Seriously, God? Making Sense of Life Not Making Sense by Michael White and Tom Corcoran

 Have you lost your faith, or are you feeling angry with God, or in despair? This book will help. Fr Michael White and Tom Corcoran share parables and stories from the Bible, and stories from personal experiences so that you can see things differently. They study the common questions of why we experience pain and misery, loss of faith, our feelings that our prayers are not answered, and many other concerns. Handling grief and wondering why someone we loved died for seemingly no reason also plays a big part in this helpful book.

I had forgotten some of the parables and stories from the Bible, so it was good to read them again, and to read the author's interpretations, and how they can help us with our own experiences of life. For example, reading about Joseph's sufferings, and his decision to forgive his brothers, can also assist us with our own pain, and sturggles to forgive.

The part that I found especially moving, however, was the chapter on Revelation and the idea of heaven. Revelation is an especially difficult book to understand, but I found the author's explanation of it beautifully written, and very inspiring. I'd like to read more of their books.

I received this free ebook from NetGalley in return for an honest review.
