An interesting provocative story about an Australian Catholic priest and his sister, a good person and a nurse doing charitable works. In an accident she suddenly becomes a quadriplegic. Hence, the title of the book. She even considers euthanasia. Ethical questions arise. She grapples with decisions; decides to live and goes on to lead a productive life. It's an easy, interesting read. It makes those who are whole feel grateful and gives hope to those who are not.

The author uses a personal experience of family tragedy to begin a reflection on who God is and who God isn't. He puts to rest many if not most of the misconceptions about who God is and what God's will is, from the erroneous to the mythic. I've already given away over a half dozen of these gems to folks who struggle with an understanding of God in their lives.

This is a great book. It has more thought provoking material in it than any book I have read. It is not long but it is not necessarily an easy read. I found myself stopping my read and re-read what I just read then just thing about what Fr. Leonard had written. He challenges our preconceived ideas and he give his raltional for make his point. I highly recommend the book.

This short work is based on the author's own experience of tragedy in his family, along with his theologically sound image of God. We all sometimes ask the question as to God's whereabouts when we or family members are suffering, but it is our image of God that is usually at fault. Leonard points out the notion of God that is implied in some of our commonplace observations, some of which have not changed since the Book of Job.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Tessie on July 9, 2011
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The premise of this book is similar to Rabbi Harold Kushner's "When Bad Things Happen To Good People". Here, though, one isn't obligated to take away God's power in a particular area to be able to accept what is being stated. This book suggests that like a parent, God chooses not to "know" all the details so that we may grow and mature by using our free will. I found this book most comforting and it enabled me to reconcile the evil that occurs in this life experience with God's love for us.

We are using this book for a faith sharing group in our church. It would be equally useful in a bereavement or other support group. We find the stories and insights applicable to our own lives and comforting in that the author's image of God is very 2011.

I loved this book because it provides a down to earth response to the question posed by the title- 'Where the hell is God' especially in our hour of need. The book is thought provoking by calling into question the way we think about 'our' God. It challenges the reader to re-evaluate their most basic beliefs and practises. I would recommend this book to anybody who is trying to find answers to the most difficult of questions about why things are the way they are.

If you've ever found yourself really pondering questions such as "God, why me? don't you love me?" --and I doubt there are many believers who have not--then, this book is a MUST. So far the best book, essay, treatise, article on the subject I have ever read (not that I've read that many anyway, but I am trying to make my point). This book helped me get closer to the God of my misunderstanding by debunking some myths and negative beliefs. I am not one to say, but if this is a theological work, (and I think it is), don't be put off by that. Because it reads like a favorite book: it's personal, inspiring, intelligent, deep yet simple, and keeps you looking forward to your cozy and quiet evening reading time.
