When the ground shakes, and a poor nation 's economy is destroyed; whenthe waters rise, washing away a community 's hopes and dreams; when a child suffersneglect and abuse; when violence tears apart nations; where is God If God is allpowerful, and if each one of us is a beloved child of God, then how can God allowtragedy and suffering to infest his creation

When we lift ourprayers to God, and no answer seems to come; when we earnestly seek to know the willof God for our lives, yet can't seem to discern it; when God seems far away; whereis God? If God counts the hairs on our head, and knows every sparrow that falls, whyis finding and understanding God's will so difficult at times? InWhy? Making Sense of God's Will best-selling author AdamHamilton brings fresh insight to the age-old question of how to understand the willof God. Rejecting simplistic answers and unexamined assumptions, Hamilton addresseshow we can comprehend God 's plan for the world and ourselves. Chapters include: 1. Why Do the Innocent Suffer? 2. Why Do MyPrayers Go Unanswered? 3. Why Can'tI See God's Will for My Life? 4. Why God'sLove Prevails When it comes to the weightiestproblems for our faith, like suffering and unanswered prayers and God 's will, philosophers don t get the job done for me. But thoughtful pastors do. For me, theone thoughtful pastor who offers wisdom for our deepest questions is Adam Hamilton.This book is a rare gift and the kind of book that needs to be close at hand for allChristians. This book proves theology has to be done by pastors. ScotMcKnight, author of A Community Called Atonement

As someone for whom the Christian answers I grew up with failed tosatisfy the troubling questions of my adulthood, I deeply appreciate Adam Hamilton sthoughtful book Why? I recommend this book to anyone who longsto leave behind simplistic answers and discover a God who invites them into acollaborative process of bringing redemption, love and hope to a world in desperateneed. Lynne Hybels, author of Nice Girls Don t Change theWorld Unlike many Christian writers thesedays, Adam Hamilton does actually make sense of God 's will. This is a profoundlysatisfying treatment of common misconceptions about God. Everyone who asks Why when confronted with evil, innocent suffering, unanswered prayers, and failure toperceive God 's will should read this book. Roger Olson, author ofQuestions to All Your Answers
