The Promise

I have the book and my mother-in-law gave me the book on CD.  The Promise by Father Jonathan Morris is excellent.  The subtitle is "God's Purpose and Plan for when Life Hurts" .  It has really been helpful!  The book contains three parts:

1) God on Trial: the doubts, the dismay, the queations, the complaints
2) Spiritual and Emotional Healing: The pain, the problem, the truth-telling
3) Principles for Freedom-Living: The path to acceptance and transformation

If you have ever wondered why an all loving God allows suffering, this book is for you! The next book I want to tackle, after I finish reading Julia Childs' book "My Life in France" is: "Having a Mary Heart in a Marth World"
