Book Review: When You Ask Why by Daniel Johnson
I have to admit I wasn’t sure where this book was going at first…but I ended up pleasantly surprised.
I appreciated the way Daniel Johnson summed up the answer to the question, “Where is God in the suffering?”. He answers it thusly: “God does not cause the tragedy and terror that stalk the earth. He allows it, He employs it for our good; but He does not cause it, nor is it His will.” (p.50)
For the presently grieving—reading this book in the throes of grief will help you to feel understood. It will give you comfort and it will give you instructions on how to navigate through the grief process.
For friends of the grieving—this book will help you understand those that are grieving and will give you instructions on how best to comfort them.
If you or your friends are not presently grieving, you will be some day. Be prepared ahead of time for this inevitable fact and go get yourself a copy of this book.
