    If there is a loving God, then why is it that...? You've heard that question, perhaps asked it yourself. No matter how you complete it, at its root lies the issue of pain.Does God order our suffering? Does he decree an abusive childhood, orchestrate a jet crash, steer a tornado through a community? Or did he simply wind up the world's mainspring and now is watching from a distance?

    What did you like best about Where Is God When It Hurts?? What did you like least?

    The in depth study of those is pain seemed to drag on and on... this was both the best and worst part of this book. The necessity to understand the pain demands spending time with the characters in pain. At times it was challenging to focus.


    Was Where Is God When It Hurts? worth the listening time?

    Absolutely

    Deep within you lies the same faith and longing that sent Peter walking across the wind-swept Sea of Galilee toward Jesus. In what ways is the Lord telling you, as he did Peter, 'Come'? John Ortberg invites you to consider the incredible potential that awaits you outside your comfort zone. Out on the risky waters of faith, Jesus is waiting to meet you in ways that will change you forever, deepening your character and your trust in God. The experience is terrifying. It's thrilling beyond belief. It's everything you'd expect of someone worthy to be called Lord.

    Mike Henry Sr. says: "All time favorite"
    "Great wisdom - a little slow at times"

  • Blue Like Jazz: Non-Religious Thoughts on Christian Spirituality

    Story
    (150)

    In Donald Miller's early years, he was vaguely familiar with a distant God. But when he came to know Jesus Christ, he pursued the Christian life with great zeal. Within a few years he had a successful ministry that ultimately left him feeling empty, burned out, and, once again, far away from God. In this intimate, soul-searching account, Miller describes his remarkable journey back to a culturally relevant, infinitely loving God.

    Kiel West says: "The author's voice made annoying by narration?"
    "Affirmation for intellectual Christians."

    In the midst of an ever more hurried schedule of meetings, chores, kids' activities, and volunteer commitments, there is hope for a change of pace. Dr. Tim Kimmel, one of America's top advocates speaking for the family today, examines the speed at which families live to reveal not only how to put on the brakes but how to get off the freeway altogether.

    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Most: Reinforcement of our need for Christ - for salvation and everyday life.
    Least: ??


    What about Tim Kimmel’s performance did you like?

    It was great having the author reading. He is clearly passionate about this subject - but handles it like a good counselor should.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Little House on the Freeway?

    Live life against the backdrop of eternity.
    There are few lists and methodologies he provides. I will need to get a hardcopy to make use of them
