Overview

God has not forgotten about you.

That's hard to remember in the face of disillusionment or heartache. Unbelief and doubt are buried deep within us, especially when we question God's goodness in the face of loss and abandonment. Ted Kluck's world was turned upside down after experiencing a failed adoption, where he found himself propelled into a year of doubt and disillusionment. Ronnie Martin struggled with the kind of identity and idolatry issues that come with being a well-known recording artist, before the unexpected death of his father allowed those sins to be brought to the surface of his heart. It is in the midst of these and other everyday stories that we learn how God reveals His boundless grace to every one of us.

Whether you've lost someone you loved, suffered career failure, or simply been let down by a fellow Christian, it's natural to wonder whether God has forgotten about you. You're not alone. But as a believer, you can trust that overcoming individual challenges will prepare you for a greater purpose. Kluck and Martin's raw revelations about their mistakes and disappointments will help you on your own journey to finding God when you're standing in the dark.

"This work runs the gamut from the loss of a loved one, to questioning God, to personal demons such as the lack of humility, to creating God in our image by having our own 'personal Jesus.' Finding God in the Dark will appeal to admirers of Philip Yancey's Where Is God When It Hurts? Readers who are struggling spiritually or have friends or family who are will find this resource helpful."

    Finding God in the Dark is a good read that I would encourage an

    Finding God in the Dark is a good read that I would encourage any Christian to read if they were looking for something to read. Kluck and Martin enter into a topic that affects everyone in the world, bust especially Christians. It is refreshing to read and be reminded that God is still there, even in the midst of the worst possible disappointment or trial you can be going through. It reminds you that God is still in control and sovereign over everything that is happening. Both authors had experienced disappointments in their lives and struggled with, where is God in all of this?




     Kluck and Martin both wrote chapters in the book. Kluck comes at it from the layperson’s point of view, and Martin comes at it from a pastoral view point. They are also writing through a Reformed Calvinistic point of view.




    I was able to read this book in three hours, and I didn't want to put it down. I was interested in what Kluck was going to say in his next chapter, at the same time, I was equally interested in what Martin was going to bring to the book in his next chapter. This book was not "super" theologically deep, but it did get me to think about my own life and how I was dealing with disappointment and trials. 




    I really enjoyed the last three chapters in the book, as it got more practical and biblical. Martin really brought forth his "pastor", and was able to provide some good insight to what the Word of God had to say about finding God in the dark. I enjoyed both the authors honesty and realness they brought to the book, and also the fact that they were able to come through their trials and disappointments trusting and loving God more. 



    I did not enjoy Kluck’s reference to smoking in the first chapter. It was unnecessary, and it will only cause the reader to be distracted. The movie Kluck refers to a lot, Jerry Maguire, I did not like at all. I believe he needs to find a different movie if he is going to keep using it as an example. Personally, I had never seen it or heard of it until I read the book. I started watching it after I had read the book, and I didn't finish it. I would not recommend watching Jerry Maguire.
    I received this book from Bethany House Publishers for the purpose of reviewing
