Summary:
"This ... book points to the odd disparity between our concept of God and the realities of life. How can God be so hungry for relationship with us and yet seem so distant? Why, if God cares for us, do bad things happen? What can we expect from God after all? In search of answers, this book gives a unique bird's eye view of the entire Bible"-- Back cover.
