From the Back Cover
It took thirty years to build Peter's faith, but only three months to knock it down.
When Peter Chin moved his family into an inner-city neighborhood to plant a church, he was sure he was doing what God wanted. But in the span of a few months his family experienced a heartbreaking miscarriage, a break-in at their home, a breast cancer diagnosis, and the termination of their health insurance. Why would God allow these things to happen?
But God had one more surprise prepared for the Chins: a child, conceived in the most unlikely and dangerous of circumstances, through whom Peter would realize that although God's ways were wild and strange, they were always good.
Filled with twists and turns, deep insights, and surprising humor, Blindsided by God explores the reality of suffering, the mystery of God's ways, and why, even in the darkest times, there's always reason for hope.

While reading, friends kept coming to mind that have suffered, and, as a result, struggled with God and their faith. I kept thinking, "They need to read this." He asks questions familiar to those experiencing pain and shares his revelations about the character of God in the midst of it all. Most books I've read on suffering are more suited for theologians or scholars, but by weaving his personal story with Biblical truths, Chin makes this book accessible to a wider audience. It is authentic, captivating, and well-written.
