    Great for the individual or group study...

    Richard Rohr shares with the reader his deep understanding of God in the scriptures and of his presence in our lives. With theological wisdom he takes the mystery of suffering into the light of day, opening a new and real way of understanding suffering. It is the one peril we Christians must avoid.... that of misunderstanding suffering as a punishment or of God turning His back on us. But rather that God is present there as strongly as He is when we are joyful. The book winds through many areas of Christian experience. It is a powerful text for a group to journey together with.
