If we are honest, we have to admit that there are many things we don’t understand about God. We do not have final answers to the deep problems of life, and those who say they do are probably living in some degree of delusion. There are areas of mystery in our Christian faith that lie beyond the keenest scholarship or even the most profound spiritual exercises. For many people, these problems raise so many questions and uncertainties that faith itself becomes a struggle, and the very person and character of God are called into question. Chris Wright encourages us to face up to the limitations of our understanding and to acknowledge the pain and grief they can often cause. But at the same time, he wants us to be able to say, like the psalmist in Psalm 73: “But that’s all right. God is ultimately in charge and I can trust him to put things right. Meanwhile, I will stay near to my God, make him my refuge, and go on telling of his deeds.” Download and start listening now!

    " I heard him speak a week ago and it compelled me to start reading his book... such a wonderful, simple thought process of not WHY there's suffering in the world... but the deeper realities about asking God such questions... "

    " Honest reflections on the nagging questions of Christianity that leads us to a better understanding of who we are and fosters growth in our relationship with the God even though we don't understand everything. "

    " This is one of books where deals with difficult passages in the bible and the way he approaches them is interesting. A must to read for every Christian. "

    " A very good book which is a decent theodicy, but seems to go off in another direction (soteriology and eschatology) quickly. Still reading it so we'll see if he comes back to what I thought would be the theme throughout. "
