“Is God listening?”

“Can he be trusted?”

In this book, Yancey tackles the questions caused by a God who doesn’t always do what we think he’s supposed to.

Philip Yancey has a gift for articulating the knotty issues of faith. In Disappointment with God, he poses three questions that Christians wonder but seldom ask aloud: Is God unfair? Is he silent? Is he hidden? This insightful and deeply personal book points to the odd disparity between our concept of God and the realities of life. Why, if God is so hungry for relationships with us, does he seem so distant? Why, if he cares for us, do bad things happen? What can we expect from him after all? Yancey answers these questions with clarity, richness, and biblical assurance. He takes us beyond the things that make for disillusionment to a deeper faith, a certitude of God’s love, and a thirst to reach not just for what God gives, but for who he is.

    " This book was a epic point in my life and revived my faith. I'll forever be thankful to Yancey for this one. He quickly became my favorite author with this book as the foundation. "

    " Philip Yancey engages the perennial puzzler of an all-good, all-powerful God that allows all manner of seemingly senseless tragedies and misfortunes to befall the world he has created. The book is essentially divided into two parts, the first taking a look at Old Testament history from God's point of view, and the second part engaging the book of Job and the problem of pain from humanity's point of view. I'd say the first part was certainly the stronger, perhaps due to the novelty of thinking about human history from God's perspective. The second part was alright-- it feels to me that Yancey is very good at posing difficult questions, but sometimes he has a hard time providing satisfying answers to the enigmas he has articulated so well. (Of course, the questions he's asking are very, very difficult.) In any event, although this book was a good, thoughtful read, if someone was interested in the topic, I'd recommend instead Yancey's more recent book on Prayer, which tackled many of the same issues in what I think is a more effective manner. "

    " Not one of Yancey's best, but a worthy read nonetheless. He raises thought-provoking points (as always) throughout the book. "

    " I'm still reading this book. I'm not too far into it yet, it started out interesting and has slowed down a bit so I'm trying to stick with it because I have heard it's a good book. "
