I bought this book on the strength of a recommendation from Tullian Tchividjian on a podcast interview with Joe Thorn, both of whom are admirable pastors and preachers. It is not a very lengthy treatise (85 pp.) on Christ's substitutionary atonement and begins quite well, leading one to believe well into the book that one had indeed stumbled onto a valuable gospel exhortation, a balm of Gilead indeed. The prose is simple and direct, but weighty matters are clearly tackled. I found the discourse on Law particularly insightful.

But by the time one reaches page 59 and Zahl's consideration of theodicy, that is, Chapter V ("Massacre of the Innocents"), the flies appear in the ointment. I began reading with more caution when Zahl mistakes a passage in Elie Wielsel's Night (a literary memoir of Auschwitz) as suggesting that in the suffering of the innocent, "God is asking the same question we ask: 'Why?' He is asking the question in the most direct way love can ask it, by laying himself on the line" (p.66). On the contrary, Wielsel is suggesting like Nietzsche that God had become irrelevant, if not outright non-existent in the most immediate and profound concerns of mankind. Zahl goes on to say, "Given the innocent affliction that shoots through our personal and social histories, we would indeed be ashamed to use the word just to describe God were it not for God's being ashamed of himself. God's shame, God's humiliation at the horror of man's injustice is manifest in his shameful, humiliating death. Not only does he tear out his heart by giving up the person most precious to him but in that person he gives up his good name and reputation. This is enormously important. It is his good name that believers have sought to protect against the slurs of humanity's just grievance.

This book is very well written and applies the Gospel to abstract things like stress and depression. Short but well worth the read. His larger book on Grace is great as well.

Format: Paperback
This short book from the pen of Paul Zahl is remarkable in its wedding of modern-day problems with biblical truths of grace and forgiveness. Born of Dr. Zahl's pastoral experience at Grace Church New York City in the late 1970's, the book addresses universal experiences of anxiety, depression, and guilt and while holding out the promise of hope, community and unconditional love. Reading Who Will Deliver Us? is a worthwhile investment of your time on these timeless problems facing every human being. A real keeper.
