Disappointment with God (by Philip Yancey)

'Disappointment with God' is an excellent book by one of my favourite modern Christian writers, Philip Yancey.

The book looks at people who have felt as if they were 'let down' by God. It focuses also on the Biblical book of Job, and asks the questions: Is God hidden? Is he silent? Is he fair?

I found it very inspiring and encouraging. No clich├ęs or pat answers, but honest attempts to find some meaning and reason in the apparently random quirks and problems of life.

Highly recommended.
