It's not so much a question as it is a heart cry -- a cry of hurt, bewilderment, anger, anguish. We all have those "why" moments -- or weeks, or months -- when we encounter one of those painful mysteries that is too much for us to handle. When the innocent suffer, when bad things happen to good people, when wars break out, and terrorists strike and sickness sets in and death appears at our doorstep, that's when we find ourselves asking: Why did this have to happen? Why didn't God intervene? Why is God silent? Why hasn't God met my needs? Why doesn't God perform a miracle? Why me? Anne Graham Lotz knows what it's like to wrestle with these kinds of questions in the midst of pain and confusion. In a period of eighteen months, a hurricane leveled part of her property, a fire destroyed her husband's dental office, her parents were hospitalized repeatedly, and her son was diagnosed with cancer. That whirlwind of crisis left Anne gasping for breath, and the question of "why" loomed large. But her faith held, and the wisdom she had found in Scripture proved strong enough to carry her through. In this heartfelt book, dedicated to those, like herself, who have unanswered prayers, Anne shares that wisdom, which draws on one of the most vivid "why" stories in the New Testament -- the death of Lazarus. This is not a book of pat or superficial answers. In fact, it's not really a book of answers at all. It's a book about the Answer. Anne Graham Lotz understands that our whys are usually whimpers of pain -- we've come to doubt whether God can help us or even wants to. Speaking directly to that doubt, Anne guides us through our questions to the One whose eternal answer is not "Because," but "I Am" ... I am with you. I know what I'm doing. I love you with an everlasting love. Trust Me! Book jacket.
