christopher Ash]
This series ‘Questions Christians Ask’ is absolute dynamite. These short accessible books written by an array of stellar authors offer both digestible systematic theology and wonderful pastoral wisdom.
This one on evil and suffering is so helpful. This is a little book that packs a big punch. It is a very pastoral and Biblical exploration of one of the most common questions Christians ask when calamity strikes.
In Christopher’s own words – ‘this book may help armchair questioners, but it is mainly for wheelchair questioners, those who cry with tears of pain and perplexity in the misery of a messed up world.’
The Bible teaching in this book is helpful and profound, Christopher’s pastoral insights are tremendous and winsome. For those struggling to comprehend their turmoil and stand firm under it this book is a strengthening hand and a warm theological hug.
This book will be so helpful for those in your congregation who are hurting and also those seeking to minister to others who are hurting. This is a great series that used well can further people’s understanding and strengthen their faith enormously.
