Publisher's Summary

Hard times make us look for God. Everyone has problems. But if we could solve all our difficulties ourselves, would we ever search for God? Psychologist John Townsend says "It is actually the very unfixability of our problems and our powerlessness to bring right results that keep us asking, 'Where is God?'" With a compelling narrative, Townsend offers new insights into the pursuit for God's help and presence.

Designed to give listeners hope and meaning, he divides the discussion into three parts:

  • Why does a loving God allow us to experience difficulties?
  • How is God active in the middle of our hard times
  • How can I find God?

With powerful stories and practical applications, Where Is God? assures listeners that even when it feels as though God is absent, it is his nature to be in relationship, to connect with, love, and guide us. And when we seek him with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, he shows up in ways that transform us forever.

Sacrifices no hard places to know God as faithful

Would you listen to Where Is God? again? Why?

Yes, i would over and over again. I know there much more to mine and be comforted and encouraged by each time i listen.

What did you like best about this story?

I have been a great fan of Drs Townsend and Cloud over last 20 years. Difficult at times for me to confess that they seem to touch my center more than the beloved pastors i am sheperded by. And in this audio book, Dr Townsend comes through as someone who does not cut any corners to examine our relationship with God and why "more of God" is always better. Even in the toughest of times.

Which scene was your favorite?

Compassion and faith, without negating reality. So much scripture too that immediately resonates to make one look forward to the benefits or goodness of God in His myriad resources and ways.. Thank you Dr Townsend!.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No

REVIEW OF: WHERE IS GOD

Loved this book.
An especially "stand out" part was when a lady finally told God, she felt she only had tears left for him; HE excepted her tears and for awhile at her devotional times That is what she gave Him!
Psalm 56:8b.
Thank you!
