The author parallels the troubles confronting modern man with the travails of Job and the abandonment suffered by Christ, then describes the "intimate voice of God"--a voice that is too often mistaken for silence.

Is God unfair? Is he silent? Is he hidden? In this profoundly personal book, these questions are answered with clarity, richness, and biblical certainty. Philip Yancey points to the odd disparity between our concept of God and the realities of life. Disappointment with God takes us beyond the things that make for disillusionment to a deeper faith, a certitude of God's love, and a thirst to reach not just for what God gives, but for who he is.From the Author:
