Pain calls our most basic beliefs about God into question. Philip Yancey’s When Life Hurts addresses five major questions brought on by pain: Is God competent? Is He really so powerful? Is He fair? Why doesn’t He seem to care about pain? And where is God when I need Him most? Yancey provides thought-provoking answers to questions faced by believers in their darkest moments and reveals that even in suffering and pain — and sometimes because of them — God’s competence, power, wisdom, and love still shine through.
