Why?

Sharon Dirckx

$13.99

Paperback
Also Available In

Suffering and tragedy can cause us all to ask 'Why?'

- Why do bad things happen?
- If God exists, why doesn't he do something?
- Why am I being singled out?

Of all the hurdles to faith, surely suffering must be the greatest. It tears lives apart and raises questions for us all. But when we ask 'why?, to whom are we addressing our question? Where do the most satisfying answers come from? Does it matter?

Sharon Dirckx unpacks our questions sensitively and wisely, weaving her arguments with real-life stories of anguish and pain. She concludes, 'I would like to show you that, even though we don't understand everything, it is still possible to believe in a powerful, loving God and acknowledge the reality of evil and suffering. Not only that, but seeing life from this perspective helps us make more, not less, sense of our hurting world.'

While we may never have all the answers, it does not mean that there are no answers at all.
