Suffering, sin, illness, loneliness, disappointment all come in an endless variety of shapes and sizes. Deserted by God begins with the question ?Can anyone help me?.

Suffering, failure, sin, illness, loneliness, disappointment. They all come in a seemingly endless variety of shapes and sizes. At times there seems to be no way to turn, either backwards or forwards: there is no light at either end of the tunnel. For many peole such experiences raise the question: Why has this happened to me? Has God abandoned me? Can nobody help? Is despair all that is left to me? But here is an answer... In fact there is a whole series of answers. It shows how others have walked the same pathway before us. They provide us with wisdom which will lead us to the conviction of the closing chapter that we are 'Never Deserted'.
