Book Description

When life falls apart, where is God? Does he care? Can he fix things? Does he really love us? In an uncertain world, people need to know that God is still in control, that he still cares for us and even suffers with us, and that he has a plan that cannot be defeated.

In his compassionate and caring style, Warren W. Wiersbe offers beaten-down readers a positive treatment of suffering that reveals the Bible's authoritative and comforting answers to their big questions. His faith-bolstering insight will show readers that, with God as their source of comfort, strength, and hope, they can weather the storms of life--and come out on top.

Tough times require a powerful God

In his compassionate and caring style, Warren Wiersbe shows you that the answers to these big questions are available, reliable, and encouraging.

His faith-bolstering insights show you that, with God as your source of comfort, you can weather the storms of life--and come out on top.

5.0 out of 5 stars What To Do When Life Is Hard June 29, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Originally published as 'Why Us?" in 1984, this reissue by Wiersbe seeks to answer the question: Why do bad things happen to seemingly innocent people? Other questions addressed by Wiersbe include: If God knows everything and is all powerful then why doesn't he stop tragedies from happening? Is God limited in what He can do? Why does God seem so absent during our disappointments and pains? How Big is God? And When life falls apart, how do you pray?

Wiersbe wisely and sensitively tackles these tough questions and many more, pointing us to faith in the grace and power of God as our greatest hope in our time of need. He motivates the reader to not run or hide from God, but to "look up when life gets you down." The author does not minimize the harsh realities of suffering but provides a plethora of resources from the Scriptures to help us cope and grow during the difficulties of life which are sure to come.

If you are looking for a clear, comforting, and helpful book to help you deal with difficult times in life this is a great place to start. Wiersbe writes a book that will not bog you down in philosophical discussion, but give you practical solutions to your grappling with pain and suffering. He will guide you into peace and rest as you encounter God's grace and power in a new and fresh way through the ultimate sufferer - the Lord Jesus Christ.

I slowly read this book during a period in which I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Cancer, and went through a very difficult treatment and recovery process. Personally, I was helped immensely by Wiersbe's care and wisdom and highly recommend this book for those going thorough suffering and would recommend it even more in preparing for future suffering which is inevitable.

5.0 out of 5 stars What I needed. August 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My son died in an auto accident early in 2012. I have struggled with depression most of my adult life. This event devastated me. I resigned from my pastorate. I suffer with CHF, CHD, and have been told by my Drs. I could die at any time since Dec. 2001! That should have been me in that casket and him looking at me, not the way it was. This book helped to clarify things for me. I've read other books on this topic. This one was easy to read and understandable. I recommend this book for anyone asking the question, "Why?".

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect timing for a perfect book! June 19, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I pre-ordered this book from Amazon because I thought it would be a good read and one that I could use to encourage others. The day it came in the mail I had surgery for a broken ankle... not what I planned for this summer. God's timing was perfect. I recommend this book for everyone, whether you are "up or down"!

3.0 out of 5 stars Relatable only to some... May 29, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a voracious reader of a variety of materials, and spiritual enlightenment is of no exception. The mere title of the book drew me in, and I was very optimistic of the results.

First and foremost, this book was written in 1984, a completely different time that the era in which we live. Although that is not always relevant (look at many classic reading materials), it can be in a world that contains less than optimal daily circumstances (autistic children, single parents, divorce, etc.)

With that kept in mind, this was a very slow read for me. I did not experience what the previous reviewers did... possibly because I have lived in perpetual years of challenge that are relatable in some areas to the examples given previously. The book, although scripturally sound, does not truly permeate and translate to that aspect of being "down".

I felt as if the book was very surface, and relatable to a particular audience. Perhaps that audience did not include individuals like myself, because I did not feel connected at all to the writer's conversation to the reader.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book January 15, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a good book to read when you are going through adversity. I It points out that burdens can be blessings. Look at how much Jesus suffered. What we might be going through is nothing compared to what He went through.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strength for the Future December 17, 2013
By Clarice
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What else to expect from this writer but excellence. He can expound the Word of God and open up new thoughts from the Word. This has to be my sixth book I have read by Wiersbe. I highly recommend reading materials by him that can even be used for Bible Class and group work. Any age range his books are useful.
