What Do You Do When God Is Silent?
Writing out of the pain of his wife’s fight for her life but also the wonder of watching the prayer movement they founded touch many lives, Pete Greig wrestles with the dark side of prayer and emerges with a hard-won message of hope, comfort and profound biblical insight for all who suffer in silence.
“If you are hurting and secretly wondering ‘Where is God?’ and ‘Why’s this happened to me?’ and ‘How come my prayers aren’t working?’ then I dedicate this book to you…”
– Pete Greig
Pete Greig has written an extraordinary honest book. A few [books about prayer] have been so important in my life that they made getting through all the others worthwhile – just to find these gems. I think, for example, of Richard Foster’s ‘Prayer’, or C. S. Lewis’ ‘Letters to Malcolm’… The book you are now holding is the most recent member of this “B-List.” (There is no “A-List.” “B” in this case means best, beautiful, and be sure to recommend to others.)
