Father Morris has written a wonderful book addressing the age-old question: if God loves us, then why is there so much suffering in the world? Rather than providing the reader with the standard, church-approved answers, Father Morris uses real life people and situations to illustrate how that although we may not understand God's plan and fully comprehend the nature of his love for us, God offers us a way to deal with the suffering and transform our spiritual life. His "Principles for Freedom-Living" are a guide that anyone, regardless of personal religous beliefs or preferences can use to better their existence in this world.

The author takes you through the steps of recognizing the answer of why bad things happen and God allows them. It is thought provoking and filled with examples and life experiences.

Father Jonathan Morris has achieved a difficult feat with The Promise: His book is accessible to readers from all walks of life, yet never offers facile platitudes in answer to that universal question, "Why is there suffering?" He examines the many forms of suffering in the light of Christ's teachings and example, and arrives at answers that are simple, yet profound. While the book is written from the perspective of a Catholic Christian, anyone could benefit from reading this book, regardless of their creed or lack of one.

This book is well written and approaches a very deep and philosophical question in a very straight-forward manner. While it probably would not satisfy someone will little or no faith, anyone considering themselves a person of faith, who struggles with the idea of God allowing tragedies to befall innocent people will find plenty to ponder and consider. It has certainly helped me to consider the whole subject in ways I did not before.

This book presents God's caring hand in a wonderful, readable way. It is the kind of book you will want to have in a handy place where you can refer to it again and again. It draws you in closer to Jesus, and helps you understand how much He loves you.

This was a great book. He puts things in easy simple terms. His "Principles for Freedom-Living" is a must read. I've been to church my whole life, but found a lot of Aha moments in this book. It is very insightful.
