God does many things we do not understand, but that doesn't keep us from wanting to understand. When faced with suffering, sickness, death, and confusion, most of us want to know why? Beloved writer Elisabeth Elliot knew too well this feeling of uncertainty. But she also knew that God is faithful to answer us in our distress.

On Asking God Why offers honest insights into many of today's most prevalent heartaches, including sickness and death, family issues and loneliness, aging and hopelessness. Chapter by chapter, this insightful book will remind you that God invites his children to lay our questions before him—because in him we will find every answer we need.
