Lotz – Why? Trusting God when you don’t understand

CELC

Lotz

Personal Author:
Lotz, Anne Graham, 1948-
Title:
Why? : trusting God when you don’t understand / by Anne Graham Lotz.
Publication info:
Nashville, TN : W Pub. Group, c2004.
Physical description:
xvi, 141 p. ; 19 cm.
Summary:

Called “the best preacher in the family,” by her father, Billy Graham, Anne Graham Lotz speaks around the globe with the wisdom and the authority of years spent studying God’s Word. In her latest book, Anne shares her heart and God’s teachings on the universal problem of suffering.

Drawing her characteristically keen insights from the familiar story of Lazarus in the ninth and eleventh chapters of the Gospel of John, Lotz offers Jesus’ reassuring answers to our heartfelt cries for understanding:

  • Why doesn’t God care?
  • Why does He let these things happen?
  • Why me?
  • Why doesn’t God answer my prayers?
  • Why didn’t He protect me?
  • Why doesn’t He perform a miracle?

Why? helps us understand and deal with suffering while guiding us to the ultimate answer-the Savior who shares our grief and our tears.
