Publisher's Summary

A must-read for anyone who has ever asked God, "Why me?"

It's easy to trust God when things are going our way and the world makes sense. But when suffering strikes - especially seemingly senseless suffering - we are filled with doubt and stunned by events spiraling beyond our control.

In the midst of suffering, we often question the very foundation of our faith - our belief in the God who says he loves us. Since our trust and obedience rest on God's character, the questions that life's tragedies force us to face are difficult, even frightening:

  • Who is God?
  • Can he really be trusted?
  • What are his purposes in the face of suffering?
  • If he can stop suffering, why doesn't he?

Joni Eareckson Tada, a woman who has lived in a wheelchair for more than thirty years, and Steve Estes, a pastor and one of Joni's closest friends, explore the answers. When God Weeps is not so much a book about suffering as it is about God. It tackles tough questions about heaven and hell, horrors and hardships, and why God allows suffering in this life.

Through a panoramic overview of what the Bible says about suffering, the authors make clear who God is, why he permits so much heartache and pain, and how it is we can trust him. With both a practical edge and heartfelt warmth, When God Weeps offers dependence on his love and mercy in spite of our doubts, fears, longings, and questions.

"By 2 who have cut through the fog to see God clearly even when it hurts, we are led to know his love, tears, and ultimately, his joy." (Dr. Joseph Stowell)

Does not match the physical book

Please be aware that this audio does not match the book. Great book but I was hoping to hear it read straight from the physical book.

What if Jesus doesn't heal you???

Gnarly book about what happens when Jesus wants you to not get better.

Ask and you shall receive???

Denied!

Asks a lot of tough questions about why God inflicts suffering on the world and church instead of healing us like when he walked the earth.

I guess we'll figure it out at the second coming.

I've listened to this book now at work about 5 times.

Excellent work.

Thought provoking.

Wow

Touched my heart. Joni notices God's glory in the darkest of places. She is a wonderful reader as well, bringing her own words to life. A joy to listen to.

All Should Read!

If you could sum up When God Weeps in three words, what would they be?

Very helpful. I recommend all Christians read or listen to this book. I have not read any other book other than the Bible that is more helpful to prepare ones self for life's ups and downs. It is a shortened "abridged" version compared to the book version of the same.

Some nuggets I never really considered.

You can't really know God unless you suffer with Him. A Life changing simple message. Something that I will be talking with God about for the rest of my life.

Eye opening

As a quadriplegic myself I needed to hear this and I plan on listening to it multiple times. I love how God used her to speak to so many people through the book. This is a blessing in a book
