Called "the best preacher in the family," by her father, Billy Graham, Anne Graham Lotz speaks around the globe with the wisdom and the authority of years spent studying God's Word. In her latest book, Anne shares her heart and God's teachings on the universal problem of suffering.^Drawing her characteristically keen insights from the familiar story of Lazarus in the ninth and eleventh chapters of the Gospel of John, Anne offers Jesus' reassuring answers to our heartfelt cries for understanding: Why doesn't God care? Why does He let these things happen? Why me? Why doesn't God answer my prayers? Why didn't He protect me? Why doesn't He perform a miracle?^Why? helps us understand and deal with suffering while guiding us to the ultimate answer-the Savior who shares our grief and our tears.
Can you keep on trusting God when bad things are happening all around you-when the pain is sharp and the doubt is deep and it's impossible to see the sense in it all? You can do just that, says best-selling author and speaker Anne Graham Lotz, if you keep your eye on the big picture of who God is, what His purposes are, and just how passionately He cares about His children. Drawing her characteristically keen insights from her own life and from the familiar story of Mary, Martha, and Lazarus in the Gospel of John, Anne shows how God can use your most agonizing, baffling trials for your growth and His glory...and how, in the meantime, you can find comfort in His presence.
As the daughter of Billy and Ruth Bell Graham, Lotz, now a renowned speaker and author in her own right, has much for which to give thanks, and she knows it. Still, like any other person with a heartbeat, Lotz's life has been riddled with times of desperation and heartrending sorrow. The author of Just Give Me Jesus and My Heart's Cry openly reveals the struggle she's endured in attempting to make sense of death, disease and suffering. Drawing upon John 11, she retells the story of sisters Mary and Martha and the death and eventual resurrection of their brother, Lazarus. Throughout this pithy, passionate book, Lotz eloquently imagines the emotional and spiritual agony Martha in particular endured while waiting for Jesus to intervene. Searching believers will gratefully grab the hope Lotz imparts as she reinforces a foundational scriptural truth: no matter the circumstance, and even when facing certain defeat, one can trust God because of who he is. Skeptics notwithstanding, Lotz treats this topic with the respect it deserves. She does not answer everyone's "why's," nor does she offer pat answers to those who are hurting. Instead, she suggests to Christians that frequently pain is a requirement for our eventual good and God's ultimate glory. Dedicated to "those who have unanswered prayers," Lotz covers the scope of human suffering with prose that is sure to find its place among other classic works of faith.
