Summary

Have you ever felt like God has let you down just when you needed him most? For Alex Gee it was the loss of his second child at birth. For others it is death, divorce, financial ruin, physical disability or a host of other trials we face in the world. In these moments of crisis our view of God is challenged and our faith is shaken. With refreshing candor in this book Alex Gee offers true companionship not easy answers as you search for the way to hope. Market/Audience ABA readers African Americans CBA readers General readers Features and Benefits Allows us to ask the hard questions of God such as: when we are "good" and follow God, why do we still experience pain? Includes powerful examples from the author's own life to show how to process pain. Author is on a journey with us, rather than "having all the answers". Shows how the author's Pentecostal faith created a breach between him and God when he didn't receive the answers he wanted to his prayers.
