When Answers Aren’t Enough: Experiencing God as Good When Life Isn’t
I’m a pastor; I know how to reconcile a good God with an often evil world. I could give those answers in my sleep. But what should I do when those simple solutions fail to satisfy? When the sadness is heavy and sinking, and answers aren’t enough? I believe God is good. But how do I experience him as good when grief is raining down? After the massacre at Virginia Tech on April 16, 2007, this seemed as relevant as any topic I could tackle. I wrote the book for myself, for my fellow Hokies, and for anyone stuck in grief. Sooner or later, we all will be.
“No campus pastor should have to face the questions Matt Rogers did after the shooting at his school, Virginia Tech. Then again, can any of us avoid these very questions? Tempered by tragedy, Matt explores both doubt and hope, and emerges with compassionate wisdom.”
