Where is God when it Hurts

By Philip Yancey

This perennial best-seller about the question of suffering is now available in a special anniversary edition.

"If there is a loving God, then why . . . ?" No matter how the question is completed, at its root lies the issue of pain. Does God order suffering? Or did he simply wind up the world's mainspring and now is watching from a distance?

In this Gold Medallion Award-winning book, Philip Yancey reveals a God who is neither capricious nor unconcerned. Using examples from the Bible and from his own experiences, Yancey looks at pain - physical, emotional, and spiritual - and helps us understand why we suffer.
