The name of this book is misleading. The title leaves the impression that this book will present deep insights into the mind of God on the topic of God and human suffering, when in fact, that is not the subject at all.

The title of this book should be "How to Walk with God on the Road You Never Wanted to Travel". Mark Atteberry makes it VERY plain and clear at the beginning that this is a HOW TO book, only, and not a book that seeks to answer the WHY questions.

The exodus of the Israelites out of the land of ancient Egypt is both the backdrop and the main source of Atteberry's material, which he uses to demonstrate the lessons he wishes to teach. Each chapter contains a mix of biblical scriptures along with his experiences as a pastor/counselor. His biblical discussions were much more helpful to me than his personal experience stories.

One of the important things this book drove home in my mind, is that a lifetime walk with God is a guaranteed certainty that the journey will be on a route no one would ever deliberately choose. Be careful what you ask for.....you just may get it!

On the other hand, it is an irritating turn-off that Atteberry uses the "Devil's gonna get you" mentality throughout his book. Living in fear of Satan is not a basis for righteous living. It is more important to live a life motivated by the love of God.

After reading this book, I knew I must pass it on to others in the Body of Christ who have been deeply wounded and to recommend it to others. From wounds inflicted by unwanted divorce; a child in prison; disappointment in how life has brought sorrow; wherever the path of life took them and they never meant to go -- without exception, each person I passed this book on to has these words "Praise God for Mark Atteberry and this book!" Some have even stated that if this book had been in their hands earlier, they would have been saved some of the anguish they went through.

I just finished reading this book and loved it. It helps put things into perspective. I would recommend it to anyone who is going through trials in their life. It's on my all time favorite books list, I just bought a copy for my mother-in-law and am encouraging many of my friends to read it.

I have used this book to assist my church ministry in divorce care and in my own walk down the road. It is sound from a biblical perspective and filled with common sense solutions. If you find yourself lost, wandering in the wilderness, grab thus survival guide.It works.

I was so impressed with this book that I went online and bought nine copies to give to friends and family. It is appropriate for anyone dealing with loss. Loss of a spouse, a child or dealing with divorce. I read it in one day. I started on a Saturday morning and could not put it down til late that evening. This is a great book to help deal with pain in life.

I purchased this book for myself and subsequently for two others who had an incurable disease. It is Bible based, uplifting and a rewarding read. I will read it again and again!

I read this book recently. I found it was the same old story written by most religious authors. I did not walk away from this book feeling overwhelmed or in awe.

I enjoyed the real-life stories he tells within the book, as I thought they made a bigger impression into why things happen the way they tend to do in life.

However, towards the end in the discussion section, I was a little drawn away that he offers no suggestions no how to go about locating or seeking the items/defining moments in your life, so as to answer the questions and progress onwards in your faith journey.

I felt that this book might be geared more towards those that have already heard God's call versus those that are seeking Him out. Lost sheep would do better reading another book.

God is an amazing God! A God of deep relational love even when we feel abandoned because of the path we find ourselves on. No, it's never the path I would have chosen or wished on my worst enemy but I can say it has stretched me and given me insight to how much my Abba Father loves me. Without clinging to His promises and His scriptures I would not have made it. This book helps you understand HOW God will see you through anything you are experiencing. It is NOT a why God is allowing it.......I am so thankful for the author breaking that down right from the beginning. When you feel abandoned due to horrific events and your friends and pastor do not know how to help you......first look to God's word. His scriptures bring healing and peace like nothing else can. And read this book as a road map for finding your way out of despair, grasp the concept of forgiveness (that was the toughest issue for me) and learn to move forward. This book will walk you through the steps, give you encouragement, and the "tools" you need to put one foot in front of the other in the most difficult situations. My life was turned upside down after a series of tragic life changing events that left most of my christian friends not even knowing what to say....... and most slipped away. If you find your world turned upside down you need to read this book for guidance.....christian guidance that will give you solid grounding when you feel as though you are tumbling down a jagged cliff full speed and the bottom is coming at you fast. I have read several books since my life changing events occurred a little over a year ago and this author has been the most helpful by far.
