Book Study: Why? Making Sense of God’s Will, by Adam Hamilton

Where is God when tragedy and suffering strike?

                 When the ground shakes, and a poor nation’s economy is destroyed; when the waters rise, washing away a community’s hopes and dreams; when a child suffers neglect and abuse; when violence tears   apart nations; where is God?  If God is all powerful, and if each one of us is a beloved child of God, then how can God allow tragedy and suffering to infest his creation? 

                 In Why?, best-selling author Adam Hamilton brings fresh insight to the age-old question of how to understand the will of God. Rejecting simplistic answers and unexamined assumptions, he lays out core   ideas for comprehending God’s plan for the world, including:  

                                God will not take away our free will, even when we use it to grieve him.
God will never abandon us, especially in the midst of our suffering.
While God is not the author of suffering, God will bring blessing out of tragedy

Pastor Mickey will be holding a five week Book Study beginning Wednesday, October, 25th at 6:00 pm in the Library;  Books will be available in the Library; Call/Email the Office to reserve your copy.
