Written from Greig's own experience when confronted with his wife's serious medical condition, the book starts from the questions of why and where is God from Christ's experience in the Garden of Gethsemane and works through issues of prayer including lament and issues of abandonment (Good Friday and Christ's crucifixion), the silence of God (Saturday and Christ in the tomb) and the hope that springs eternal both in the future but also in the here and now (Christ's resurrection).
The reader will not find easy answers in this book and therein lies it's strength. Greig does an excellent job summing up the theology and thinking behind unanswered prayer and also in giving that theology a human face. These are not abstract discussions about prayer but very real considerations faced by anyone who has pleaded to God for something and not received an answer.
I would recommend this book to anyone seeking to better understand real prayer in a real world with a real God. I cannot praise it highly enough.
