When the ground shakes, and a poor nation's economy is destroyed; when the waters rise, washing away a community's hopes and dreams; when a child suffers neglect and abuse; when violence tears apart nations: Where is God? If God is all powerful, and if each one of us is a beloved child of God, then how can God allow tragedy and suffering to infest his creation?

When we lift our prayers to God and no answer seems to come; when we earnestly seek to know the will of God for our lives, yet can't seem to discern it; when God seems far away: Where is God? If God counts the hairs on our head, and knows every sparrow that falls, why is finding and understanding God's will so difficult at times?

In Why?: Making Sense of God's Will best-selling author Adam Hamilton brings fresh insight to the age-old question of how to understand the will of God. Rejecting simplistic answers and unexamined assumptions, Hamilton addresses how we can comprehend God's plan for the world and ourselves.

    " Overall I really like this book by Adam Hamilton. Once again i don't agree with all of his conclusions but many of them are along the lines of my own theology. A great book that I used for a four week sermon series at my church. "

    " The author, a Methodist minister, addresses the question of how a loving and just God can allow tragedies and natural disasters in our lives. I think he does a really good job. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ashlee | 11/26/2013

    " I really like Adam Hamilton so that us probably why I lost interest and could not finish this book - I have already heard him say all this. However, if you are not familiar with this pastor and his common sense, today approach to religion it is worth picking up and perusing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Crystal | 11/25/2013

    " It gives you a better perspective and a logical reason for why bad things happen. This book helps you to have a better answer than "It was Gods Will". Would recommend for those who are discovering God and have questions. Seek and ye shall find. "

    " I really enjoyed this book. I've been so frustrated with the common view of "God's protection" and "God's will", and this book perfectly addressed so many of the things that have been bothering me. It is a really fast read, and I definitely recommend it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allison | 11/9/2013

    " Our pastor is doing a sermon series based on this book and we are attending a small group discussion reflecting the book and sermons. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole Ratzlaff | 11/7/2013

    " A good book with very thoughtful practical approach to why bad things happen to good people or why bad things happen at all. I have enjoyed his sermons and books on the topic and recommend to anyone wresting with these questions as it may help in your journey. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danielle Woods | 10/29/2013

    " Adam Hamilton always does an awesome bible study guide. This one was a bit more simple in context, but thought provocking none the less! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donna | 9/12/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ian Hastings | 5/17/2013

    " Quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. Has a way of explaining somethings pretty complicated in a simple way, yet still really rocking your world and your way of thinking. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erica Bruce | 3/4/2013

    " I picked this up when it was offered on Amazon for free because it looked interesting. I was always curious as to how some people could keep their faith when dealing with tragedy. I am not a Christian nor am I religious but I enjoyed this book. It was very well written, clear, and insightful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy Glass | 2/26/2013

    " Rev Hamilton has a very down to earth approach on discussing Christian views. He speaks 'to' people and not 'at' them. Thought provoking without being contradictory to Christian beliefs. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Preston | 2/21/2013

    " A solid introduction into theodicy from a mailine pastor "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thing Two | 12/17/2012

    " Short and grounded. Not at all the typical Christian book study. This one is logical, scriptural, and was liked by all 11 women in my Friday morning group (and that NEVER happens!) I'll definitely look for more writing by Adam Hamilton. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jerry Wicker | 11/16/2012

    " Short but excellent and well written. This book rightfully challenges many of the common misconceptions about the will of God. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian Hinde | 7/7/2012

    " a must read, anyone who had lost a love one. I started a men's group just to present this book. "
