Book Review: Where is God?

I recently received my first book from Book Sneeze to review.  It is titled "Where is God?" by Dr. John Townsend.  

     I enjoyed reading the book. It was an eye opener.  When things in your life seem to go wrong and you are upset, a lot of people will ask that oh so familiar question: "Where is God?"  I know in my life I have asked that and I asked that a lot this past year when things seem to never go right.  This book really helped me put things in perspective on where God is when you feel you need him the most.  My favorite quote from the book was on page 5. "..."Where is God?" is not actually a question they're willing to receive an answer to. It is a protest. It is a statement of how badly they hate what is going on.  It is a desire, a wish, a cry of pain and anguish.  It is an emotional reaction to a great difficulty.  The desire simply says, I want things better.

If you have a chance pick up the book and give it a read.  You might just learn a few things.
