Philip Yancey has a gift for articulating the knotty issues of faith. In Disappointment with God, he poses three questions that Christians wonder but seldom ask aloud: Is God unfair? Is he silent? Is he hidden?
This insightful and deeply personal audiobook points to the odd differences between our concept of God and the realities of life. Why, if God is so hungry for relationship with us, does he seem so distant? Why, if he cares for us, do bad things happen? What can we expect from him after all? Yancey answers these questions with clarity, depth, and biblical assurance. He takes us beyond the things that disillusion us and prevent us from experiencing a deeper faith, the certainty of God’s love, and the thirst to reach not just for what God gives, but for who he is. This audiobook comes with study questions for every chapter.
